Elizabeth Clark-Stern invites you to explore how symbol-making and imagination can be used to help develop a more intimate relationship with the soul. This magnificent treasure, the "right side" of the brain, is a powerful tool for learning to cope with, work through, and ultimately heal from the traumas in our lives. Elizabeth will combine lecture, exemplary classic literature, and interactive exercises, to open our minds and hearts to the rich country of the imaginal world. In readings from her book, Soul Stories, Elizabeth will illustrate how the process of transforming your own story into archetypal symbols can provide the "royal road" to healing and to the divine. She will include Jung's concept of Active Imagination, and explore how his concept can be expanded to incorporate a daily practice of Imaginal Meditation.|

After the September 14th Friday lecture 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm, Seattle Jungian analyst Ken Kimmel will join Elizabeth to provide his own insights about myth, story, imagination, and interview the author about her own writing process and healing the soul.
