In order to have impact in our rapidly changing world, one has to access creative imagination--yet we are constantly hampered by our ingrained habits of consciousness, aka ego. We are in the habit of recreating patterns of response that may have served us in the past but are no longer relevant ways of approaching the world.
Alchemy and dreaming have lots in common. Each dream is an act of genius creating an entire world in a flash. In this course you'll learn from alchemy how to force a crack in routine consciousness so the light of creative genius can enter. You will become more versatile in an ever changing world by allowing creativity from the unknown depths to enter our lives. Your soul will be more elastic and adaptive, bending lightly with the vicissitudes of contemporary life.
Robert Bosnak will teach us how to open up, how to be present to events in a mindset of 'not-knowing' as long as possible so truly original and creative responses can make themselves known to us. He will guide us into an unknown world of alchemical colors to form a background to our existence, like green innocence, black decomposition, the blues, silver reflections, yellow ferment and red dawn. In this way we learn the art of creation and unlock the box that keeps us captive.
As a result of this course you will learn how to:
- Shift perspective (breaking open the fixed patterns of habitual consciousness)
- Diminish the innate fear of true creativity and take away resistances
- Develop 'negative capability' (how to stay with uncertainty)
- Know which attitudes and states give access to fresh intelligence
- Invite a creative force to come into your life dispelling any sense of staleness
Bosnak will provide intimate examples from everyday life garnered over long years of professional psychotherapeutic practice and personal experience. Participants will be invited to present brief vignettes of their lives which will be seen from an alchemical color background leading to scintillating new viewpoints.
Bosnak will explore the colorful alchemy of creative intelligence against a backdrop of some of the great minds of technology, invention and literature gleaned from the biographies of Steve Jobs, Nikola Tesla, and Maya Angelou.
This course consists of 10 webinars.
Participants may read the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and the autobiographies of Nikola Tesla and Maya Angelou to formulate questions about alchemical background features.
