Aliveness: Transforming our Inner Relationships through Deep Imagery

We are living beings, filled with a multitude of Alivenesses. But often, our perspective is that much of who we are is mechanical or functional, un-alive. We have learned to approach our inner world through understanding rather than relating to it as vibrant, living, intelligent and capable of response and communication.

In this experiential session, Drs. E.S. Gallegos and Mary Diggin will explore the approach taken

in Deep Imagery which begins from the perspective that aliveness is foundational. By engaging the deep imagination, we have the opportunity to relate to, and communicate with, the many alivenesses within. Through the process of Deep Imagery, we can restore awareness of our own deep aliveness and nurture these vital inner relationships. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with aspects of their aliveness through experiential deep imagery work.

From Ego to Essence: Imagery as a Doorway to Spiritual Transformation with Eve Delunas, PhD

One important aspect of spiritual growth is to disengage from our ego selves—the “little me” within each of us that is all about judgment, comparison, separation, and fear—and to align instead with the light, love, higher wisdom, and infinite potential of our greater selves, our Spiritual Essence.

Deepening the Imagery Experience with Institute of HeartMath® Techniques with Elizabeth Page, BA, RRT

Many people who seek help to cope with daily life, experience excessive levels of mental chatter, emotional uproar, anxiety, anger, or helplessness. They have lost confidence in their ability to self-calm, make good decisions, or trust their own judgement. They lack a sense of comfort in their own bodies, and often experience chronic illness. Under these circumstance, peoples’ experience of life is overwhelming with no memory of a time when things were different.

Transformational Leadership Meets Mental Imagery
with Randy Kasper, PhD LCSW BCD

We are living in a time surrounded by divisiveness while longing for community and connection. We hear a call for leaders who can inspire and motivate. For decades, leadership simply meant wielding authority. In recent years, greater wisdom has prevailed and Transformational Leadership (Burns, 1978) calls for vision, inspiration, and collaboration. An overview of leadership approaches will illuminate the unique gifts that mental imagery affords leaders.

Forest Bathing: A Virtual Journey through Integrative Imagery
with Terry Reed, RN, MS

Research shows that both imagery and forest bathing are recognized as an effective disease prevention strategy that reduces stress and supports the immune system. In this workshop, led by Forest Nature Therapy Imagery guide, Terry Reed, we will renew and deepen our relationship to the more than human world of nature.  “The forest is the therapist, and the guide opens the doors.” The transformation comes as each participant responds with their own unique images,  sensations and healing to imaginal invitations and responses to what they notice.
