In this active, experiential workshop, we will explore techniques, designed to help participants reach their full Creative Potential.
Dreamwork: How to interpret powerful symbols that come to you through your dreams. Extremely useful when starting any kind of new project, especially in the exercise where students will Do a Dream Assignment, where they consciously ask their Creative Source to give them a dream the night before the class. (In this workshop it will be, “How can I reach my full Creative Potential?”)
Active Imagination: How to actively engage with the power symbols that come to you through dreams, guided meditations and relaxation exercises, so that you can harness and incorporate them into your creative projects and your life.
Voice Dialogue: An incredibly useful tool in working with the different “Selves”, or energy bodies stored inside you, so that your Aware ego has a better chance of driving your psyche and you can make more clear choices, i.e. -learning to tap into the inner child’s innocent wisdom and creative play aspects, working with the Inner critic so that his/her contributions become more constructive, rather then destructive.
Ritual: The next step after you have contacted the symbols from your Unconscious, where you integrate this information INTO YOUR BODY, bridging the Conscious with the Unconscious Mind, using a combination of sound, movement and symbols to tap into your Creative Fire.
