November Imagery Weekend

Click here to open a booking form for the weekend. The cost will be $240 (or $295 after 31 October).

The next imagery event will be a weekend at Camp Bornhoffen from 9-11 November 2012. Arrival will be at 5pm Friday with dinner and an opening circle that evening. We will have workshops on Saturday and on Sunday morning. Like the Mini-Festival last year, individuals can nominate to run workshops and we will have a flexible timetable to accommodate our needs over the weekend. The plan is to have lots of free time to walk and talk as well as having workshop opportunities.

Contact me if you would like to run a workshop. This is an opportunity to trial an idea for a workshop as long as it is relevant to imagery in its many shapes and is experiential rather than lecture style. 

The main hall, the pavillion and the back room will be available as workshop areas.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Another Great Festival

We had another great gathering of people interested in inner growth through various forms of imagery. Here is a picture of participants deeply absorbed in the process of doing calligraphy. Either that or Alice put something in the tea!Calligraphy Workshop. Pic by Mark Smith Each festival has a different energy. This year, it seemed to me that the workshops of Alice and of Purdie and Kerrie added dimensions that feel close to the spirit of what we are trying to do. That is to find ways of lightly, gently and respectfully entering into the deeper apects of who we are as human beings.

The imagery workshops, the sound workshop and Debra's aboriginal spirituality workshop all seemed to flow easily into one another. The workshops provided complementary experiences so that the whole weekend felt more like one unified workshop.Free Entertainment

Needless to say, there was also time for us to "act the maggot" at our evening of expression. Lots of fun and old-fashioned self-entertainment.

13 to 15 April 2012 Festival Weekend: A Journey In Sound

The Australian Sound Institute is a recently-formed collaboration of musicians promoting deep inner work through music. I attended their workshop, "Singing The Soul Back Home" earlier this year and I was inspired to invite them to offer a workshop at this festival. Two members of the group, Kerrie and Purdie will present at our Imagery Festival. When I first enquired of Kerrie Ferguson about their work, she wrote:

Australian Sound InstituteThe Australian Sound Institute has been formed nine months ago by Chad Beckett, Purdie Wood, Cindy Wessling and myself. Here is a brief bio of the four of us: Chad and Cindy completed a two year Sound Healing training in Melbourne in 2009. Chad is also an experienced group facilitator running mens groups and acting workshops. Purdie has gained her experience in South America where she has trained in indigenous healing using intuitive sound medicine. She ahs also recently returned form the U.S.A. where she trained in soul retrieval with Sandra Ingerman. I have previously run Singing The Soul Back Home workshops in Sydney for three years before moving up here. I received my training and inspiration from attending the inaugural International Sound Healing Conference in Santa Fe in 2007 working with such sound healing pioneers as Jill Purce, Jonathan Goldman and Don Campbell.
What the four of us bring to our workshops, along with our training, is our passionate knowing and experience of sound as a profound medium for healing. (Kerrie Ferguson)

I have long been interested in the idea of inner work through music. Attending this workshop was the first time I had an opportunity to work in this way. This work will definitely appeal to anyone at the Highly Sensitive Person end of the human spectrum.

Feedback from an earlier workshop included this comment (coincidently by a fellow Deep Imagery enthusiast!):

"I loved Singing the Soul Back Home. The workshop was beautifully crafted and presented with real respect for the participants - it was an honour to be there. Using the voice in such an intuitive way was for me a very intimate and powerful experience. I felt that it went straight into my body - bypassing thought and I sensed healing at a deep level .......  There was a deep sense of connection to self and my experience was profound powerful and delightful!   Thank You"
