Description

A GENERATIVE WORKSHOP: GATHERING IMAGERY FROM THE INTERNAL WELL

with Holaday Mason

One of Beyond Baroque's favorite poets presents a special one-day workshop at Beyond Baroque!

This workshop is designed to help writers of all stages travel into their internal emotional worlds in order to retrieve imagery from less conscious aspects of the mind & heart. The workshop will involve guided meditations, breath & sound work, and selected readings, all with goal of entering into deeper, less daily terrains of our psyches.

After the meditations, participants will be producing raw material from which they will be able to mine work. We will be sharing the raw material without feedback.

There will also be (time allowing), a period of walking meditation at the end of which participants will again have time to write their impressions. The primary goal is to learn some basic trance & meditative practices that can loosen new material & to generate surprising, novel, profoundly personal imagery & insights which each writer can continue to work with beyond this session.

Mason has a degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. She has been a transpersonal, analytic psychotherapist in private practice since 1993. Her work has been called “ Shaman-analysis” by some, because she respectfully employs both classic Eurocentric methods of uncovering & transforming unconscious material (somskaras) & shadows with older earth based wisdoms & eastern philosophies in the work of deep soul excavation. In addition to her private practice work, she leads focused generative therapeutic/tantric writing workshops that focus on mining the imaginal & inner worlds for information in the combined service of healing ourselves & making art.

She lives in Venice, California.
