Meet Jenny Garrison our President-Elect

August 16, 2014
Jenny Garrison

Jenny Garrison

We are happy to present Jenny Garrison, RN as Imagery International’s president-elect.  She has been teaching and practicing imagery since 1991. She is the author of Imagery In You: Mining for Treasure in your Inner World. She is trained by the International Institute for Visualization Research and The Academy For Guided Imagery. Her focus is on the expansion of open-heartedness through imagery as spiritual practice. With a teaching style that is informal and experiential, she welcomes all.

She replied in her gracious acceptance as President-Elect:

Imagery is our business, our organization, the heart of why we are here.
It is slowly rising in public consciousness but has not yet broken the surface. We have an organization in place. That is amazing, and important. We are ready to hold those who work alone and with others to bring consciousness of this potent modality to the surface where it can breathe and grow and become an agent for positive change and benefit for earth and mankind.

We wanted to let you know about a special opportunity featuring Robert Moss, the bestselling author of Dreaming the Soul Back Home and 13 other books on the transformative power of dreams. On Wednesday, July 23rd, Robert will present a FREE teleseminar called “The Power of Active Dreaming: How to Use Your Dreamtime for Healing & Transformation”.

Most of us think of dreams as barely remembered, passive entertainment. But around the world, shamans have pioneered a powerful, valuable, and fascinating way to approach dreaming—seeing it as a time for transformation, healing, and getting guidance from higher levels of reality.
