In the workshop, we take the dialog from the lecture further into application. Practical tools will be given. We will tune in together with the larger psyche and the transcendent via dreams and active imagination with the somatic unconscious. And we will utilize the Axiom of Maria and more to help grow this awakened heart field that helps us with the abject, through active imagination, writing exercises, discussion, and meditation. 

The warrior archetype, whose aim in the psyche is true to Eros, that serves the mysterium coniunctionis -- the union of opposites -- will also be explored to deepen our experience and understanding of these forces at work in our lives.
