During these challenging times we are experiencing both a collective and personal dissolution of life as we have known.

Through the chaos and pain there is hope of creating something more meaningful through cultivating a deeper relationship with psyche.

The deep psyche is self-directed and self-correcting. It holds the pathways of human development, pathways for making course corrections in our life’s journey, and pathways for healing the wounds of trauma.

The human psyche moves constantly towards wholeness and wisdom and it communicates by bringing images, symbols, feelings, and energies from the psychic depths to the shore of our awareness…. The land of consciousness.

As each person works their individuation journey they contribute to collective healing.

In the first workshop, we will explore personal symbols and foster deeper appreciation and engagement. This will be through images from dreams, Sandplay and active imagination.

In the second workshop, we will explore how the outer world invites us into relationship through Nature encounters, synchronistic experiences, and shared collective happenings.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define psyche, symbol, and active imagination and how they impact both individual and collective life.
  2. Engage in personal symbol exploration (please bring a symbol that is meaningful to you to the workshop)
  3. Expand awareness of healing potential through symbolic amplification.
  4. Explore how both personal and collective experiences of trauma can lead to a more meaningful way of living.
  5. Apply symbolic awareness in clinical work.
