Teacher: Leonard George

What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Defining the imagination is like grabbing the wind. Imagining is ambiguous, ambivalent, creative and subversive. Controlling others’ imaginations has long been a means of oppression; but fresh imaginings can bring liberation and healing. And imagination has featured since time immemorial in the quest for the sacred.


In this event we will ponder ideas about imagination through the ages, study forms of imaginative activity in the quest and introduce methods for tapping the potentials of the esoteric imagination.

Esoteric pursuits like hermetism, theurgy, alchemy, magic and kabbalah have always been entwined with imagination.

In this session we will unlock a tool-kit of ideas and means for the study of imagination. We will also reflect on the history of conceptions of imagination and their roles in suppressing and supporting esoteric views.


Note: 


This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for 90 days.
