Course Title

Working with Dreams to Help Heal Trauma “Live Online”

Course Description

In this workshop, we will explore how to work with dreams as a gateway to helping heal trauma. Students will learn how to work with dreams as symbolic representations of inner fragmented states. Through an embodied approach to dreamwork, students will learn how to listen to, inhabit, and use dreams as gateways to healing. 

Please bring a dream image or dream excerpt to class.

Some tips to help remember your dreams:

  • Invite a dream before sleeping and make the intention to remember your dream upon waking;
  • Pause before opening your eyes to try to recall aspects of the dream. Anything that captures our attention immediately after waking can interfere with dream recall
  • Record your dreams (audio record with phone or write in journal). Keep a notepad and pen by the bed.
  • Even if you do not think you can remember a dream, take just a minute to see if there is any feeling or image you can describe.

Teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
