E.S. Gallegos, II Imagery Person of the Year 2015

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

eligio-stephen-gallegos     

E.S. Gallegos, Phd is awarded Imagery International’s Imagery Person of  the year 2015.

He says,
 “The route of healing was known within each person. I as a therapist or as a psychologist did not need to know how to go about healing a person. In fact I couldn’t. I didn’t know how to heal a person.  But what I recognized was there is something within each one of us that does know where we are injured and how we need to go about our healing and they take care of that remarkably quickly. The real injury that has happened to us, usually in childhood, is that we’ve been taught to doubt our imaginations rather than working to recognize how our imagination fits into our other ways of knowing.”
