During unusual times in the outer world, we resource to the voice of our inner nature, the unconscious. C.G. Jung, in personal times of crisis, resourced to contacting his inner images and found new directions in his outer life. In this online workshop, we will work with symbols of nature while contacting the wisdom of the unconscious to find a balancing standpoint. This 4-week series will include guided imagination and concretely painting those images at the comfort of your home. The last class will give us an opportunity to look at the series of images and attempt some interpretations of their meaning. For this class, it will be necessary to purchase coloring material of your choice and paper. (more detailed information after enrollment.)
