Dream Workshop for Men 50 and Older
November 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $75 – $90
Presented by Robert Moradi, M.D.
Once we get used to listening to our dreams, our whole body responds like a musical instrument. –Marion Woodman.
Dreams after midlife are commonly in the service of helping the dreamer face challenges of aging, both physical and emotional, as one grapples with changes in the body, in one’s relationship to partners, siblings, children and grandchildren, as well as changes in one’s attitude towards work and friendships. Using dreams presented by group members, we will analyze and reflect about the possible meanings underlying the images of the dream from a Jungian perspective. Although personal, reflecting on each dream is always valuable, not only in the dreamer but also for those who are witnesses or contributors to the process of understanding the hidden meanings in another person’s dream.
- Describe some of the psychological transitions unique to men in midlife (age 50 and older)
- Describe Jung’s technique of analyzing dreams as a way of clarifying underlying unconscious conflicts
- Give an example of how a dream can reflect both a personal situation as well as a larger collective concern
- Give an example of how one’s shadow (the unacceptable, devalued or denied aspects of one’s personality) can be revealed in a dream
- Give an example of a dream which highlights an impending major life transition
