This is a gentle invitation to the learner for a transformative, hands-on training with a seminal thinker in crosscultural and archetypal psychology, and effective ethnic healing modalities in the modern world. Original Voice® learners will be given many of the same practices Dr. Estés developed to bring her five books, twenty-five original spoken word audio series, and countless paintings into the world.


 

 

OVERVIEW

The intention in creating in-depth Original Voice® trainings is to help directly "untie" in learners their knotted up creative functions; to explain what fear of creating truly is made of (it's not what most might guess); what constitutes success in its many guises;  ways to lay to rest any los diablocitos (little devils); and to calm the ego, and especially to re-bless the soul, so each person can carry through their callings and dedication to creative life.  

Our stories, summonses, and works yet to be completed--or begun--are all within the show of creativity, deep inside the psyche, often imagined and planned for many years, if only one can follow through step by step.

In this new Original Voice® training, Dr. Estés will offer the wisdom from the Cloud of Unknowing, a 14th century book by an anonymous mystic. This work has inspired and guided many artists, teachers, and seekers throughout history. It is a spiritual guide on mystical prayer, teaching the way to suspend thoughts and ego references and mandates, and to allow the courage of one’s Being to take over. Surrendering the grasping desires of the ego for worldly clutter; surrendering one’s mind and Being to the realm of mystical unknowing, one will find the center, the source of all creativity.

Through a series of trance meditations leading a person to the creative center of the psyche, one surrenders expectations of ego and false self, so that one can come into the center and create wildly and beautifully.

Dr. Estés shows us that the Cloud of Unknowing may be a dark place at times, but through creative prayer and trance work, buoyed by courage and the longing of one’s heart, the darkness will be pierced and the creative center of one’s Being illuminated.

This is a gentle invitation to the learner for a transformative, hands-on training with a seminal thinker in crosscultural and archetypal psychology, and effective ethnic healing modalities in the modern world.  Original Voice® learners will be given many of the same practices Dr. Estés developed to bring her five books, twenty-five original spoken word audio series, and countless paintings into the world.

This training intensive in Original Voice® is not psychotherapy nor a substitute for psychotherapy. A brief interview, part of the registration process,  will be required of all new students. Thank you.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • To summon  the highest creative force in your own  psyche, in order to become fully creative without barriers. This is a daily practice.

  • To sturdify present and future plans by learning and setting in place daily methods for meeting the inevitable challenges that come from within and from outside oneself.

  • To know through trance practice what your genius (in Greek, translated as "angel") wants for and from you, and how that fits the greater mind's plan.

  • To know that by not “doing, doing” and instead being, much can be revealed to you and lead you to creative center.

  • How we tune into transmissions and messages of the soul when the parameters and instructions from our old life stop providing satisfactory answers for us.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Those who wish to express themselves in the most authentic way, to avoid being derivative in work, practice, or expression. 

Anyone interested in exploring their creative process; anyone with a project, a work, or a vision that needs a dependable plan or a nudge forward; and all those interested in studying with Dr. Estés, for this is one of her areas of specialization.
