This 4-day, online workshop explores Morphology, the study of body form and the practice of observing the body to understand the unique story it tells us. In this workshop we use the lens of the Greek Gods – Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – where you will learn how their myths are embodied in the shapes, lines, 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.

Morphology | Greek Gods IV |  12-15 Sep 2024 

4-day Workshop |  7:00 AM to 12:30 PM ET (US) / 7:00 PM – 12:30 AM HKT (Hong Kong) | Online | in English + Mandarin

SOI’s continuation of the core series Morphology | Greek Gods IV offers the final of four workshops in this cycle covering the twelve Greek Gods, prototypes for the embodiment and personality characteristics connected with these “types.” 

In this 4-day online workshop, Catherine Shainberg,  certified SOI Practitioner and Teacher, will guide you towards understanding three “mixed types” – Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto – plus one more: the twelfth type which has no name and remains hidden.

Catherine Shainberg, Master of Saphire® Imagery, joined by Lucia Dang and Millicent Lai, Saphire® Imagery practitioners, will lead this fascinating online workshop for students practiced in Morphology | Four Grids. This class is open to all qualified students who would like to expand their knowledge of the power of body forms, and discover how they affect our inner and outer experience.

SOI draws upon the ancient Greek tradition of using the 12 Greek Gods as metaphors and stories allowing us to envision their forms and thus experience their prototype forms as embodied within ourselves. We use imaginal techniques and the language of the body to experience the power of imagery and dreaming to unlock creative manifestation and personal transformation.

In this workshop, students will:

• Use dreaming tools and other Saphire® Imagery techniques to experience the forms of the god-types of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

• Discover the unique expression of their three embodiments by asking what it feels like to be inside of them. What does it mean physically, psychologically, mentally and spiritually to be in their specific forms?

• Turn our inner gaze outwards, learning to identify in others the signs of these major prototypes.

By the end of the series you will be able to identify each of these prototypes – Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto – and recognize how they combine to create in each and all of us a unique personality.

Requirements: Please note that in order to take this course, you must have completed Morphology | Four Grids as a prerequisite.

Registrants will receive a Zoom link prior to the first session. The workshop will be led in English and Mandarin, with Cantonese support as needed.

Workshop Fee: $600
