Expanding Imagination through Active Engagement
In this presentation, Dr. Norm Amundson and Andrea Fruhling from Doubleknot. works will be presenting some of the basic tenets of active engagement and exploring ways in which these principles and activities can be utilized to address current needs. Social, economic, and political challenges have increased the level of uncertainty in the world and thus the need for hope and a broader, more positive perspective.
The particular focus of this session will be on imagination and how it can be expanded using various metaphoric strategies. Visual imagery and physical movement are key components of imagination and provide a creative way to externalize problems and shift perspective.
The ideas suggested here will have application in many different settings, they also can be applied in face-to-face and online sessions. There will be an experiential component in this session so come prepared to listen, discuss, and participate.
