Freud used to say that dreams are a royal road to the Unconscious; but through directed phantasies and active imagination we can use the same road, being more aware of what is happening - we can actually be dreaming and stay awake at the same time. Another way to do it is to let our Unconscious express itself in different kinds of art - drawing, claying, playing music etc.
During our training we will explore the path to our deepest feelings, needs, and drives through imagination and creativity.
This training will allow you to:
Master a number of psychological techniques for your work and personal life
Experience the wonderful freedom of self-expression
Learn more about yourself and your hidden talents and resources
Theoretical information about active imagination, directed phantasies, art-therapy, symbols of Unconscious, and the ways of their interpretation
