Another Whom We Do Not Know: Dreams as the Voice of the Inner Companion
October 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In each of us there is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from the way we see ourselves. When, therefore, we find ourselves in a difficult situation to which there is no solution, he can sometimes kindle a light that radically alters our attitude – the very attitude that led us into the difficult situation.
C.G. Jung, Civilization in Transition ( CW 10, para 325)
Understanding dreams is difficult. Understanding our own dreams sometimes seems almost impossible. Even for those who have studied dreams for many years, one’s own dreams can remain frustratingly opaque. Why is it so difficult to understand what the unconscious is trying to tell us, and how can we get better at hearing its messages to us? This weekend we will explore dream interpretation with the aim of making it easier for us to work with our own dreams. On Friday we’ll look at basic principles of Jungian dream work and learn techniques and skills that foster deepened understanding.
