Invigorating Our Imagination: Healing Spirit Journeys with David Edward
January 21, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
At this Tuesday’s Journey Circle we will be invigorating our imagination. Imagination has been called the language of the unconscious, and sadly our ability to speak this language is seriously hindered in the age of digital distraction.
Often we take it for granted, but our divine ability to manifest psychic images serves as our own personal portal to the world of spirit; gateway of the anima, that envoy to the soul. In the practice of shamanic journeying, people often wonder – am I making it all up? I see it as a spontaneous co-creation between the soul and the Great Spirit of Love, for which imagination is the vehicle. Evolution, or soul-making, is the intent.
Beyond mere words, the dimension of image and symbol allows for a more profound and fundamental communication with what lies behind the material world. Let’s journey there together, deepening our experience of being alive in this place and time; enriching our divine souls.
With the guidance and support of our ancestors who have transcended this realm, and our animal, plant and other helping spirits of nature, we will embark on journeys through the enchanted world of spirit with prayer, drumming, and active imagination. Once there, we will contend with the archetypal forces that influence our waking lives and find hope and inspiration to help fulfill our life-purpose.
All are welcome. No drum journeying experience is necessary.
Donations of $7-$20 are requested.
David Edward Oliver is your host. David is a spiritual practitioner and educator specializing in Ecopsychology, Jungian Psychology, and Shamanic Healing. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Prescott College and is an ordained minister through Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church in Tucson, AZ. He has lectured at high schools, hosts public workshops, and offers individual sessions designed to promote healing through nature and ancient wisdom.
Using my training as an animist minister and in the realm of Jungian psychology, I will equip you for an experience of the collective unconscious, followed by a discussion to help interpret and amplify the communications from non-ordinary reality. When approached with reverence, the great loving intelligence that animates all things leads us to healing, no matter how complex our struggles. It is my honor to hold space and facilitate this experience.
