When people first come to see me about working with dreams, they often have a dream that is foremost in their mind for months and sometimes even years! And that’s where we begin.
Following the example of Swiss psychiatrist C. G. Jung, learning to work with the symbols in dreams is a lifelong process. The dreams of children, teenagers, young adults, midlife, and aging are all different. Learning how to use our brain rather than have our brain use us, is also the work of a lifetime. Learning how to work with your dreams is a massive investment in your long-term health and well-being. Every person dreams. You can learn to remember your dreams, to decode and tentatively interpret the symbolism and even incubate a dream. The benefits are never-ending. You spend an inordinate amount of time working to understand your outer world. You are educated, perhaps have a degree or two, attend seminars, workshops and you are an addicted reader! How much time and effort are you putting into learning about your own inner world? Your hidden potential is absolutely amazing. Learning to interpret and work with your dreams is an excellent way to unlock your own potential! Dreams are an unopened letter from Self to yourself.

You are the only person with the knowledge of your life. Over your lifetime you have developed multiple interpretations of words, events, ideas and experiences. You know that you can learn a good deal working with one other trusted confidante–someone with whom you share trust and can discuss your secrets and private feelings. Working in a one-to-one relationship with a dream worker works for many people. It is much more difficult alone.
You can do the research necessary to broaden your understanding of your experiential associations with your dreams but that will limit your understanding immensely! Going beyond your own knowledge is imperative! Research. Learning. Dreams offer us a deep look into our personal unconscious and also the collective unconscious. As a knowledgeable dreamworker with 33 years of experience and learning, I can lead you much deeper on your journey! I can shorten the path to understanding.
How can the group help you? Well, rule number one of dreamwork is GURU. Yes, Gee, You are YOU. Not one other person will know what your dream is offering you. So, why bother with the group? Because the group can help add to, deepen and broaden your ideas and your translations. Often, by ourselves, we reach some quick and literal answer that keeps us and our egoic sense of understanding ourself is kept intact! And we then move on. In the group, we learn to question that initial interpretation and to participate in multiple processes that add to the possibilities. Quantum physics has proven that we are all connected. Jung wrote extensively on the collective unconscious. We can learn a great deal working in a community of dreamers. We can share resources and if we work together over a period of time, we will begin to identify multiple dream patterns.
Further, a skilled dream facilitator helps by asking questions and assisting participants to learn more about how dreams work in the inner world.
