In entering into conversation with her negative introjects via intuitive inquiry, the author discovered moments when the inner critic seemed to go on vacation. Those moments then evolved into a practice of spontaneous writing with her own photographic images in which the inner critic no longer seemed to have a role to play. Utilizing alchemical hermeneutic and artistic-creative methodologies, the author describes the development of an imaginal practice informed by a process she calls glimpses. The alchemical hermeneutic process through which this imaginal, amalgamated practice of spontaneous writing with photographic images developed then formed the topic of this thesis. Depth psychology and photographic concepts provided the containers from which this imaginal practice spoke to finding lost callings, to education, and to anima mundi.
