An introduction to Bill Pearlman’s creative action therapy, Archetypal Drama. The introductory session will cover some of the basic concepts of the work as well as sample presentations of how archetypal dialogue works in this form of dramatic interaction.
Some of the topics to be discussed during this intro talk are:
- The work of C.G. Jung and James Hillman
- The uses of active imagination in soulful interactions.
- The relationship between archetypal drama and the theater experiments of innovators such as Jerzy Grotowski, Peter Brook and what depth psychology and certain kinds of acting have in common.

These workshops will explore a broad range of material including Archetypal Drama and Inner work, Relationship and Soul, The Festive Wellsprings of Archetypal Drama, and Dream and Psyche.
