What role might dreams serve in the creative process? How might dreams serve as muse, both inspiring and evolving an artist’s work, as well as mirroring the artist’s psyche? Join us for an afternoon with Anna Guerra, a depth psychotherapist with emphasis and training in Jungian psychology. Guerra will discuss the ideas of Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist who developed the technique of Active Imagination that taps into the fountain of creativity beyond our ego’s willful agenda. Additionally, she will assist the audience in an Active Imagination exercise that will shed light on the symbols that arise in dreams and how this imagery can be used in creative endeavors.
Anna Guerra, JD, MA, LPC, is a depth psychotherapist in Houston with emphasis and training in Jungian psychology. She holds degrees in philosophy, law, and clinical psychology. She is a frequent lecturer at The Jung Center and recently taught a two-year extensive introduction to Jung and analytical psychology.
