Workshop Details 

Believe it or not, this question about where you are right now and where you are going is not so difficult to answer if you are willing to go beneath the surface to find out “what you know but haven’t told yourself”. The easiest way to do this is by getting an image that is a metaphor for “who you are or what you need to know at this moment in your life”, and then exploring it and discovering what your best next step can be. This is what this experiential Imagework training course can help you to do, first for yourself, and then for clients, colleagues or friends.

The image that emerges in the Image as Life Metaphor exercise may be astounding, or funny, or indeed, very serious, but it is always enlightening. Often its source is in the past, and needs to be transformed in the light of the present moment. It’s an all-purpose Imagework exercise because you can also use it to get a map of a specific problem–at work, at home, or in relationships.

You’ll find yourself using it, as I do, as a go-to exercise for yourself and for clients whenever you need a bit of help to understand what’s happening below the surface, and how one can move beyond it. It’s also one of my most popular exercises, and one that clients and students have incorporated into their lives.

If you are a practitioner, you will also find this short training course an invaluable introduction to actually using transformational imagery in your life and in your profession.

If you’ve never experienced the power of the Image as Life Metaphor, I wish you a wonderful journey. And if you have felt its power in the past, you will know that each time you use it, you get a different image and a new raft of insights.  Don’t miss this timely course.
