IMAGINAL WORK

 

The imaginal realm is a realm of the psyche in which consciousness is experienced as imaginal forms. Imaginal forms are symbolic in nature and depict archetypal themes. Such forms can occur as actual symbols, various beings (deities, animals, persons, etc.), various physical objects, various moods, etc.  The imaginal realm is considered to be ‘real’ in that the experience of it is an experience of consciousness, not merely a representation of consciousness. It is also considered ‘real’ in that it’s symbols have meaning and importance beyond the intellectual interpretation of them. Imaginal work involves bringing conscious attention to the imaginal experience for the purposes of awakening, healing, growth, and performance enhancement.
