When an animal appears in a dream it brings an invitation to enter into its world, to connect with its nature. If we accept this invitation we may discover a new relationship to our often-neglected instincts. Becoming a modern individual necessitates a certain distance from the instincts. However, we can become one-sided, living mostly through the mind. This imbalance is a disconnection from one's true nature, causing suffering from the loss of meaning.
The dream of the animal is the face of the instinct. The task is to interpret the animal as archetype and to apply its meaning to one's process. This presentation will be an exploration of animal symbolism through Jungian dream analysis.
- Describe the relationship between archetype and instinct.
- Demonstrate knowledge of amplification of images in dreams.
- Identify how dreams mirror inner conflict.
