WORKSHOP: Active imagination is a dialogue that you enter into with different aspects of yourself that are generally unconscious. Conscious participation transforms it from passive fantasy to active imagination. It is a dialogue, not a monologue, with energy systems that frequently show up in dreams, moods, symptoms, neurotic habits, and even illness. Example: I awake with a mood. Instead of letting it ruin my day, I can sit down and ask: What or who inside me is angry? Where in my body can I feel this, and what is it like? What is its image? By working actively with these powerful patterns of awareness, we can change dysfunctional habits of mind, reduce inner conflicts, and draw upon deep wisdom. In this workshop, we utilize dialogues from literature, case studies, and examples from C.G. Jung’s own active imagination practice as recorded in The Red Book. : Jerry M.
