“Imaginal Remembering: Finding the Crossroads of a Resilient Self and a Hopeful Imagination”
Based on the profound wisdom of DreamTending©, Imaginal Remembering is a psychological journey that invites our memories, like dream figures, to be witnessed as wise and meaningful images of the soul. When we free memories from the notion they are fixed representations of the past and engage with them as lively and responsive psychic images, we find they bring gifts of personal transformation, deep healing, and resplendent creativity.
