Margaret Atwood writes that story originates in the dark, in the unconscious. How do we access our unconscious? How can our narratives contribute to a rise in consciousness, our own and the world’s? In this workshop, we’ll explore journaling, active imagination, and dreamwork as modes for discovering the narratives of our unconscious, and we’ll see how to shape them into polished stories—fictional and nonfictional—that serve our individual and collective consciousness.
Susan Tiberghien has been teaching creative writing for over 25 years, for the International Women’s Writing Guild, at C.G. Jung Societies, and at writers’ centers and conferences in the U.S. and Europe. She is the author of four memoirs—Looking for Gold: A Year in Jungian Analysis, Circling to the Center: An Invitation to Silent Prayer, Side by Side: Writing Your Love Story, and Footsteps: In Love with a Frenchman—and the acclaimed writing book One Year to a Writing Life: Twelve Lessons to Deepen Every Writer’s Art and Craft. Her latest book is Writing Toward Wholeness: Lessons Inspired by C.G. Jung (Chiron Publications, 2018). An active member of PEN International, Susan founded and, for twenty-five years, directed the Geneva Writers’ Group (250 English-language writers). She recently did an online course, “Journaling to the Soul,” for the Jung Society of Washington, DC. Married, with six adult children, sixteen grandchildren, and her first great-grandchild, Susan lives in Geneva, Switzerland, where she takes heart in its international call for peace and justice.

A Look at the Writer's Life from the Inside Out
As writers, we find inspiration and motivation from many sources. We also find distraction and delay. Take eight weeks to look at your writing aspirations from the inside out and learn how your own creative brain works and which expectations rule your progress. Jump-start your dreams, refine your goals, and gain tools to take the actions you need to make real progress as you head into a new year. Bring a project to work on or begin something new. Together, we’ll create writing magic!
