Winter Retreat, EarthSpirit Centre, near Glastonbury

Dates: February 2-5 2023. Details to be confirmed.

Our Imagework community celebrates each year by coming together for a retreat and a revisioning, facilitated by Dina Glouberman. This year it will be in February at the EarthSpirit Centre.  It is a great opportunity to step back and revision your life in the company of like-minded people. If you have done any Imagework at all, do feel yourself welcome.

Imagination and Transformation, Tivoli Institute, Co. Dublin

Dates: to be confirmed. This is an online course.

The most effective time for transformation and new beginnings is the moment when the winds of change are already blowing in one’s life. Burnout, stress, crisis, confusion, loss, illness, major change: these are all words that let you know that you need to stop, orient yourself and listen to your inner wisdom before you can take your next step. If you are a therapist, counsellor or consultant, this is the time in your client’s lives that they turn to you for help and are most open to receive it.

This workshop focuses on the three-stage process of transformation: catalyst, turning point, and new beginning. We will be working with imagery at each point to go below everyday thinking and old assumptions to your own unique view of reality.

Using imagery has the power to deepen and speed up any learning, healing, problem solving, or creative process. You will learn to tap into your “genius imagination,” or “radical imagination” to get a vivid and accurate snapshot view of where you are right now, what has led up to it, and what is possible—as well as to support you to say Yes and map out steps to a new future. In so doing, you will also gain the tools to continue this learning in everyday life or to work more effectively with clients.

This workshop is suitable for people seeking life change, as well as for therapists, counsellors or consultants seeking professional development. It can offer clarity and confidence in your own life, as well as a powerful way to facilitate change in others. It has the added bonus that clients can take these methods into their own lives to continue their own transformation, and so can you.

CPD certificates are available. Dina Glouberman’s book, “You are what you imagine: Three steps to a new beginning using imagework” as well as the MP3 download of all the exercises (www.dinaglouberman.com/shop/) can serve as a text and further training for the workshop.

Skyros Centre: Visioning Your New Life

Dates: Saturday 18 June-Friday 1 July, 2022

Are the winds of change blowing in your life? What are they whispering? Are you willing to listen? If so, this course is for you.

You may be feeling burnt out, stressed, or stuck. Or you may be confronting crisis or change. Either way, such times demand that you step forward into a bigger picture of who you are and where you are going.

An interesting spiritual tradition says that when we are living our everyday lives in an everyday way, the soul just rests or even sleeps. But when we are in crisis, or looking for change, or wrestling with something that our ordinary mind doesn’t quite know how to deal with, the soul wakes up. And then life begins to move to a whole new level.

Is this what you’ve been yearning for? If so, you need to stop, listen to your soul’s whispers, look at what reality is telling you, find out where you want to go, and then get to a Yes. 

Saying Yes is a commitment to take whatever is brewing within you and around you into a new behaviour, a new attitude, or a new way of life. An unqualifiedYes sets the next stage into motion, opening you to the intuitions, research, actions, and persistence in the face of difficulties that make it possible to vision and create your new life.

This is what Visioning Your New Life will help you do.

In this course we will be working with imagery and visualisation to:

  • Recognise the catalyst that can start you moving in a new direction
  • Get a vision of the future that would be right for you
  • Say Yes
  • Map out the steps to your new future, and take a leap of faith into a new reality.

This is also a crash course in working with your ‘genius imagination’ so that you can be your own consultant, therapist, and wise guide. The secret is to educate your imagination to bring together the spiritual and the practical – learn to attend to the whisperings of your heart and soul while being grounded in the real world.

Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?

This course is suitable for complete beginners in imagery and visualisation as well as for those who are experienced in using this approach.

Prepare to be surprised. Your images by their very nature don’t always tell you what you expect; rather they will show you what you know deep down inside but haven’t yet told yourself, and they always point the way to transformation.

You will be able to emerge from this course with the clarity and confidence to take your next step in life. You will also have a magic box of tools, indeed a new way of thinking, that you can use to understand, protect, and guide yourself, not just during the workshop but for the rest of your life.

Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?
This course is divided into two parts, but it is best if you can do the whole course.

Week One: The Joy of Burnout

In week one, we will map out the path from where you are back to your authentic self and forward into a new set of choices. You don’t need to be burnt out to take this course, only to recognise that you are at a choice point, and you don’t want to fudge it.

This week will include learning how to:

  • Find a metaphor that gives you a map of where you are in your life right now
  • Discover whatever may have been blocking your way and find a way through
  • Forgive life and yourself for whatever hasn’t gone as you dreamed
  • Learn to listen to the voices of heart and soul and integrate them with your mind
  • Consider what are your choices at this moment and find your best way forward

In other words, at the end of this week, you will have a deep sense of where your true joy lies.

Week Two: New Beginnings

Week Two is about moving through to saying Yes. Saying Yes is a commitment to take whatever is brewing within you and around you into a new behaviour, a new attitude, or a new way of life. An unqualified Yes sets the next stage into motion, opening you to the intuitions, research, actions, and persistence in the face of difficulties that make it possible to vision and create your new life. We will be working with imagery and visualisation to:

  • Recognise the catalyst that can start you moving in a new direction
  • Get a vision of the future that would be right for you
  • Say Yes

Map out the steps to your new future, and take a leap of faith into a new reality.

At the end of this second week, you will have a vision, a plan, and a determination to make it work. More than that, you will have a knowledge of what really matters to you, and how to make sure your life reflects this understanding.

You have changed my life and helped me to have a second chance at living and being happy.‘ Recent course participant

Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?

The Janus Years Programme

Dates: to be decided. Please contact us if you want to be notified about courses.

Facilitators: Dina Glouberman, Ph.D, Stewart Mitchell, MPhil.

The Janus years are the years, often around what is called mid-life but not necessarily, when you have achieved a measure of success or fulfillment in your life, but are beginning to suspect that all is not completely well, and consider that there may be a need to to review the past, understand where you are now,  and revision the future so that it is more in line with the person you have now become.

This course will support you to negotiate the Janus Years more comfortably, productively, and wisely and to take charge of your life in a new way. It will offer you skills in imagery and visualisation, bodywork, health management, and voice work to take home with you into your life as well as a new map of the territory of your life.

The programme which includes one day sessions, weekends, and individual consultations is designed to help you to take a cool look at how your life is going and to acknowledge where it is working for you, and where it is not resonating with the whispers of your heart and soul. It’s an opportunity also to use the experience and wisdom you have gained in your life to look back, honour and appreciate what what has brought you to this point, to see where you are now, to vision a future that offers you whatever it is you have been missing, and plan your next steps.

This review and revisioning can apply to any  area of life, including work, family, and other relationships, as well as give you a map of your life situation as a whole and where it is leading.

Continuing participant-only support groups will also be set up.

Further details will be posted here.  Or express your interest on Contact Me, and we will add you to the mailing list.
