Imaginal Psychology: A Distinct Orientation

The Imagination is not a State: it is the Human Existence itself.
– William Blake


Imaginal Psychology is a distinct orientation to the discipline of psychology. This orientation reclaims soul as psychology’s primary concern. The soul expresses itself in images. Care of the soul asks that we pay close attention to the images we inhabit. This orientation to psychology has its roots in the transformative practices that are at the core of many spiritual traditions and creative arts.

In the last one hundred years modern depth psychology has rediscovered these sacred potentials. Imaginal Psychology traces this vein of gold through its ancient and modern manifestations in ways relevant to our contemporary lives, enabling a distinctly postmodern psychology to emerge.

Meridian’s curriculum draws on spiritual traditions, somatic practices, creative arts, mythology, indigenous wisdom, literary and poetic imagination, deep ecology, mystical philosophy, cultural history, and social critique.
