Vocabularies of Voice with Loren MccRory

May 14, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

$10 – $20

The same stories repeat through time, but we bring ourselves to our writing, each in our own individual voice. Join me in a deep-writing intensive, where we will submerge ourselves for a few hours in an exploration of internal worlds built of words.

How can archetypes serve as a pathway to the deeper self and as a mechanism for defining our personal style? How can the Shadow reveal our struggle to define ourself honestly, to speak from our heart? How does the Dreaming Self provide us with a bridge between realities of the conscious mind of the Psyche and unconscious synchronicities? Carl Jung provided us with a vocabulary to know ourselves, to understand our humanity.

We will utilize images from Jung’s Red Book and excerpts from poems that speak to individuation of the Psyche, we will write fairy tales, poems and stories that reveal the hidden patterns that shape us. We will come together in becoming the hero/ines of our own lives.

A retired professional librarian, Loren is a life-long advocate of developmental bibliotherapy, a form of creative arts therapy that applies reader-response literary theory as a healing modality. Though these days preferring to write poetry, once-upon-a-time Loren wrote a novel: Wet Black Stone for a master’s thesis in English Lit, soon followed by a short, disillusioned stint in the publishing world. Post-early retirement, Loren completed a year-long certificate program in poetry and publishing, resulting in publication of a chapbook of poems available on Amazon. In 2019, Loren had the pleasure of training in the AWA method and this will be her 4th year in a row of facilitating workshops for Write Around the World.
