"Dreams are the workshop of evolution."Sharing our dreams deepens our awareness of self, community, and possibilities.
Iagree with Sandor Ferenczi that “dreams are the workshop of evolution” and that the more we bring our dreams into our awareness and share them with others, the more we are participating in our personal and collective evolution. Today dream working is more important than ever across the planet at this critical juncture brought on by climate change.
This is why I am devoted to working with dreams and the people who dream them.
The approach I primarily use and teach is often called projective dreamwork or “if this were my dream” approach because we like to preface all of our commentary on someone’s dream with this statement. The assumption behind this approach is that all dream interpretation is, in effect, a projection of that person and is, therefore, informed uniquely by the perspective and priorities of that person. The approach recognizes that only the dreamer can know the meaning of his or her dream, and honors the dreamer’s understanding.
I work with individuals, small groups and large groups in workshops. On occasion I will organize a multiple day retreat. This work always brings us insights, transformation and healing and is well worth the time we give to it.
“Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.”
“A dream that has not been interpreted is like a letter that has not been opened.”
