Advanced Morphology | Greek Gods IV will meet each Tuesday from October 25, 2022 – May 19, 2023 | Tuesdays | 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM EDT (US)
At the School of Images® we approach morphology using our bodies as a guide to the Self. In this process, you will learn to see, without judgment and with great respect, how the shape of a body has a unique story to tell. The form of our body can show to us who we truly are, reveal the hidden potential we don’t often see, and inform how to respond to and move harmoniously in the world.
In this course you will learn how myth is embodied in the shapes, line, and forms of the human body and how to recognize these in yourself and the people around you. You will also gain a perspective with useful and practical applications in everyday life.
This course will wrap up the study of the “12 Greek Types” by studying three “ mixed types” – Uranus, Neptune, Pluto – plus one more: the twelfth type which has no name and remains hidden. We will peak into this disappearing type and try to guess at its myth and features.
From this, we will explore how this applies to the living body – starting with the study of hands.
If you have attended a Morphology | 4 Grids workshop, the foundation of this work, the class will be easier to follow. But even if you are new to Morphology you can jump into this class.
Semester 1 | Uranus, Neptune, Pluto | The “Mixed” Greek Types | October 25 – December 13, 2022
Semester 2 | The Hands | January 24 – March 23, 2023 and May 3 – 17, 2023 explores the shapes, coloring, texture, fingers, nails, lines and all that encompasses the form of the human hand.
At the end of this school year you will have much information to begin your exploration and use of morphology to understand your inner truth, guide your own life, and make more informed practical choices. You will gain a deeper understanding of who you are and, just as importantly, who your neighbor is. You will even find out that there are ways to use these combinations of shapes and forms in practical ways to better communicate with others and harness your basic temperament and nature as you move through all aspects of your life.
During the course we will actively engage in many imaginal exercises based on the Saphire® Imagery method as taught by the School of Images.® Short and dynamic exercises will help you explore the form and shape of the body types, and more deeply of the human hand. Together with the conceptual work on morphology, you will have a deeper understanding of how images and forms create and are created by us to manifest and transform our lives.
