This workshop will be in three parts: First, we will examine Jung’s theory and practice of psychic fertility or creativity and divination. Second, we will experientially explore psychic images arising within the group. We will work singly and collaboratively to delve into the (sacred) well of psychic energy constellated by Jungian arts practices and by archetypal activation between participants. Third, we will take time to devise a project that might stretch from initial psychic images to a work of Jungian arts-based research that can enter and participate in the anima mundi. Put another way, we will envision JABR as psychotherapy for the collective.
