Presentation: Embodied Intelligence (MQ) is both different and equally as important as Rational Intelligence (IQ) with Robert Bosnak

  • Mitchell Theatre, SMSA 280 Pitt St Sydney, NSW 2000 Australia (map)

Embodied Intelligence (MQ) is distributed all over the body. When riding a bicycle our body knows how to do it. This lecture will demonstrate how embodied intelligence is the interface between imagination and somatic experience.

By taking dreaming, not waking,  as the paradigm of experience we can explore how embodied intelligence (MQ) works and matters, from grasping difficult concepts to painting and acting, or to improving your golf swing or gymnastics performance. Being a combination of lecture and practicum, various directly applicable techniques will be explained.

Santa Barbara based American-Dutch Jungian analyst Robert Bosnak makes his second home in Sydney and is the author of A Little Course in Dreams and Embodiment Creative imagination in Medicine, Art and Travel. He will teach techniques that make it possible for us to stew in a state of multiplicity until we witness emergent phenomena that are entirely fresh and have profound implications for health, therapy and creative endeavors. He pioneered the embodied imagination method which is taught worldwide, is Past-President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams and is Teaching Instructor at the Upstate Medical University of the State University of New York (SUNY)
