Exploring our Unlived Life Through Dreamwork
February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Presented by Sherri Mahdavi, Ph.D.
In each of us is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from the way we see ourselves. – C.G.Jung
The unexamined life is surely worth living, but is the unlived life worth examining? – Adam Phillips
Jung viewed the dream as a continuous form of communication from the unconscious Self to the conscious ego. In this seminar, we will discuss how the awareness of our dreams and their symbolic content can connect us to our unlived life, the life we have not yet experienced. Drawing from case material we will examine different approaches to analyzing dreams, including working with the dream material through active imagination.
- Describe different approach to dream interpretations.
- Give an example of how a dream can reflect an unconscious conflict.
- Describe the method of active imagination in dream work.
- Describe what is meant by the compensatory function of dreams.
- Describe different dream symbolism.
- Describe what is meant by the shadow and give an example of how it can manifest in a dream.
- Describe what we mean by an unlived life.
- Give an example of how images in dreams can connect us to our unlived life.
