ImageWork: A Complete Guide to Working
with Transformational Imagery:
The Audios of the Scripts

These audios represent all of the ImageWork scripts in ImageWork (Part Two, pp. 145-310)
Voice: Dr. Dina Glouberman
Recording, engineering and original saxophone music: Adrian Northover

All the audios include a relaxation, the exercise, a counting up, and reflection and are invaluable for anyone wanting to experience and to guide ImageWork exercises. Whether or not you want to use these professionally with clients or group members, it is always necessary to have your own experience of an exercise before you can guide anyone else successfully.

The page number in ImageWork of each script is given next to the audio of that script to enable you to easily move between them.

Because imagery is used for a variety of purposes and by a variety of practitioners, the ‘scripts’ have been divided into three categories, depending on whether the purpose is Healing, Creative, or Transcendent.

Healing Imagination Exercises (Healing scripts 1–12, pp. 173–219) address the resolution and healing of imbalances, problems, conflicts, disharmony or illness on any level of the mind, body, emotion or spirit.

Creative Imagination Exercises (Creative scripts 1–10, pp. 229–261) address visioning the future, engaging the will, following through with life changes, practising a skill, solving problems, and exploring issues that arise in our lives

Transcendent Imagination Exercises (Transcendent scripts 1–10, pp. 275–307) are about connecting to a larger context or a spiritual reality, aligning with one’s purpose, finding the balance of a middle way, healing our relationship with life and death, and reaching acceptance and inner peace.
