About the Event
As we engage our personal and collective narrative - our myth - as if it and we are dreaming processes, we may gain entry to different ways of being in the world and within ourselves. Lying deep beneath our personal and literal histories, vaster regions of the psyche beckon the ego to awaken into the fields of the imaginal, the mundus imaginalis. Here we come across particular collective dreaming processes the human psyche has been cultivating over millennia. Let us follow these archetypal dreaming processes through our body as it guides us into our living extensions of active imagination through the psychic expressions of logos, eros, mythos and chaos.
Having Jung’s theory of the functions of the psyche— thinking/feeling, intuition/sensation—as a supportive backdrop for our inquiry, we can engage our relationship to logos, eros, mythos and chaos in their roles and contributions to individuation. Heeding our mysterious telos, Psyche’s deeper intent for each of us, we are drawn down into the depths of the unconscious and beyond.
The talk will include presentations of the creative processes of participants of I Myself am a Dream Workshop series 2020-2021, as well as an opportunity to experience a form of embodiment of I Myself am a Dream through a guided process of “mark- making”.
A basic theoretical platform for participants’ understanding of terms will also be offered.
