In this 4-week journey, we will learn how to sit with dreams: ours, and/or of those we minister to.I believe that dreams come from the deepest, most archaic layers of our psyche, and often present to us our psychic situation in a poetic, mythic language. A dream is deeply personal. It is thus a folly to search for a one-to-one correspondence of dream symbols with specific “meanings.” In this course, we will instead learn how to “circumambulate” (walk around and around) a dream, how to sit with the dream figures and scenarios with reverence, and often, with awe. Rather than “interpreting” a dream, our intention will be to “journey into” the depths of a dream, using as a central yardstick those responses that have a particular resonance with the dreamer’s psyche. Eventually, we leave the dream “open” (rather than ultimately understood), so psyche can continue to provide further information, or corrections, as the case may be.
