The Jungian Art Therapy Workshop will use the framework of a guided meditation to represent The House as a Symbol of the Self. Participants will have ample time to use writing prompts and active imagination to work with the rich images evoked by the meditation of the house. It will be an experience of what Jung called a rite d'entrèe, an opening to the unconscious. We will, like Jung, become architects of a personal space, our temenos where we can go to think deeply, soulfully, and creatively. Our time in the meditation will be followed by time to actually craft a tiny house or our own Bollingen sort of tower.
We will send you a list of building materials / art supplies / found objects that you might use for creating your fantastical dwelling.
Please note, this workshop is from 10-2pm versus our regular 10-1pm.
* Please note: all participants should be ready to be present via video and audio on Zoom.
* Details on art materials to have on hand will be shared later.
