“For many centuries human beings have explored the mysteries and meanings of dreams, most often imagining ourselves as center and source of the dream.When we listen to dreams in a different way—when we tend to their living presence, something quite extraordinary happens. Dreams come alive and tell their stories.Our perception changes, our intuition opens, and we hear and learn from the timeless intelligence of Nature as well as our own deeper sense of well being.” —Stephen Aizenstat
In this introductory workshop, Dr. Aizenstat offers both traditional and emerging methods of dream work that explore common dream themes, nightmares, archetypal images, and the recurring dream.
PERSONAL-DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACHES: Dreamwork methods drawn from Freud and the post-Freudians assist us in hearing the voices of the dream in relation to personal history and experience.
ARCHETYPAL APPROACHES: Methods of dream analysis based on the work of Jung, Hillman,Woodman, Lockhart, and others aid in reconnecting to the dream in light of the shared stories and archetypal images of the collective human psyche.
EMERGING ECOLOGICAL APPROACHES: Dr. Aizenstat’s Dream Tending methods animate the images of dreams honoring and joining with the living ecology of the wider landscape, reconnecting us to the realm of imagination and nature.
ONGOING DREAM COUNCIL: Participants will meet daily in ongoing dream councils of four persons to apply material learned in the seminar. This provides an opportunity for each member to work with his or her own dreams.
