The Dreamer and the Dreaming Psyche: The metaphoric and symbolic language of the dream
Join Jungian analyst, psychiatrist, author, and activist Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, as she reveals that dreamwork is an essential part of her practice of Jungian depth psychotherapy. Dreamwork, she says, uses amplification rather than Freudian reductive interpretation. The dreamer's "Aha!" is the final authority on the dream's meaning.
During this highly informative session, you'll discover:
- The language through which dreams speak to us — in metaphors, associations, images, and symbols — and how they can bring to light what we suppress, drawn from personal & collective unconscious content
- That what comes through the dreaming psyche is an ally
- How significant or "big dreams" are remembered, much as significant real life events are, through a synchronistic event
