Imaging the Mythical Tale: Approaching Trauma through Creative Writing and the Lens of the Dream Soul

Gina Rochell will discuss her creative writing technique, The Art of Dream Alchemy: Imaging the Mythical Tale, an imaginative psychological modality that perceives trauma through the lens of the dream soul. This alchemical process utilizes the dream image, which connects the personal psyche to the collective psyche. She suggests the dream image is multivalent and mysterious, beholding unknown elements that may be brought to the surface through imaging, a creative writing process that allows us to artistically express the unconscious elements of psyche by writing a mythical story, using the mythological language and perspective of the dream soul, expressed through the mythical voice, image, and psyche.
