Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums
The Field of Dreams
Speaker: Gary Brown, LCSW, LP.
The dream, to paraphrase Jung, is a portrayal by the psyche of itself. He also notes that the dream appears to be multidimensional, in the sense that it extends, apparently to the dreamer, through time and space. Viewed from this perspective, the psyche not only has a field but is a field, although one of infinite extension. Ordinarily this field is dark, i.e., invisible. But we can make this “darkness visible” in Milton’s words, via dreams and other imaginal work.
We will look at this psychic intuition, the notion of the Field, though various symbolic/metaphoric images from various eras and cultures of humanity: Indra’s Net, The Endless Knot, The Interconnectedness of All Things as well as its appearance in modern science and technology, gravity and metaphorized as the the World Wide Web. These images lie in the background of our lives and pervade our dream work, both individually and in analytic work with an analyst or therapist.
