An Introduction to Dream work over 4 Monday evenings in March: Mon 2nd, 9th, 16th and 30th.
Indigenous cultures have always understood the power of our dreamtime. In the west we have tended towards analysing dreams with the mind. In this introduction to Dreamwork, we will not be interpreting dreams, analytically. I will facilitate you to understand and embody them in your waking life. Dreams have a great potential to bring us into balance, by bringing the unconscious into our conscious awareness. Apparently bizarre and unconnected imagery can become profoundly and deeply pertinent to our waking lives, when accessed in an embodied way. Nobody can tell you what your dreams mean, their symbolism is completely and uniquely yours. It is possible however, to gain a deeper understanding of their resonance and relationship to your conscious life, by exploring them within the confidential context of a group.
You will be encouraged to keep a dream journal and write your dreams down and will be given suggested dream tasks between meetings. In the group, after sharing your dream (within a confidential, held circle) a variety of ways to work with them will be explored. This group is suitable for those with or without previous experience in Dreamwork.
