This will be a webinar. The Zoom information will be sent out the day before.
We can sleep-dream, awake-dream, and even dream for another person. Dreams are the communication of the soul. Often the dream state is used to move us in life in ways that are profound if we choose to pay attention to them. Through our dreams, we have access to the unseen spaces within and around us. Explore how to listen more intentionally to dreams on your own journey and in your companioning with others.
In this introductory session, we will learn the basics of how to participate with our dreams through amplification, reflection, and opening into their mysterious messages. We will highlight key dream amplification processes when working with others and begin to track the energy of dreams within this subtle space, learning to listen to how dreams guide us toward the voice of the soul.
This workshop is for anyone interested in working with their own dreams or using dream work in their work with others as spiritual directors, therapists, or pastors. We will use a depth psychology perspective that highlights dream amplification principles. Depth dream work acknowledges patterns and energies in the world, but allows a dream to speak rather than limiting it to a symbols book or our idea.
Participants will learn:
- How to begin attending to your own dreams for spiritual growth and expansion
- Key principles for dream amplification to enhance the imagery and symbology (rather than interpretation)
- Ways to partner with another person in illumining the messages of dreams
- How to track dream symbology for spiritual growth and development
It would be beneficial for participants to track their dreams during the week before, noting any symbology, themes, characters, and stories that are delivered in your dreams—even a whisper or a vague sense is a crucial part of dream work. Keep a notebook by your bed and jot down any dreams upon waking.
