Our time together will include the following practices with trees: retrieval of memory, shared physiology, personal guided imagery, poetry and stories, and learning to cleanse our energy with a fallen branch. The focus will be on expanding and deepening our relationship with trees as we enter into new territories of awareness and practice. Breathing, gentle movement, and stretches with the trees as our inspirational partners will be a part of the class. Those with all levels of physical ability are invited. Prepare to have time to slow down as you work with the energy of trees!

Breathing Space Studio, 91 Main St. upstairs, Wellsboro, PA

Hello Friends!  I am writing to let you know about an imagery offering.  THIS IS AN EXPERIMENT! I have wanted to do this for a while, and now is the time to begin, and you are the first people I am sharing this with.   I am going to offer a group imagery session at the studio, Monday Sept 29 at 1pm.  This is open to anyone who has sincere interest.  What happens for the future will be determined by what happens on this day. The name of the event is “Mary’s House”. The imagery will be an invitation to receive messages from Mother Mary or her Associates as they come to you in your individual hearts. After the imagery, we will pass the talking stick and share what we have been given. Sharing is always optional and you are welcome to pass the stick along without talking. I will invite you to give me copies of your messages so I can save them, with the thought of possibly compiling the results of this experiment for publication! Of course sharing this is your decision.   This gathering will intend: No pressure, complete freedom, trust in the beautiful portal we all carry within through our gift of ability to call forth an image. I will plan a loose hour . You may need to leave early if you are coming on lunch break and that is understandable. We will meet at the studio, Breathing Space, over Garrisons Mens Shop. We will allow future sessions to evolve as they need to. You can tell a friend, bring a friend.  If I don’t have enough chairs you can sit on the floor or bring a lawn chair just in case! I will leave a donation box out. There will be no required fee. If you would like to join me in this experiment, please come on Monday Sept. 29 at 1 pm.!   May you bloom and grow, with love, Jenny



An Imagery Workshop: Getting to know your Essential Totems

Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, Cassadaga, Florida

We share the Earth with animals. They can teach us about our "medicine"; the gifts we carry and can share with others, our place in the world, and who we are. We will work with the totems through heart centered imagery...asking them what they have to teach us, to show us, and to tell us. Common insights gained through imagery include but are not limited to: Understanding, Spiritual connection, and Healing. Imagery grants us the opportunity for communication with the invisible world. The workshop is informal, experiential, and sharing is always optional. The meeting with a totem animal is a great gift to give yourself, a deep nourishment from your inner world and your Creator.

Imagery for Healing: Imagery for Healers

Lily Dale Assembly, Lyceum Building by playground, Lily Dale, NY

The great healers have told us that we, too, can heal. In our busy world, it can be a challenge to quiet and open the mind to the deep medicine of our heart, soul, and spirit. Imagery gives us a way to tap into the images that can deepen and facilitate healing. Come prepared to invite the images that can accompany and quicken healing to come forth from the sacred sub-conscious, allowing you to work with them in mind and body. Explore your heart as a doorway for spiritual healing encounter. During this workshop, we will invite and dialog with our own images of healing as well as learn how we can help others to explore the healing images that come to them. Bring an eyebag or pillows if you would like to use them for your inner journeys.

Presenter Jenny Garrison is a Registered Nurse with certifications from The Academy For Guided Imagery and The International Institute for Visualization Research as a student of Eligio S. Gallegos.

This workshop is experiential and informal. No previous experience with imagery is needed. The basics will be taught. Sharing is optional.
