The pandemic has so altered life as we thought we knew it. Looking at our situation through the lens of dreams, may provide a useful orientation into the strangeness of our shared catastrophe. ~ Paul Lippmann, 2021
You are invited to join a small interactive, online dream group for writers, poets, artists, clinicians, and individuals interested in exploring one’s own and the dreams of others.
This is not a therapy group, but you will experience a method of working with dreams and the creative imagination that can enhance your understanding of how dreams influence your current life experiences. During this dream group, you will be guided as you re-enter the landscape of your dreams using a method called Embodied Imagination®. By slowly and carefully exploring your dreams from a variety of perspectives you will learn to attend to and embody the sensations and affective states present in the images. This work has been known to lead to an increased depth of the creative imagination and a profound sense of one’s own humanity.
Dreams are the universal language of the soul. In this group, I will guide you as you re-enter the landscape of your dreams. A slow and careful exploration of the images from various perspectives leads to an increased depth of the creative imagination and a profound sense of one’s own humanity.
By working on dreams, it is believed that at the core of the stresses and fears that haunt us most, an agent of change can be found to transform our daytime problems and bring
about a different sense of being alive.
