This workshop will offer techniques and depth approaches to working with dreams. During the weekend, we will move from ego-based interpretive approaches to image-centered ecological approaches. Students will learn how to apply various methods of DreamTending as conceived by Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., to include: Personal/Developmental, Archetypal and Ecological forms of DreamTending, which will be explained and explored. We will work with dreams and dream images using imaginal, artistic and experiential approaches. This workshop will cover basic conceptual and theoretical views including: Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams, C.G. Jung’s Memories, Dreams, Reflections, James Hillman’s work and other image-based approaches. Students will be asked to keep a dream journal before and during the workshop and to bring several dreams and dream images to work with in class.
