If you have been interested in learning how to facilitate an unscripted deep imagination process, consider taking the workshop this Saturday at JFK University in Berkeley, CA. It is the only prerequisite course to all the other imagery classes. It is also a great review of the foundations for established imagery practitioners. CE units available.
