Psychotherapy: Why some people have abandoned it, more from Cliff Bostock:
So, in soulwork, our task is to imagine our way to truth, our calling in the world. The work does not require artistry, only the willingness to engage in the imaginal. The psyche naturally communicates metaphorically and in images (thus the work is often called “psychopoetics”). The imagination places us in the realm of “the invisibles,” to use Hillman’s term, or in mundus imaginalis, to use Henry Corbin’s term. This is the place where our destiny reveals itself — between the literal and the wholly imaginary. In this place, so unfamiliar to most people in our society — and even scorned by much psychology — life speaks clearly to us through the autonomous voice of personified soul.
