Musical Pathways to Creative Expression: The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music
Saturday, May. 13, 2017 – Saturday, May. 13, 2017
09:00 AM – 01:00 PM
Discover a form of self-exploration that uses classical music to facilitate a connection with inner resources and creativity. Rooted in a Jungian perspective, The Bonny Method allows for understanding and releasing impediments to creative expression. After a brief historical and philosophical overview of the method, we will move through the four stages of a GIM session: setting an intention, relaxing the body and focusing the mind, traveling on an inner journey evoked by selections of inspired classical music, and integrating the experience through drawing and discussion. No musical or artistic experience is necessary to participate. Please dress comfortably and bring a pen, journal, eyeshade, pillow, and blanket.
