2015 Training Overview
“We are all born gifted. We are all called to create. We are all called to serve.”
from The Dangerous Old Woman audio work.
In this one-of-a-kind intensive with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, you will learn 'the bones' of, and return to the core nature of the creative force and the creative processes.
For more than four decades as a keeper of the old stories, post-trauma recovery specialist, psychoanalyst and writer, Dr. Estés has completed and offered a massive amount of in-depth creative works to the world, year after year. She is known internatioinally as a seminal thinker in her specialties: cross-cultural, archetypal psychology and ethnic healing modalities in the modern world. Dr. Estés has developed a deep understanding of the many factors that prevent us from fully tapping into our creative selves. Through her insightful teachings and hands-on exercises, she will guide you to find the locks you have placed on your vital energy, and show you how to break out of those chains created by the over-culture.
This year we will take the plunge down past linear logic alone, into the depths to find your great gifts in 'the logic of darkness and descent'--and bring them to Light again, for the first time. Dr. Estés will relate stories about the deep archetype of The Phoenix, its death and resurrection, that speak to the heart of the creative process and your Life Force itself. Dr. Estés says: "We cannot think our way into creativity. That divine fire comes from another world, the place of the mythological and the sacred." Be prepared for five days of inspiration, exploration of your deepest gifts and callings, and practical tools to use for creating 'down to the bones' in all that you undertake to create for the rest of your life.
All participants new to Dr. Estés' trainings will be contacted for an interview by the training coordinator. This is more like a conversation than a qualifying interview. One reason for this is to begin to establish and hold a group focus, so our time together can be deeper and richer.
Dr. Estés will teach the process and direct the in-depth exercises for learners, but cannot review nor endorse individual projects.
This training intensive on Original Voice is not psychotherapy nor a substitute for psychotherapy.
