About us

“Everything living dreams of individuation, for everything strives towards its own wholeness – and the greatest possible actualization of the Self is the aim of life.” — Carl Jung

Please note: this program requires a minimum of 12 participants.

In this workshop, you will:

  1. learn about C. G. Jung’s meaning of “individuation” and the life cycles that are a part of it and our soul callings.
  2. explore the various dream images that relate to these life cycles and what they may be communicating.
  3. learn how to use active imagination techniques, such as journaling, art, and dream sharing, in working personally and dynamically with images expressed in our dreams.

Explore, through guided imagery, journaling, art, and group dream sharing, symbols that come in our dreams during major life transitions. Retreat as you earn continuing ed. credit.

Referred to as the “individuation process,” or Self-realization, it is the ego’s constant striving to be in relationship with its true essence, that which is inherent in the greater Self. Archetypal images and symbols express this essence or potential and are revealed to us in our nightly dreams, fantasies and spontaneous expressions.

The value of these images, however, are gained only when we are willing to engage with them emotionally and by asking ourselves: “What is this leading to? Where is its goal?” Such a process of inquiry enriches our lives, expands our conscious awareness and provides meaning to a life that may seem painful or unfulfilling.
