CEUs: 3

This experiential workshop examines how dreams have influenced human experience and development, ways dreams can be harnessed to promote healing and greater consciousness, and what recent research in neuroscience reveals to us about the innate biological function of dreaming. Jung’s invaluable insights into dreams are examined, particularly through his conceptualization of the personal and collective unconscious, the archetypes, and complexes. In addition, we will look at the work of Robert Bosnak and his practice of “embodied imagination”. This is a highly dynamic workshop that includes discussion, film, and image making and is open to clinicians and non-clinicians alike. You will leave with fresh ideas and specific ways to use dreams as a resource for generating insight and expanding creativity.
