A one-day seminar with the author of recently published 'Waking Dreams' - exploring an approach to therapy that takes images and imagining as a primary focus. Instead of treating images as symbols pointing to meaning elsewhere, the day will emphasise the healing and transformative effects of the imaginative experience itself.

Key principles and the basis of a practical method will be presented for image work within focussed applications such as active-imagination, art-based, and ecotherapy methods, as well as general therapeutic work with memories and future fantasies, present moment perceptions, and transference.

The day will include demonstrations, experiential exercises, and role-plays, with plenty of time for questions and discussion. It will be of interest to any practitioner interested in working more creatively and freely with images and imagining.

CPD certificate of 6 hours provided on completion.
