THE ART OF DREAM ALCHEMY with Gina Rochell
July 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Sometimes we need a therapeutic brew in a cup to soothe soma and psyche, and other times, we may desire an artistic notion to inspire the body and soul. And still, the combination of the two creates an alchemical potion that deserves to be imaged into a daily practice. For Gina, this practice is “The Art of Dream Alchemy: Imaging the Mythical Tale,” which is a creative writing course that explores the dream soul, mythology, and creativity as image, an expression of psyche: imagination. This course does not focus on dream interpretation or instruct students on traditional creative writing techniques, but rather on the art of writing, using the language of the dream soul, its mythical voice, image, and psyche.
Gina will be reading from her new short story, “The Tales of Albin and Aslaug- A Promise of Devotion: Ceremony of Weeping,” which was recently published in the journal, Immanence, a tale that illuminates this modality of imaging.
Gina teaches “The Art of Dream Alchemy: Imaging the Mythical Tale,” via a new online platform and scheduled workshops. But for now, wouldn’t you love to have breakfast, drinking coffee and tea, while listening to this compelling and haunting tale, imaged from a dream soul and Nordic mythological story?
Gina Rochell developed The Art of Dream Alchemy, an integrative shamanic educational practice that weaves together dream images, mythology, and powerful archetypal energies. As an artist, musician, novelist, depth psychological and archetypal scholar, Gina draws on her deep knowledge base, as well as wisdom of Celtic and Norse traditions. The Art of Dream Alchemy is designed to empower everyone to imagine and create their own healing soulful stories, music, art, and embodied movement, out of the mysteries of the dream image. She is currently writing a novel, based in Irish mythology, and a book of short stories, influenced by Nordic sagas, reflected from dreams and mythological figures. She has a B.A. in Developmental Psychology and Sociology, a M.F.A in Creative Writing, and a M.A. in Depth Psychology. She is the CEO and Founder of The beansidhe alchemist.
