How Kissing the Muse Works
Kissing the Muse is an active, creative mindfulness practice that helps you improve any area of focus—work, creativity, family, relationships, health, even your finances—by revealing your personal narrative and empowering you to change it. It uses collage-making, storytelling (narrative therapy), and Jungian psychology to help you discover the themes of your inner narrative and identify areas for improvement. What’s working for or against your “hero’s” purpose? What makes your muse want to sing?
The muse is a mirror of our innate, creative potential. "Kissing the muse" brings us face-to-face, metaphorically, with the blank page or empty canvas of our lives - the untamed, uncharted territory of unlimited possibilities. Whether we’re creating art, love, or our own life’s adventure, embracing our inner muse can help us navigate the process more intentionally, intuitively, playfully, courageously, and gracefully.
No previous art-making or creative writing experience is required. Workshop fee: 10 euros.
Phase 7: Diving Deeper- Lost-in-Limbo Muse
Eventually your journey takes you down into your inmost cave, a metaphorical deep, dark place where you prepare to face your enemy- whatever form your ego takes that represents your greatest challenge. It’s a time of inner conflict as you’re confronted with what you have not been willing to accept in yourself, or reveal. It's a dark, tender place where old fears took root and grew in tangles. Your Lost-in-Limbo Muse meets you here as you descend into a period of voluntary isolation. The silence and space mean there is nowhere to hide; intimacy surrounds you (into me you see). Time passes slowly without distractions. There’s nothing to do but sit with your Self here and allow your false outer shell to break open. Doubts and fears throttle you here, but there’s no turning back now. Your Lost-in-Limbo Muse helps you sift through a maelstrom of emotions: anger, remorse, fear, grief, and regret - anything you’re feeling. She holds you gently with compassion as you contemplate the consequences and magnitude of your life’s past and impending choices. You’re floating without movement and no decisions can be made. Succumb to vulnerability; it's a time for grieving what’s been lost.
