The INSTINCTS—A SOURCE of CREATIVE LIVING
LECTURE: Friday, October 22, 2010
In Grimms’ fairy tale “The White Snake” we have a story with layer after layer of meaning. It invites us to explore how attentiveness to the instincts can be a source of creative living, and teaches us how transformation may come about. The story presents the quest for wholeness and the process of deepening spirituality. Key to taking this challenging path is developing an attitude enabling one to listen for and to hear the voice of the spirit, of the unconscious, that is tucked away in our bodies, in our instincts, and in nature. How do we learn this language of the unconscious to help us find our own creativity?
The CREATIVE PROCESS in the TALE of the WHITE SNAKE
WORKSHOP: Saturday, October 23, 2010
The tale of the White Snake will be explored in depth, looking at how the movements of the story speak to each of us about our own psychic growth, our spiritual path, and process of transformation—all of which lead us into the creative process. The workshop will be very interactive, with actual creative experiences with clay, and more throughout the day.
