Working from Within: re-entering dreams to find out what they want
June 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - June 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
On Saturday June 17th I will be presenting a 90 minute workshop at the Annual Conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams in Anaheim, California. In this participatory workshop we will explore the technique of re-entering a dream, exploring it, and perhaps changing it, all from the inside.
Can you re-enter a dream that you had yesterday, last week, years ago? If you can, you may find it is still alive and relevant. In this workshop we will explore a dreamworking technique that is almost completely non-interpretive. In this method we do not focus what the dream means, we focus on what it wants. We discover what it might want by going back into it and exploring its potentials from within. We will begin by re-entering two famous historical dreams from the early days of psychoanalysis– one is the dream of a patient of Sigmund Freud, and the other is a dream of Carl Jung’s. After practicing the method with these two dreams you will be invited to select one of your own dreams and re-enter it. You may find that it still a living thing that has more to tell you, or ask of you.
