About the workshop
Our dreams are incredible sources of insight and guidance. But a common pitfall in working with our nightly poetic narratives is that the work becomes a procrustean endeavor. That is, we fall into the trap of working with our dreams in a way that only serves our ego's already established modes of being. We might look for the correct way of interpreting the dream, and when we think we've found it, we feel a job done, but still, we find ourselves entrenched in unwanted old patterns of being. The antidote is to guide the work by embodied experience.
What we'll explore
In this workshop we will take an experiential and embodied approach inspired by the danish Jungian analyst Ole Vedfelt's integrative psychotherapy. We will explore how methods used in meditative practices, art therapy, resource therapy, dreamwork, and somatic experiencing, can be used in an integrated way for tuning into and letting the dream content affect us on a deeper level. We will learn ways of using our dreams to guide us and cultivate more positive states of being.
All you need to bring is yourself and a recent dream. If you do not remember your dreams, you can work with a theme or a situation in your life on which you seek clarity or a deepened understanding. The workshop will run from 10:00-16:00, and there will be a long lunch break where you can enjoy your own food or find something in the local neighborhood.
