Embodied Active Imagination and the Subtle Body

Facilitator:
Erica Lorentz, M.Ed., LPC, Diplomate Jungian Analyst (IAAP)

Active imagination requires a state of reverie, half-way between sleep and waking. – C.G. Jung

Friday, Feb. 9, 2024, 10 am to 4 pm
Location: Smart Studio, Ulsoor, Bangalore
Fee: INR 8000 + 18% GST
Register and Pay – PAY INR 9440

In this workshop, participants will explore embodied active imagination which involves a conscious dialogue with the wisdom of the unconscious. The Sufis called this realm of the imagination, the subtle body, and the inter-active field the Mundus Imaginalis. This dialogue is essential for our healing and transformation and was Jung’s preferred method for engaging with the unconscious.

Our guide for this process comes from the psyche itself which manifests symbolically in all art forms, our projections, the body, and dreams. You will begin to learn how to witness and facilitate this with clients without projections and interpretations. You will hear clinical examples of this method that will illustrate this creative force that guides us.

This workshop is open to therapists, practitioners, trainee therapists/practitioners/facilitators, artists and others who may be interested in the body-mind connection.

The hero is king ...
… in our individualistic culture. Campbell popularized it. We all may need to be the hero at some point in our lives. But what about the heroine in all of us? Like the feminine in general, the heroine has been relegated to the cultural shadow, and it’s time she made her appearance again in our culture and our lives.
To move forward and save our planet and our humanity, we must find a new way. The warrior archetype is one sided; patriarchal control is non-inclusive and destructive; greed and narcissism abound.

Borrowing from the Iroquois, the heroine’s journey gives us a new perspective on how to challenge power and create democracy. Ghandi accessed it and brought it to the world stage. Martin Luther King and the women’s movement harnessed it here in the US. The heroine teaches us how to confront negative patriarchy and weave a social fabric that includes and listens to all.

On a personal level, in order to become whole, we must find a healthy relationship to the feminine. The heroine’s journey shows us the path of initiation into the power of the Dark Feminine. This aspect must be redeemed to individuate, whether you are a man or woman. Indigenous cultures know this feminine way. It is an inner journey into the unconscious, as Jung illustrates in the Red Book. He followed his soul. In it is a different orientation to our body, our everyday life, and our relationships.
The heroine’s journey will be given voice in my presentation on the Heroine’s journey in men and women. We will speak of it through history, neuroscience, fairytale, and myth. Come and begin your heroine’s journey with us.

Have you had strange or powerful dreams since Covid? Dreams bridge the outer and inner reality and are inner teaching stories. They are personal and sacred and help us to understand how to respond to stress. Each dream is perfect and only needs our honest devotion to decipher its message.

The facilitator will support the dreamer to enter their dream through movement, art, and writing to engage with the dreamscape. Meaning emerges as we allow ourselves to experience the symbolic language of the dream. As a group, we respectfully support each person’s story without projection and interpretation. No prior experience is necessary.
