Dreams as the Journey With the Soul
May 12, 2000 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Friday lecture, entitled “The Hundredth Dreamer”, will outline the historical and cultural factors and attitudes that, in effect, have eclipsed dreamwork in Western society, in spite of the work of Freudians and Jungians. These factors have typological characteristics that have produced resistances to the type of consciousness needed for dreamwork, namely introverted, intuitive, and feeling traits. We will see this in Jung’s early life, as described by him in his 1925 seminar. It will be shown how these resistances have dampened dreamwork in our society and how they often appear within a dream consciousness and content.
