The dream has been known ever since antiquity as a guide to the hidden realms of the human mind. Modern psychology has developed a variety of dream analysis methods for therapeutic purposes. Outside of the clinical setting, however, people rarely have a chance to initiate a dialogue with their dreams. Bearing in mind that a mature person spends nearly two hours of the night in dreams – most of which are forgotten upon awakening – an important part of Western man’s life remains mute.
The workshop will begin with an introductory lecture on dream psychology and physiology. Then, participants will be invited to share their dreams with the group and offer each other insights into the meaning of their dreams. The limits on each participant’s privacy and self-disclosure will be set by him/herself. The workshop does not pretend to help people who need professional psychotherapy, but rather to offer participants greater acquaintance with their inner powers. Emphasis will be put on the capability of dream interpretation to enhance self-acceptance, maturation and creativity.
