“In the deepest sense, we all dream not of ourselves, but out of what lies between us and the other.” ~ C.G. Jung
Our bodies and dreams may be our closest links to the unconscious, expressing the soul’s longing through image, breath, gesture, the rhythm of our step, and the music of our speech.
Dreams carry treasures that enhance the meaning and depth of our life’s journey. Illuminating our inner landscape, they help us come to know disowned parts of ourselves, point to what we value, and provide guidance on our life path. Integrating C. G. Jung’s active imagination approach with embodied methods, Dreamdancing® introduces the person to the inner world of body sensation, feelings, dreams, and images as movement helps them build a bridge between body and psyche. This approach may enhance clinical practice by providing an increased comfort with and appreciation for your own bodily wisdom and feeling responses.
Expanding our awareness of the somatic foundations in therapeutic relationships can deepen empathy and effectiveness in working with others, while providing avenues for self-care and renewal. This day-long workshop will support you in nurturing body and soul through expressive movement, drawing, and writing. Together we will engage our dreams to nourish the self, relationship, and the world.
No experience is necessary. Clinicians, healing practitioners, educators, artists, and those interested are all welcome.
