“We are story. All of us.” But how do we find our stories? In this workshop we first will look at what and where is the story, and at what and where is the imagination. Then how do we access our imagination? C.G. Jung gives us a way which he called active imagination, to actively pursue our images. The way is ancient, from Plato (5th century BCE) to Meister Eckhart (14th century) to Margaret Atwood (20th century) images have opened the door to the inner world, to our creative self. We will practice active imagination to uncover our stories. We will craft them in journal entries, personal essays, short stories, or poems. And we will look at how in sharing them, “we change the world, one story at a time.” There will be handouts with excerpts from contemporary writers and writing exercises. The sessions will build on each other. All are welcome, for one day or the five days! (The two quotes are from Richard Wagamese, Native Canadian novelist, 1955-2017.)
