What will I experience in a GIM
At times the symbolism and
metaphor of the imagery is
obvious and little
interpretation is needed.
Other times, it is abstract
and may feel confusing. In
addition to discussion,
Dalena may suggest
techniques from dream
work. Some GIM sessions
may yield a new
understanding of yourself,
another, or a situation (past
or present). Some GIM
sessions may provide you
with a road map of the
steps to take to resolve or
cope with a particular issue.
Other GIM sessions will be
transformative in and of
engaging with the imagery,
struggling with obstacles,
release/resolution in the
imagery, you experience a
and/or physical shift in
After a brief discussion, the you form an intention/goal for the session.
The Dalena acting as a guide gives you instructions for a short relaxation
and focusing period. The music then begins, and you are allowed to
image freely to the music. Dalena will assist you to deepen and engage
fully in the music and imagery experience through verbal interactions.
She may ask questions that help you reflect on emotions, insights,
perceptions of the imagery experience and provide affirmation when you
experience new patterns of thought and behavior. The presence of a
guide supports you in the imagery experience and facilitates the depth of
the experience/insights. The guide is present to prevent you from
becoming stuck in the imagery and to facilitate emotional, psychological,
and energetic releases and transformation.
The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music is much like having a
waking dream. Imagery can be visual, emotional, sensory, or cognitive.
You are aware of yourself during the session. Because the imagery
arises from you and not the guide, it is a direct communication from the
deeper parts of yourself. The imagery therefore is more individualized and
personally meaningful than scripted imagery or hypnosis sessions.
During the music and imagery portion of the session, Dalena will keep a
script of your dialogue/imagery. After the session, we review the script
and your original intention for the session.
