The Basics of Dreamwork
Presenter: Thomas Bonner
Thursdays- October 6, 13, 20, 27; November 3, 10
7:00-8:30 p.m. EST
Through sharing of their own dreams, group members, guided by the group leader will learn and develop basic techniques for working with their own dreams. Areas for discussion include how to capture and record dreams, the mental health benefits of considering dreams as a valuable resource for living in the present, some brief history of the importance of working with dreams, and possible techniques one might employ to better relate to the content and message of dreams.
Group meetings would be structured to include some element of non-experiential education, as well as the group experience of working with dreams. Members would be encouraged to record their dreams, and each group member would be offered the opportunity to bring a dream for the group. Group leader will establish a suitable framework to enhance learning while protecting group members’ well-being.

• To increase understanding of dreams and their relation to the unconscious.
