 Since ancient times, imagery and metaphor have been essential parts of healing. Imagery involves all the senses: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory & gustatory and serves as the language of the brain that translates directly into the ways our bodies react. Through recent advances in psychoneuroimmunology, imagery is being rediscovered as an important complementary approach for a host of illnesses. Our images – often not conscious – drive our emotions, which drive our biochemistry. From times of wellbeing to our greatest health challenges, this natural process is ongoing – a process that we can make conscious and use in the service of our personal growth. In her talk, Patricia will present strategies that we can use to harness this creative process for our increased health and happiness.
