Do you ever wonder why people remember shared past events differently? Have you ever been astonished by a memory that suddenly appears with vivid detail in your mind’s eye? Rather than accepting memories as fixed reruns of prior life experiences, join Daphne Dodson for an experiential workshop that will encourage you to open yourself to the notion that memories are imagistic expressions of the psyche that can offer great insight.
In this workshop, you will:
Learn the theory behind approaching our memories as images that influence and are influenced by the past, present, and future selves.
Flow through an asana practice designed to engage the embodied self, wherein we will listen for the wisdom of the body, distinct from the mind, and how it can reveal vital memories and their effects upon us.
Settle into a brief, guided meditation that will invite a memory seeking to be engaged as an animate and autonomous image.
Witness an imaginal remembering session wherein one participant’s memory-image will be met with curiosity and openness to accept its potential gifts of transformation and healing.
There will be time for Q & A. Please bring a notebook and a pen. Open to all. $40
