Learn how to interpret the universal language of your nightly dreams and to use their guidance toward a more consciously-directed life.
Paramhansa Yogananda emphasizes that advancing on the spiritual path toward Self-realization requires self-introspection of our strong and weak qualities. He also says that our nightly dreams hint of our spiritual progress and of the “call of God.” This workshop begins on Saturday morning, where you will learn about the spiritual tradition of dreams, different levels of the subconscious from which dreams come, the purpose and function of dreams in our lives, and techniques to use in remembering your dreams.
Throughout the workshop, you will then learn specific ways to work with your dreams that include guided imagery, dream weaving, group dream processing, and creative ways to actively engage with your dream images. On Saturday evening, the group will meet at the Shubatani House for an experience of group dream processing that brings to light Carl Jung’s theories on the collective consciousness of our lives.
10:00 – 12:30 pm Presentation and discussion of the various elements of dreams, how to remember them and ways to include them as a spiritual practice.
12:45 – 1:30 pm Lunch
2:00 – 4:00 pm Learn the process of image association and dream weaving, using one of your dreams. Bring a significant, recurring or recent dream and you will be guided step-by-step in how to interpret it. (If you don’t have a dream, you will be given a dream to work with, which will inspire more dreams to come to you.)
