Approaches to the Use of Imagery

Imagery, in various forms, has a long history of use for healing and therapy. It has historically been widely used as a means of evoking the symbolic potential of the psyche. People from time immemorial have used imagery in their Religious practices, Dream work and healing traditions. More recently, Imagery practices have been modernized and used in the field of Western psychology.
As Imagery practitioners (that is practitioners who choose primarily to describe our work as Imagery-based) we may sometimes wonder how to relate our practice to other approaches that also use imagery. What are differences or similarities between my practice and Jung’s active Imagination approach or Desoille’s Waking Dream Method? What are the roots of what we do? Who are our predecessors? Who are our relatives in this field? What other methods of using imagery have been practiced in the past?
This webinar will focus specifically on Imagery as used in Western psychology and related therapeutic practices that understand imagery to be a means of accessing our psyche and inner life and in doing so, see it as a means of healing and expanding our consciousness. It will provide an historic overview of approaches to the use of imagery as well as looking at some of the language used in describing imagery practices.
