Imaginalia’s reference lists make frequent mention of Robert Johnson’s Inner Work, and with good reason. This clear, honest introduction to active imagination presents a collection of useful imaginal tools intended to help you feel comfortable as you begin your own practice.

Included in Inner Work are Johnson’s suggested approaches to the unconscious, dreams, and dialogical active imagination. He emphasizes a commitment to the principle of psychic reality, the application of ethics in imaginal work, and the importance of giving concrete form to our imaginal learning.

Perfect for beginners in active imagination, intermediate practitioners will also benefit from reading and re-reading Inner Work as a means to refresh and to deepen their practices.
