It is a fallacy in our culture that only a few souls are truly capable of genuine creativity. Creativity is our birthright as humans, whether or not we possess the talent of the singer, the sculptor or the poet. We are each called upon, in our own way, as luminous beings, to bring into manifestation our highest vision of our planet and ourselves. This workshop is designed to aid participants in tapping into that universal well of creativity to incubate, expand on and actualize greater clarity, originality and fulfillment in our work and in our lives.
The workshop is presented in three segments:
Meeting your Muse
In traditional Greek mythology, the muses were nine daughters of Zeus who inspired mortals in endeavors from music to dance to astronomy to the writing of sacred song. The ancients called upon these goddesses for inspiration, encouragement and the ability to bring their vision to reality. Together we will explore the energy of the muse, meet our own personal Muses and begin to incubate a new and more expansive vision of our lives and our mission on the planet.
Stalking your Story
From the beginning of time, story has been the oldest most basic unit of meaning. Jung believed that each of us carries with us the blueprint of every human story in the part of psyche known as the collective unconscious. This is why depictions of myths, legends and other ancient stories resonate so deeply within us. On a conceptual and imaginal level we recognize the commonality of human experience.
Each of us is the hero(ine) of our own story. But what kind of story are we telling? Is it the one we were born to tell or have we limited the scope of our vision? With the help of animal allies we will track the grandest story that is ours to tell at this time.
Breaking out of Your Box
True creativity flows from emotional, cognitive and spiritual freedom—the ability to immerse ourselves in the waters of the unconscious without fear. Often, though, our progress is hampered by feelings of doubt, unworthiness, insecurity or the naggings of our internal critic who mocks us at every turn.
Somewhere at some time, our imaginal self has been injured by disapproval, harsh environment or other factors which are damaging to our luminous bodies. With our helping spirits as allies, we will journey to find and heal that wounded part of our energy body and to reclaim our full power as co-creators of our lives, our work and our spiritual destinies.
