My early work in psychology centered around imagery — how images are formed; how they affect people and their relationships; how they can be used in the service of insight, learning or change. I loved studying imagery, writing about it, using it in clinical practice, and designing workshops. As president of the American Association for the Study of Mental Imagery, I gave talks about ways in which the images through which we see our families can guide our expectations, understanding, and behavior. Today, in this short exercise, I explore using imagery to expand ways in which we show love.
What is an image?
Here is an example of an image you can use to explore love:
How can exploring this image show love?
After you engage in this exercise, how do you feel? Is your partner willing to try it? How easy or difficult is it to share your respective experiences?
