The Art Therapy Project Presents:

Dream Workshop: A Gestalt Approach to Furthering Self-Awareness

DESCRIPTION

This 3 credit continuing education workshop will include an explanation of the Gestalt approach to dreamwork, and an opportunity to explore actual dream material in a group process format. Gain an understanding of the processes by which the unconscious mind alters the content of dreams in order to conceal their real meaning from the dreamer. These concepts can be explored through our embodied experience of the dream in order to bring to light what may be out of our awareness, but at the crux of our relational blocks. Bring a dream of your own, or simply come to be part of a supportive and powerful group experience as others explore dream images and discover the “existential message” of their dreams. A hands-on art experiential will integrate the full learning experience of this workshop.
