About Marsha Hudson

Marsha Hudson has a lifelong interest in dreams and began recording her dreams as a teen.  Since 2002 she has facilitated dream work with individuals, with group, and workshops.  She has studied archetypal projective dreamwork with Jeremy Taylor and is certified by the Marin Institute of Projective Dream Work.  She is a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams(IASD) and follows its code of ethics.

Her background in literature, languages, and culture has given her powerful tools for doing dream work.  She earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in comparative literature with a specialty in poetry from UC Berkeley.  She knows ancient Greek, has studied both Greek and Latin literatures, and is well versed in the myths and legends of western culture, as well as some non western cultures. Through her study of both ancient and modern poetry she makes the connection between the figurative language of poetry and the metaphoric imagery of the dream.  She and former colleagues of comparative literature have co written and edited an anthology of personal essays called The Berkeley Literary Women’s Revolution:  Essays from Marsha’s Salon, published in 2005 by McFarland & Company, Inc.

In June, 2018 Marsha and her partner Norman Brown founded the Love and Power for Planetary Sustainability. Dreamwork is an essential fundamental practice in extending awareness of ourselves, our emotions, and the urgency of the planetary crisis.  Follow this link to that website:  lovenandpowerinstituite.org to learn more.

Marsha Hudson is also a certified gestalt practitioner, an approach to personal growth that is present centered and that emphasizes awareness and the inherent wisdom of each person.  This training especially enhances working with dreamers in both its philosophy of empowerment and in its techniques that assist in the development of self awareness and healing.
