Held via Zoom
Sheri Reda, MA, MAR, MLIS
CEUs: 2

*Limited to 16 participants. 

Jung explored ways in which metaphors allow the psyche to express significant personal experiences. Later studies suggest that metaphoric expressions connect us with unconscious or preconscious wisdom. This experiential workshop offers an opportunity to identify and use metaphor in poetry in order to increase self-understanding. Participants will have an opportunity to write their own extended metaphors as poetry in order to connect with their inner knowledge.
