"Imagination: Guide or Guard Against Individuation?"
Lecture - Friday, November 3, 2017
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Imagination is not anymore static than fire --it is a conversation that reveals itself in its becoming. This evening explores how imagination operates in our lives.
Some imaginative blazes limit, defensively guarding against awareness of absence/loss/difference/otherness in a kind of haze, where we both know and do not know what is real. Other imaginative blazes enlarge our world and expand consciousness, enabling us to approach and even embrace what is next in our lives. Weaving myth, dreams, and images, we will engage possibilities of how imagination works both for, and against us.
Workshop - Saturday, November 4, 2017
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Writing poetry can be an exploration of unknown capacities in the mind and heart, an emotive, empathic exercise and may leave us stunned. Sometimes if we feel disappointed with a poem, with our effort, it is because the poem falls short of our intentions. But those intentions are often vague and speculative. The poem intends otherwise, and we can only welcome what it is beginning to say as it reveals its muffled mystery.
Bring notepads or laptops if these are more comfortable to write with, a poem you admire, and a photo or image that engages you.
