THE MANDORLA AS A MODEL FOR INNOVATION

Needless to say, creativity does not just apply to Visual Art, but neither is it solely related to the Arts in general; we constantly hear people talking about “creative types”, but the truth is that creativity happens in all forms of occupation; and so a very important question that must be asked is: what exactly is ‘creativity’?

Championed by the renowned Jungian analyst Robert A. Johnson, the Mandorla is an all-but-forgotten Medieval symbol that represents one of the most fundamental concepts available to a developing understanding of what it is to be creative; though it has been almost completely erased from daily life in the contemporary world, the Mandorla is still an extremely valuable way of looking at what it is to be innovative.

In this workshop, the facilitator will firstly introduce participants to the symbol itself and then guide them through a series of exercises where they will experience in a practical way the truth behind the symbolism and theories of this approach.
