Autumn...Fall. Really the perfect word for this season and the many  invitations to FALL - to let go, that this time of year naturally brings. It seems to me we are in a major cycle of death and endings. That we are all having our feet held to the fire in some way. Being required to both let go and hold on to what matters. The words I keep hearing are to: build our capacity to stay present. To stay awake to what is happening in our personal heart, in our communities, country and the global community. Right now there are fires and power outages, there are riots and death, there are political upheavals in multiple…

Active Imagination and the Transcendent Functi...

See Part 1 here. We tend to be binary creatures. Do we like “this” or “that”? Is “this” the safest way or is “that”? Our brains learn through binary processes, and our ego tends to process this way as well. Polarity. Are we included or excluded, cool or a dork, healthy or ill? On and on it goes.

Active Imagination – “ …a natural process, a manifestation of the energy that springs from the tension of opposites, and it consists in a series of fantasy-occurrences which appear spontaneously…

The Imaginal, The Body & The Butterfly

Shannon Simonelli

Let's first define the Imaginal: Henry Corbin post dated Carl Jung, and coined the term Imaginal from his work as an interpreter of Islamic thought and poetry. Corbin describes the Imaginal Realm (mundus imaginalis) as holding images, stories, dream figures, embodied imagery and movements that come to us from some dimension beyond our rational intellectual perspective. (1) Client art used with permission. Our psyche or Soul has an active voice in the Imaginal Realm. Inviting our unique life through the images and movements born from our inner life and the Imaginal Realm. As we practice opening to the direct experience of Imaginal figures, a new life begins to breath within us, we are revived, restored, made…
