The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach. -- C.G. Jung
dreamer has a profound connection to deep Psyche-As-Source. C.G. Jung
found dreams to be progressive, meaning that they have goal toward
ongoing developing consciousness and personal transformation enabling
the dreamer to find and cultivate their own connection to self and
Psyche. Jung felt that if enough people do their own work this will have
a transforming affect upon culture (which is an expression of and
transformative vehicle of consciousness). He suggests that our personal
work with the Psyche can even transform "God" (and we can discus what
he means by that in upcoming sessions).
I will guide dreamwork from a mainly Jungian perspective and will also bring
in other approaches to dreamwork (from gestalt to shamanism) which
may enhance participants' relationships to the dream and that which dreams
us dreaming in and through us. I'll suggest readings which may enhance your
understandingof dreams. Various techniques will be taught which may dream
the dream on into waking consciousness and personal transformation. Themes
emerge for the dreamer to track and work with. Participants will usually discover
that dreamwork awakens, enhances and strengthens intuition which will most
certainly contribute not only to your approach to dreams but to everyday life, as well.
Each participant will have an opportunity to discus their dreams. In each
session we will discus at least 2 dreams of 2 participants with room for discussion,
associations, interpretations, and teaching regarding various theories, techniques
and interactions with regard to dreams. The only requirements for participation are
commitment, curiosity, humor and compassion.
If you haven't already, begin a dream journal. Bring it to class.
