This workshop will provide an overview of a Jungian approach to dream interpretation. We will present basic principles for understanding the symbolic language of dreams. We will also consider the dramatic structure of dreams as well as the underlying psychodynamics reflected in various types of dreams, e.g. compensatory, prospective, traumatic dreams, etc.

We will proceed to examine frequent dream images, motifs and situations. Suggestions will be given concerning the remembering, amplification and utilization of dreams in furthering one’s personal development. Finally, we will explore how dreams can be used as a diagnostic tool in understanding the nature and potential transformation of psychological conflicts.

Coming Soon

Understanding Dreams: Part Two

April 11, 2015
(Attendance at Part One is recommended but not required.)

Part Two will be a wonderful opportunity to bring forward dream images or questions about dreams and to witness dreamwork principles in action. This workshop is designed to provide time for Richard Sweeney to respond to dreams or dream segments presented by participants. In the process of responding to these dreams he will illustrate various elements of dream interpretation discussed in the Part One workshop.
