Modern Day Alchemy: Creativity & Transformation
Felicia Matto-Shepard, LMFT, Jungian Analyst
Friday, May 6th, 2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am
At first look, Alchemy is a strange and mysterious language filled with indecipherable prose and imagery. But if we look more closely, we discover Alchemy conceals methods, images and metaphors for evolving oneself psychologically. Carl Jung spent the last part of his life exploring this complex and beautiful world, recognizing its psychological value.
This presentation will take the listener through a landscape of imagery and contemplation, reflecting on the riches that can emerge when imagery is incorporated into psychological thinking. Such symbols often show up in sessions as metaphors as clients reach for ways to describe their inner experiences. Developing a curious attitude and engaging these symbols and metaphors through creative practices can enrichment the work, bringing a more soulful and pondering, less directive attitude to the work.
Felicia Matto-Shepard, LMFT, is a Jungian Analyst and artist who will share her experiences of art making in psychological transformation, based on material from her personal process, as well as those of her students and patients. Above artwork found here. Learning Objectives
