Creative Pilgrimages: Imaging the Path from Heart to Wholeness

College of New Rochelle
29 Castle Pl, New Rochelle, NY 10805
Graduate Program in Art Therapy/Counseling, Co-Host

Evie Lindemann, LMFT, ATR-BC, ATCS

A pilgrimage is a journey of some sort, typically in search of spiritual significance. In this 6-hour master class, participants will experience a metaphorical pilgrimage into self facilitated by somatic, visual, and poetic methods for accessing deeper states of flow. By first translating those experiences into imagery-based art work created in three phases of creative pilgrimage, we will then move into the creation of a three-dimensional sacred space. Using archetypal active imagination techniques, this sacred space will be explored and articulated. This technique, which can be used in different variations, and over a period of sessions, can be used with a range of adult populations in both clinical and wellness settings. Participants need not have any prior pilgrimage experiences to benefit.

Alchemy and the Expressive Arts Therapies: A Multimodal Experiential Journey
Wollman Hall - Thursday 
The New School, 65 West 11th Street, 10011 
Creative Arts and Health Program, Co-Host

Claudia Bader, MPS, ATR-BC, NCPsyA, LCAT, LP 

The alchemical transmutation of lead into gold is a metaphor for the refinement and evolution of the psyche, the process that Jung referred to as individuation. In this 6-hour master class, we will review the history, process, and symbolism of alchemy as it was reintroduced by Jung into modern consciousness, focusing on its relevance to the practice of counseling and psychotherapy. Participants will explore visualization, energy exercises, film, music, art making, and case studies to better understand the individuation process, and how the seven alchemical stages can be applied in clinical treatment with clients of varied ages and circumstances.

Jungian psychology and aesthetics offer a fertile ground for creative arts therapists, for therapists interested in the arts, as well as artists fascinated by the healing power of creativity and imagination. In this daylong symposium, Jungian analysts and art therapists will discuss their work as it relates to Jungian psychology, with an emphasis on making it relevant to clinical work with clients in the expressive therapies. These speakers and topics have been selected to appeal to those new to Jungian ideas as well as those with more advanced training. Although primarily didactic, the day will include some hands-on exercises and small group discussions during which participants will be encouraged to identify how they can incorporate the concepts presented into their daily work in clinical, educational, and community settings.

Re-Storying the Many Dimensions of Psyche: An Ecology of Being 

Kellen Auditorium and room M 101
The New School, 66 5th Avenue/2 West 13th Street, 10011
Creative Arts and Health Program, Co-Host

Mary Reynolds Thompson, CPCC, CAPF, CJF
Kate Thompson, MA, CJT

What happens when two distinct models of self and psyche—the existential and the ecological—converge How does this confluence affect our understanding and clinical application of the psychology of self? Using expressive writing techniques, participants will link these separate approaches and create a powerful spiral model to re­story and restore lost aspects of the self.  The confluence of these approaches offers an extraordinary look into the human­nature relationship as well as offering a profound opportunity to explore the deeper meaning of these stories. During the day participants will write their way through the spiral model and learn ways to immediately apply their newfound knowledge and tools with their clients.

Kellogg's Great Round of Mandala: Pathways to Wholeness

Room U204, University Center - Saturday
The New School, 63 Fifth Avenue, 10003

Creative Arts and Health Program, Co-Host

Jordan S. Potash, PhD, ATR-BC, REAT, LCAT

Jungian psychology maintains a core belief that human beings are in a continuous process of development. This ongoing creative cycle is greatly aided by the discovery of archetypes that speak to common human experiences. In his essay “The Stages of Life,” Carl Jung wrote, “It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” Creative and expressive arts processes when viewed through an archetypal framework invite us to identify patterns that connect our personal experience to the universal human condition. The archetype of the mandala (Sanskrit for “circle”) will be introduced and viewed through 13 states of consciousness articulated in Joan Kellogg’s theory “The Archetypal Stages of the Great Round of Mandala."

9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Image and Imagination in Expressive Arts Therapies

Executive Conference Center
1601 Broadway (enter on 48th Street)

Linney Wix, PhD, ATR-BC

In working with images, an imaginal approach that ‘particularizes’ the image differs from a Jungian approach, which focuses on symbolic content. Working imaginally asks for a poetic sensibility, which is not necessarily logical or literal. The tenet central to imaginal work is one of “sticking to the image.” Using ideas and practices developed by various archetypal thinkers and practitioners, the workshop will offer opportunities to deepen the hearing and seeing of images. When listening to a literal event with an ear toward metaphor, the event may take on meaning that might otherwise go unnoticed. Hearing literal occurrences poetically involves slowing down the listening in order to consider what the imagination might offer. Using practices central to the workshop in therapy sessions, it is possible to hear from images, dreams, and stories clients bring to therapy. Hillman (1978) developed a set of “gadgets” to assist in hearing and seeing images with precision. We will play with those to access metaphor and listen for poetic insight.

The Hero's Journey in Expressive Writing & Art


Starr Foundation Hall, University Center- Sunday
The New School, 63 Fifth Avenue, 10003
Creative Arts and Health Program, Co-Host

Michelle L. Dean, MA, ATR-BC, CGP, LPC

The Hero’s Journey describes the typical adventure of the archetype of the Hero, which appears in drama, storytelling, myth, religious ritual, and psychological development. This narrative offers us a unique means of cultivating the ability to understand the interplay of symbolic elements within a given context. As such it is an ideal framework for contemplating the process of developing awareness necessary to be truly engaged in psychological work. The didactic portion of the program explores the progression of the Hero through his or her quest, initiation, obstacles, and the outcome and includes examples from film and literature. The experiential component features image making through expressive writing and art with the option of sharing. All levels of art and writing experience are welcome. Bring a pen, paper, and your unique presence.

Jungian Art Therapy: Tissue Paper Collage

Executive Conference Center
1601 Broadway (enter on 48th Street)

Sondra Geller, MA, ATR, LPC, LCPAT

Sondra Geller, a senior Jungian Analyst and an art therapist of 40 years, leads participants through a 3-hour experiential workshop that honors the late Dr. Edith Wallace, Jungian Analyst, award winning artist, poet, and mystic. Prompts will follow Wallace’s lead and advice to let go of the known to make room for engagement with the intuitive. Playfully and creatively using brilliantly colored tissue paper to make collages, Geller and participants will engage with the psyche. Participants will learn how to look deeply into the expressive collages assembled with their own hands. Under the watchful eyes of the facilitator, participants will discover how to see images hidden within the random shapes and colors and will learn how to use Jung’s process of active imagination to enter into dialogue with psyche. What do you see?, What have you come to tell me?, and other questions will be asked of the images. As Jung must be experienced to be understood, this method makes 'believers' and 'converts' as well as establishes a platform for innovative and highly effective counseling and psychotherapy with diverse clientele. Counselors and psychotherapists at all levels of training are welcome.

Zen, Sand & Symbols: Therapist/Client Journeys of Discovery


Executive Conference Center
1601 Broadway (enter on 48th Street)

Judith Kneen, LICSW

Rumi therapeutic wisdom and spiritual wisdom are intertwined. Both help bring us into intimacy with inner experience and self discovery. This 3-hour workshop will use sand, symbols and archetypal metaphors as tools for mindful play to enhance intra- and interpersonal connection and an awareness of our authentic self. Witnessing from the “inside out”, participants will examine therapeutic journeys in Jungian sand and symbolic world play where clients of all ages unfold their unlived life as the therapist offers the “zen of unconditional regard”. Together we will explore how these client stories mirror our own inner experiences using sand, symbols (bring your favorites from home!) and clay sculpey creations. We will end with a Homecoming Meditation. No prerequisites. All welcome!

What is Inner Voice Dialogue?

Executive Conference Center
1601 Broadway (enter on 48th Street)

Bridgit Dengel Gaspard, LCSW

Voice Dialogue is a powerfully effective technique that embraces your inner and outer diversity. Developed by the Drs. Stone, the premise is that our personality consists of an assortment of Inner Selves which is a natural result of growing up. Over time caretakers reinforce some parts of ourselves (which become primary) and reject other parts (which become disowned). The core of Voice Dialogue is the experience of meeting parts of ourselves in a structured way. This immersive, experiential workshop includes a facilitation demonstration, lecture, and hands-on individual and group exercises leading you to identify your inner family–--as well as your clients’. You will facilitate and be facilitated. We dance with some Inner Selves and draw with others! At the end of the day you leave with takehome worksheets for yourself (and your clients) as well as the ability to incorporate tenets of Voice Dialogue into your practice immediately. This fun, engaging chock-full day will enhance your overall creativity and initiate new ways to help clients who continually struggle with competing aspects of themselves.
