Using Images in the Process of Transformation
As you walk alongside people as spiritual directors, counselors, teachers, or in conversations with your family, have you ever felt the difficulty of communicating what was underneath beliefs, feelings, and desires? It is so hard to put words to what we don’t necessarily comprehend inside of us.
Carl Jung said the soul understands at the symbolic level. Using imagery can help access deeply held beliefs, feelings, and unconscious desires. This course will explore the use of imagery and introduce a tool that can be immediately incorporated into any practice and personal journey.
This 6-week course is designed to explore the many uses of imagery in the process of healing and transformation. The course is designed for those who companion others in the journey: counselors, spiritual directors, teachers, pastors, life coaches, etc. There will be both teaching and experiential aspects with homework designed to fit individual contexts. We will cover concepts such as: directed and non-directed approaches, exploring imagery within own journey as well as with others, Family of Origin (FOO), Images of God, and much more.
As a result of this course, students will:
Understand foundational concepts in the use of imagery in various contexts.
Gain practical and immediately transferable skills to use in the process of walking alongside others.
Have an experiential base to draw upon to build confidence in the use of imagery in the journey with self and others.
