The Creative Self: Dreams, Secrets and Wishes – A Depth Writing Workshop
November 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Our weekend together allows us to go deeply into an experience of Jungian Dreamwork through Active Imagination. An important aspect of engaging in dreamwork is the ability and opportunity to express unconscious material that has emerged. Our work will involve creative expression in the Depth Writing Workshop. This gives us an experience in finding not only a way to re-enter our dreams but to use them as an avenue for discovery and re-discovery of things we may have forgotten, lost or wish to bring into conscious awareness. These possibilities include opening ourselves to creativity in a manner that we have only hoped for in the past. Our ability to mirror Psyche in our dreams and creative process allows for a richness of Self-expression that can fulfill our deepest wishes.
We will share our dreams with one another, and participate in deepening our individual process, as well as participating in a group process. This will support not only our dreamwork and creativity personal growth but also provides the value of sharing and learning in a group. This greatly supports the increase of consciousness between ego and the unconscious enhancing a more psychological and soul-filled recognition of a true Creative Self.
