Instructor: Anne Redlich
Research shows that dreaming is something that every human does. However, most people pay little attention to the rich experience of dreaming. Both Freud and Jung were committed to using dreams as the centerpiece of their psychoanalytic practice because they understood that dreams are the most effective way to receive important information from the unconscious mind. Unfortunately, the great collaboration between Jung and Freud ended in a split, leaving the two schools of thought to go their own way. Both men contributed important information that can allow the analyst and the layperson to begin to use the rich information gleaned from dreaming in everyday life. This lecture will explore how anyone can begin to take their dream-life seriously in order to connect to the most creative and intelligent part of his or her own nature. Drawing on Freud, Jung and the great Tibetan Master, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, the true value of dreaming will be discussed.
