Our moral compasses are spinning, our “verities” are fraying, our narrative vessels have sprung leaks. In this dismantled mythic world is it possible to find clarity and purpose, even as moral ground is shifting seismically? Reason would tell us not. The ego resists, recommending fierce protection of reactionary positions. It is difficult to “ground” ourselves. We turn to the numinous for guidance.
In this experiential workshop, we will consider the obstacles that obstruct our connection to the numinous. Using Jungian techniques of active imagination and visual thinking, we will interact with archetypal energies we identify in our psyches, seeking to befriend and calm in order to prepare for a meditative journey such as the labyrinth.
To enter a labyrinth is to willingly undertake a solitary journey in search of divine guidance. It requires the seeker to leave everyday concerns at the threshold, like a pair of sandy sneakers, and surrender control. Courage, tenacity, and mindfulness are essential. Within the labyrinth, the seeker is led to a deep connection with the psyche, and returned to the entrance, frequently transformed. The gifts of the labyrinth are clarity of vision and confidence that we have the power to manifest what we hold in our minds and hearts for the well-being of all.
NOTE: Please bring a real flower of your own choosing to this workshop. We will be using them in an experiential exercise.
