Description

The workshop will combine Jung’s meditation technique, active imagination, as a tool for writing — or any creative endeavor — with further discussion of alchemy, its images, symbols and definitions, and how they may relate to an individual’s life. This should stimulate participants’ memories and thoughts and help them sink deeper into their personal writing. We will dive into the alchemical stages of calcination, solutio, coagulation, sublimation, mortification, separatio, and/or coniunctio. If there is time, we’ll discuss ways to amplify personal writing to make it more interesting to the reader. Time will be given for private writing and discussion through breakout rooms and collectively as a group.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand the alchemical stages of calcination, solutio, coagulation, sublimation, mortification, separatio, and/or coniunctio.
  2. Witness the Self at work in their lives through writing exercises
  3. Understand the benefit of and how to use active imagination

Her educational training lends itself well to digging down deep to the perennial root of unquestioned thoughts and behaviors in order to unearth fresh perspectives.
