You will experience incredible rituals in nature, dances and music linked up to the “Imaginal” World. You will have the greatest experience ever reconnecting with your Soul.
A fulfilling joy inside you, this is your goal!
Being an “Imaginalist” means overcoming your Ego, with the power of Love!
All the greatest men and women in our history were “Imaginalist” whether or not they were aware of it.
The “Imaginalist” is a magician, a poet and a shaman. He is a pure creative Being.
Being an “Imaginalist” and Alchemist is a subtle art, and you can learn how to do it.
The “Imaginal” vision will give you the key for a rebirth to a pure and magical existence.
You will learn how to definitively overcome the most challenging struggles of your life.
The “Imaginal” vision will be your strong tool to keep life flowing, to love, to attain joy and to blossom in new abundance, sharing all this with others.
This is a useful method. It will bring about real change in your life, letting you develop an expanded vision of your true self. In this way, if you have a “vision”, you can make it real.
The “Symbol-Imaginal” method is like a seed. The seeds-images penetrate you, like seeds in the ground, hatching in your deepness and what will arise are new extraordinary worlds, and the energies to reach them.

Living as an “Imaginalist” is easier than you might expect.
You may work on 3 steps:
STEP1. The “Imaginalist” recogn
STEP2. He recognizes and accepts that all the images are “Eidola”, Simulacra and symbols, which are pure Spirit.
STEP3. The “Imaginalist” learns how to perceive the presence of the Spirits, the Gods, the Numens and the forces inside the events, he learns how to talk to them and pacify them.
In our world we ask, who wants to be an artist? who wants to become rich? who wants to become a parent? But, in the “Imaginalist” world all things are created by images. If there is not the image, the experiences of success, richness, and parenthood are simply impossible.
The “Imaginalist”, as a shaman, calms down the ireful and disrupted images. He has a relationship with the images his Soul loves, we can say that he enjoys the God’s favour.
The only way to be loved by the Universe is to have a strong will of Love and love every image.

RETREAT TIMES – HOW THE RETREAT DAYS WORK
The retreat will take place from Wednesday, May 30, 2018 to Tuesday, June 5, 2018. The specific hours are: from 2pm on Wednesday to Noon on Tuesday.
The designated location will be the Titignano’s Castle.
Participant’s enrollment will be on Tuesday, May 30, 2018 at Noon.
Titignano’s Castle was built by Farolfo from Montemarte, in the 937ad. The Montemarte’s family, from France, followed Ludovico II King of France.
Ownership of the ancient building was long disputed between the Guelph Orvieto and the Ghibelline Todi. Later between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it was transformed into a large building with a small village that constitutes its court. In 1830 Prince Don Tommaso di Filippo Corsini of Florence bought it at a candlelit auction from the Papal State which had confiscated it from the Montemarte family.
The current heirs are the Marchesa Eleonora and the Marquis Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta, owners also of the Tenuta di Salviano that together with the Castle of Titignano make up a single farm of two thousand hectares,
From the most recent restructuring of the village, keeping unchanged its architectural features, new rooms and apartments have been created. Each room is equipped with a private bathroom, modern services and furnished in a comfortable and welcoming way.
The place is surrounded by unspoiled nature, nestled in the middle of a forest overlooking the lake of Corbara and consists of a large castle, a charming restaurant and bar, a central square surrounded by small buildings and a small chapel.
The village has now become a retreat facility with all the necessary comforts including a large swimming pool. It is unique and for this reason it is often used for retreats and meditative meetings.
The rooms available in the Titignano’s structure are limited. It is advisable to book the accommodations well in advance.
There will also be an area available for a small number of participants who prefer to sleep in tents.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR – SELENE CALLONI WILLIAMS
Selene Calloni Williams is a writer, traveler and documentary writer. She is the author of numerous books and documentaries about psychology and deep ecology, shamanism, yoga, philosophy and anthropology.
Her training and experiences range from Eastern to Western philisophies. In the East, and in Sri Lanka, Selene studied and practiced Theravada Buddhist meditation for several years. Back in Europe, she studied psychology and obtained a master’s degree in screenwriting from Napier University in Edinburgh.
She then met the famous psychoanalyst James Hillman who initiated her in the alchemical world of deep psychology and imaginal vision.
The possibility of embracing Eastern and Western teachings is very precious because it allows translation of the Eastern message in ways adapted to the reception modalities of the psyche of the Westerners, who undoubtedly have a Western imaginal tradition.
Selene Calloni Williams is the initiator of the “symbol-imaginal method” or “Imaginal approach” and of the Italian-Swiss school of Imaginalists. The Imaginal approach is applied to various techniques and disciplines, within the professions, based on the helping relationship and in the field of personal growth.
For example, Imaginal Mindfulness, Imaginal Psycho-genealogy, Imaginal Constellations, Imaginal Regression, etc. The imaginal approach is characterized by the fact that it does not start from the ego and does not aim to reinforce the structures of the ego, but follows the path of “making soul”, represented by the capacity to dematerialize and depersonalize the real.
Selene Calloni Williams is an international speaker. She has participated in numerous conferences and congresses alongside great personalities such as James Hillman, Raimon Panikkar, Karan Sing. She was called as a keynote speaker at various universities (University of Varese, University of Padua, etc.). But her most obvious resource is certainly creativity, the ability to create new visions and to share them.
