Have you ever wondered how to pursue the work of understanding dreams? This workshop will be a wonderful opportunity to share dream images or questions about dreams and to witness dreamwork principles in action.

Many of us have a recurring or long-remembered dream that refuses to release us regardless of how hard we try to extract its hidden wisdom. We struggle with dreams of unlikely relationships, or danger, or death. We are confounded by the appearance of people from our past or by a strangely familiar place we’ve never known in waking life.

How can we cooperate with the healing intention of our psyches, when we are given such symbols, whether powerful or whimsical, tender or zany, that seem so draped in mystery?  What does this work of finding meaning look like?

In this workshop, Richard Sweeney will respond to dreams or dream segments presented by participants.  We will learn under his gentle guidance how to interact with and coax meaning from our dreams. In the process, he will review, illustrate, and apply the various elements of dream interpretation discussed in Part One of the workshop. Please note that it is not necessary to have attended Part One in order to gain a significant understanding of how to interpret your dreams!
