CNS5280 Dreams, Archetypes, and Personal Mythology

Course Description

As Sandor Ferenczi, Hungarian psychiatrist and friend of Freud and Jung, said, “Dreams are the workshop of evolution.” This course allows participants to share and explore their own dream memories, using group projective methods, (“...in my imagined version of this dream…”), with particular attention to the underlying themes and recurring motifs embedded in these narratives. In turn, these recurrent symbolic patterns disclose the basic shape(s) of the dreamer's previously unconscious “personal mythology” - an unconscious symbolic “story” that always influences the dreamer’s waking life perceptions and life decisions.
