Laura is a truly gifted teacher. She weaves a rich tapestry of ideas and images together in her talks, and is equally comfortable improvising based on the questions students bring. Her depth of knowledge in Chinese medicine, Jungian archetype, psychology, energy healing, and somatic movement infused me with new ideas that I continue to turn around in my my head and feel in my body. I have tasted only the tiniest sip of the nourishing bone broth for the soul that Laura has to offer. I look forward to continuing to learn more.
Being a relative novice to Jungian teachings, along with the fact I would need to travel an hour each way to attend Laura’s class, I was initially unsure whether The First Journey class was a good idea for me. Any doubt immediately dissolved on day one. Laura is a wise and gifted teacher who pulls everyone in - no matter where you are - and after each class I spent my hour commute home feeling enlightened and inspired with a gift of “understanding” deeper than I have ever felt before. I continue to refer back to class notes, and the valuable body-centered tools Laura provided us, for inspiration, guidance and growth. It all made so much sense! Like putting the pieces of a puzzle together. I am grateful I was led to Laura and her compassionate wisdom. It’s no wonder Laura Lewis Thayer is in demand to lecture and teach at locations around the globe ~ we are SO fortunate to have her in our midst!
I took Laura’s workshop and it opened up new vistas to explore and to experience. Her emphasis on energy dynamics through psyche and body was especially helpful. Our bodily experience of archetypes in their ever intangible and yet powerful effect on us is a challenging topic to teach. I am grateful to Laura for excelling at it—bringing it to our focus of how to stay tuned to our body reaction and how understand its language while meditating on primordial life patterns—archetypes. The experience of Laura’s workshop was deep, moving, inspiring and gratifying.
