The EI practitioner or dreamworker facilitates the work and guides the dreamer throughout the process.
In a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, through empathic observation and mimicking, the dreamer enters the images and explores them. Slow observation facilitates the ability to enter the dream image along with its associated subjective states.
The craft of Embodied Imagination® is to create an interaction between waking intelligence and the embodied intelligences encountered in the creative imagination of dreaming, memory, and art. In this way, images, feelings and bodily sensations capture the familiar and unfamiliar from dreams. The culmination of the work in a re-organisation of various elements into a complex embodied pattern, expands both awareness and psychological flexibility, develops new neural pathways and allows for something new and profoundly transforming to unfold.
