What do your dreams mean?
Have you had a dream that feels important lately? A powerful dream you can't get out of your mind or a recurring dream that you want to understand? You might even be experiencing a recurring nightmare and want it to go away.
Dreams and dream analysis are another tool for healing and self-understanding, as they connect us to the language of the psyche and the subconscious. Dreams communicate with us through images that are full of meaning in our own unique life, and by unpacking the images, emotions and feelings that come to us through our dreams, we can understand what our dreams are telling us.
Throughout history people have sought meaning in dreams - from sacred rituals to rites of passage dreams have played an important role in many cultures. Tibetan Buddhists used dreams to achieve a more awakened sate of consciousness. In the dream temples of ancient Greece the ill would perform a sacred ritual and sleep in a special healing templet. The Ojibwa, a Native American tribe, would send young adults to embark upon a dream or vision quest as a rite of passage.
In this one day workshop you will explore the meaning of dreams and take a look at the importance of dreaming and the subconscious. You will also learn about the role that dreams play in art, religion, spiritual practices and psychology and journey through some ancient cultures as you explore various cultural approaches to dreams.
