Imagination, is defined as the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful. It is also referred to, as the faculty or action of forming new ideas, images, or concepts, not present to the senses.
Imagination Explorations is an invitation to actively engage with the imagination.
Let’s close our eyes and listen in, as we are read aloud fantastic stories. Myths, fables, and fairy-tales, are all born from the very pools of the Imaginal Realm.
The character’s and stories, from mythic tales, possess a universal quality, one that is able to spark a deep inner-knowing, within each one of us. Therefore illuminating pieces of ourselves, which may not otherwise step into the light. Each story is carefully selected with this in mind.
We begin our exploratory journey, be getting present to our breath and, by feeling into our body. This practice will keep our minds from wandering. Once we are fully present, participants are invited to relax and to recline. Stories are read aloud while listener’s have their eyes closed.
This allows us to tap into the magical world that exists within our minds.
After each short story, we will have a Socratic, group conversation, to share our individual experiences. Each story will have its own question prompts, to engage the audience in conversation. Not all stories have a happy ending…
Imagination Explorations, is dedicated to children, to the World of Imagination, and most importantly, to the A.D.D. laden generation.
