The Little Dream that Doesn’t Mean Anything

November 15, Friday Lecture 7:30 pm
members: $20; non-members $25; students $10

When a dream is forgotten, dismissed, ignored or called names (“worthless, a snippet, stupid, etc.”), important information is lost. A discussion with clinical examples will explore what many miss: the quiet beginnings of consciousness evidenced in what is often overlooked. The beginning of a process is sacred ground to stand upon. Alchemical parallels, world dreams, fairy tale imagery and elements of dreaming that are routinely misunderstood will be discussed as well.

The World Dream

November 16, Saturday Workshop 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
members: $60; non-members $70; students $50
CEUs $25

There are a few curious dreams that many people have: being in public without clothes, taking a college final without having gone to class, loosing teeth, among others. This seminar will explore what these dreams reveal if we omit the ubiquitous response, “Oh, that’s just an anxiety dream.” There dreams actually present information that corrects/compensates/confronts the world or our culture rather than the individual; just what are these dreams telling us about our society and mores? Working in groups participants will be instructed how to decode these curious universal dreams to see if insight and direction might emerge.
