Imagination in Dreams
Through the Imaginal,
Healing Alchemy of Nature
Jungian Analyst, IGAP
The image of the labyrinth gives us a path to follow when complexes are activated, when the dream offers guidance and when the imagination heals. It is a left handed path that leads through helplessness towards knowledge. It is also a path where love threads it’s way beside us, Ariadne’s clue as we shall see is fundamental to the process.
With the help of the Myth of the Labyrinth this talk will explore our journeying from helplessness to hopefulness.
As Jung has written:
Without such a vision (the Liverpool dream ) I might perhaps have lost my orientation and been compelled to abandon my understanding. But here the meaning had been made clear. When I parted from Freud, I knew I was plunging into the
unknown. Beyond Freud, after all, I knew nothing; but I had taken the step into darkness. When that happens, and then such a dream comes, one feels it is an act of grace ( Jung CW9, p. 199).

EMBODIED ACTIVE IMAGINATION:
PORTAL TO THE SOUL
Jungian Analyst, IGAP
This will be a Weaving in of Jungian Psychology with Authentic Movement, which is rooted in Jung’s Active Imagination. Clinical work will be included, regarding Trauma and the Body (the per- sonal and the collective body). Trauma in the body is also a mir- ror reflection of the way we traumatise our planet Earth, and the depletion of her resources is a destruction of our immune system.

HILDEGARD ILLUMINATIONS, JUNG & THE RED BOOK
Kayleen Asbo, Passionate Scholar: a cultural historian, musician, writer and teacher who weaves myth, music, psychology, history and art with experiential learning.
Carl Jung and Hildegard of Bingen were both powerful mystics whose connection to transpersonal forces led them to boldly embrace unconventional lives of healing and wholeness. Jung's visionary experiences in the 20th century became the basis for his celebrated Red Book from which all of his later theories on depth psychology emerged. 900 years before, the Benedictine Abbess Hildegard of Bingen had a midlife awakening that opened the floodgates of inspiration, leading her to become a theologian, playwright, composer and pioneer of natural medicine as well as a spiritual director and artist. In this visually rich presentation, cultural historian and mythologist Dr. Kayleen Asbo will share the parallel processes of these two extraordinary geniuses, and reveal how the artistic process can become the seed for our own illumination.
