Event description

Description

This program focuses on the metaphorical qualities of the human psyche. The emphasis on metaphor in analytic therapy is one aspect which distinguishes it from other forms of therapy. Often we think of myths, fairytales, religious motifs, and alchemical themes primarily as systems of symbolic material and as representations of the collective unconscious but at the most basic level they function as metaphors. However, metaphors are not only associated with manifestations of the collective unconscious; they also manifest, and are utilized constantly, consciously and unconsciously, in everyday life and language. Metaphor is the process which allows music, art, poetry, or film to move us. It is also the process which brings imagination alive.

In the morning presentation we will have an introduction to Metaphor, Definitions, Domains of Metaphor (Art, Soma, Trauma, Literature, Dance, Poetry, Action, Film), the Neuroscience of Metaphor, Metaphor of Reverie and Imagination.

In the afternoon presentation we will discuss the neuroscience of imagination, cultivating the Imagination, common entries to metaphorical work with patients, recognizing the metaphor of hidden communication, and exercises in metaphorical play.
