Instructor: Keren Vishny
Dreams offer us the possibility of a sacred encounter: an opportunity to know ourselves more deeply and to connect with a Divine Source. There are many biblical and literary examples of sacred dream encounters. But what does it look like when a modern person embraces the dream as a path to the Soul? The work of David Blum shows us one view of this path. Diagnosed with cancer at age 52, David discovered that drawing images from his dreams helped him cope with his illness in profoundly unexpected ways. He tells us, “I embarked on two journeys, one medical, the other spiritual”. Shortly before his death, David felt compelled to share his inner journey in the hope that his experience might inspire others. His efforts resulted in the film, An Appointment with a Wise Old Dog: Dream Images in a Time of Crisis. The Gift of the Dream will include a viewing of David’s film, followed by a discussion. Keren will share her perspective on working with dreams, and provide guidance for participants wishing to begin or deepen their dreamwork practice. This program is suitable for both new and experienced dreamers and will provide an introduction for those wishing to register for ‘Entering the Heart of the Dream’.
