Tapping Your Mind’s Potential: Using Symbols and Imagery to Reach Your Deep Mind
Have you ever had the experience of knowing something, without knowing how you know it? Hunches, intuitions, gut feelings – whatever you call them, we all have many ways of knowing that are not easily accessed through words. Bestselling books like Malcom Gladwell’s Blink and Shankar Vedantam’s The Hidden Brain have explored the science behind this. In this playdate, we’ll take a more practical approach. We’ll explore how to use symbols, images, and art to bring the knowledge and wisdom of the Deep Mind closer to conscious awareness.

Re-Write Your Story, Change Your Life
The narratives we create to describe ourselves and our lives have a profound impact on how our lives unfold.

In our times, as religion and other traditional communal activities wane, we still feel the longing to gather with others to acknowledge, recognize, commemorate, celebrate, and mourn. We will explore the basic elements out of which moving and meaningful ceremony is created, and how to lead such ceremonies with confidence and grace.
