Signs, Symbols and Animal Totems with Diane Hardiman, at Chandler’s Ford. £40 to members, £50 to non members on Saturday, September 14th.

September 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Diane Hardiman invites you to discover   

‘Signs, Symbols and Animal Totems’ 

Making the implicit explicit and integrating the creativity of our ancestors into 21st Century therapy 

Symbols are powerful because they are the visible signs of invisible realities 

We are surrounded by signs and symbols all day every day.  Be they sounds, images, gestures. We are so familiar with them that we hardly give them much thought…yet they can offer tremendous insight if we care to perceive beyond the superficial.

The topic is HUGE and in the time we will have, this workshop will give you but a glimpse into the possibilities.  Yet it has the potential to reenergise how you experience the world around you.

This workshop is based on the fascinating BA Hons research dissertation of Justine Haddon entitled Signs Symbols and the Angelic Realm.  Within the workshop Diane will expand on Justine’s research and will incorporate her own ubiquitous spin of Animal Therapy in the form of Animal Totems in place of the Angelic Realm.

You will learn the differences between Signs and Symbols and discover the role of Animal Totems historically and in 21st Century therapy.  You will explore how to apply this learning to both your own life and to your therapeutic work creatively and safely.

Justine will join the session if possible and has happily given Diane permission to use her research for this workshop.
