Sunday,  3:00 PM - 6:00 PMApril 27th,  2014

Each lecture is 3 hours. They begin one hour earlier than the usual time.
The introduction will occur in the first session only.  Attendees who plan to attend the second session are strongly encouraged to also attend the first.

Most dreams can never be completely understood because the images emerging from the unconscious psyche originate from a reality that is beyond time and space.  Paradoxically these same dreams frequently bring light to the here and now condition of the dreamer.  The boundaries around this very temporal condition of one's life separate public from what modernity considers private.  Dreams, however, being inconsiderate of morality, civilization and its norms express both the personal and the universal simultaneously.  In order to obtain the value that is uniquely meant for the dreamer as well as what is human and thus for everyone, openness to the crossing of the private boundary is required of the person sharing a dream, and empathy within a sealed container is required of the witnesses.

In the first of these lectures, we will begin with an introduction to dreams and ways of working towards forming a relationship with the elements within the unconscious psyche that appear in dreams.  This segment will occupy the first half of the first meeting.  The work on the dreams of a volunteer participant will follow and continue into the second three-hour meeting.  The goal is not finding a "correct" interpretation of the dreams presented, but a demonstration of some of the ways to "open up" our dreams in the service of understanding their symbolic communications.
