Seminar #1: Fall 2010: 14 weeks
" …Dreams are a spontaneous self-portrayal, in symbolic form, of the actual situation in the unconscious."
— C.G. Jung, CW 8, para 505
An inner journey is undertaken when one listens to their dreams. Historically, dreams have been messengers of the divine, the voice of God and a connection to the deep source of being. However, the wisdom of the dream had been lost during the dominant Christian period, which spanned the last 2000 years. It was not until Freud and Jung rediscovered the rich tradition and value of the dream that the dream received its proper place back into psychological and spiritual development. Through C.G. Jung's own engagement with the unconscious, he discovered that dreams and symbols had a purpose which disclosed the path of one's individuation process. Learning how to listen and analyze dreams ultimately reveals the voice of the Self and leads one closer to their individuated path.
Together, we will study Jung's position on dream analysis and delve into selected readings on the subject of dreams and symbols. We will learn to analyze the structure of the dream like a play, to look at different types of dreams, such as the initial dream, recurring dreams, archetypal dreams, nightmares, etc., and to learn how to amplify and explore dream symbols.
The course will enable individuals and psychotherapists to analyze dreams and will give participants different creative techniques to actively engage the dream.

Jung's Psychology and Traditions
C.G. Jung based his psychological insights both on empirically measurable data and on an historical view of humanity's relationships with what he called the god-image. Gnostic, mystic, alchemist, student of yoga, shamanóJung has been called all of these. He was also a man of his time: the 20th Century, where the collective devotion to material progress and ever-increasing speed brought Jung to address what he saw as a split between "the spirit of efficiency" and "the spirit of the depths," to which he attributed his own a loss of soul, and saw the same in many individuals around him.
This 14-week course surveys four wisdom traditions that influenced Jung's thought and psychotherapeutic method: Tibetan Buddhism, Gnosticism, Mysticism, and Alchemy. In addition to the Jungian model, a variety of contemporary psychotherapeutic practices meet at some of the same fountains of wisdom, such as Contemplative Psychotherapy and DBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Practical applications of various spiritual traditions for psychological development, with specific treatment techniques, will guide class discussions.
Note: There is a $10 materials fee for this course.
