Exploring Earth’s Archetypes through Poetry & Image: Reclaiming the Wild Soul

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 702

Jungian psychologist Marion Woodman writes that while a metaphor carries 1,000 volts of energy, its core, the archetype, carries 100,000 volts. In this experiential workshop, the presenter will lead participants on an archetypal journey through the five landscapes of planet Earth. Deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands are all aspects of our own psyche and soul, and can be used to form a foundation for poetry and image-making in therapeutic practice. After exploring each of these archetypal landscapes, participants will choose one landscape to symbolize their current personal or professional life challenge; the chosen landscape will be used as a template for self-exploration through creative writing and art. This exercise is a useful tool in helping clients explore aspects of the self through identification with the Earthly archetypes.

This workshop is also part of the multiple-session, 4-day Immersive Training: Archetypal Approaches in the Expressive Arts TherapiesRegistration is available separately for each day.
