The term imaginal, from the Latin imago, relates to the imagination and using rhetorical figures in discourse. Its use with Psychotheatrics describes a group process that nourishes and explores shared experience and imagery that may be viewed, created, or both. Imaginal Psychotheatrics is designed for people who hold an important characteristic in common. In a group setting, people with similar experiences explore a situation related to that shared experience. As they engage with the experience, they create an energy system that combines two complex dynamics: 1) the message of the Expressive Arts rendition and their experience of it, with 2) their relationship with each other and/or their common experience.
