Hi folks, Next Saturday, April 14th, I’m doing an experiential class at Book Passage in Corte Madera and I’d love to see you there! Here’s the info and link to register:
The Power of Metaphor to Unlock Creative Genius
Saturday April 14th. 10 am – 1 pm PST
Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd. Corte Madera
Metaphor takes us ‘under the surface’ of our everyday consciousness, into a Deep Creative realm that lies beyond the linear mind. In this experiential class you will directly tap into your own metaphoric imagery and symbolic language.
Metaphor is the basis of our cognitive system, which means that all of us view the world through a metaphoric lens. In this class, you will discover the ways in which metaphor is currently influencing how you see the world, your life, and your creative work. And, you will also discover the metaphoric imagery that the Deep Creative wishes to express through you.
You don’t need to be a writer to benefit from this class. Artists, teachers, organizational leaders, coaches, therapists, and others who wish to expand their ways of learning and knowing are welcome.
I hope to see you there!
Acts of genius or dramatic breakthroughs can only affect the world order when they’re joined by a powerful metaphor. Indeed, establishing the metaphor itself is the act of genius and entry into new areas of knowledge is its consequence.
