Where would we be without our dreams? I don't mean just those that we dream at night - and frequently do not remember - but also those that we dream during the day: our daydreams?

While our daydreams may point out those areas in our lives that we could - if we put our intentional focus on them - develop and achieve, because daydreams often bring an emotional element with them, which can be highly important in the realization of our goals and dreams, our nocturnal dreams however, carry quite a different quality.

Those dreams that we alternatively enjoy or wrestle our way through during the night can be both harbingers and symbols of elements and developments that are occurring at the deepest levels of our psyche, and by means of the dream, are telling us that they are on the way out into the open…much as a baby chick bursts out of the egg shell, or what was once a caterpillar emerges from the cocoon in the transformed shape of the butterfly.

Why is it so important to pay attention to our dreams? Would you consider receiving a letter from someone you love and throwing it - unread - into the waste paper basket? Would you contemplate receiving an elaborately wrapped gift package from a stranger - or what at first glance appears to be a stranger - and throwing it away sight unseen?

I am confident that most of you will answer a resounding no to those two questions. Yet this is precisely what we tend to do with our dreams. We throw them away. We pay no attention to them. We give them a side glance, a derogatory, cursory, slightly curious look, and then turn our attention to more important matters - such as brushing our teeth, or getting into the shower.

Our dreams are symbolic messages to ourselves about ourselves. We ignore them foolishly. We spend serious money going to all manner of counselors, psychiatrists, coaches, mediums, tarot card readers, astrologers, etc., and yet we do not spend even a fraction of the time we spend on these other endeavours on our dreams. Our so important dreams. Our wise dreams. Our connection to our innermost self.

In my work, I often use clients' dreams in order to better understand the reasons they have come to see me, or to understand how to proceed, or to see the actual progress they are making. Some clients bring me no dreams. That is also OK. However, often as time goes by, suddenly they do have a dream they remember. And often enough it has a clear meaning for them which clarifies something important in their lives.

Bi-weekly Jungian Dream Interpretation Group Meetings

Jungian dream interpretation groups meet twice monthly for one hour and 30 minutes. Membership is limited. The format is a short didactic period at the beginning of each group to discuss dream symbols, dream retention methods, and dream induction, and the remaining approximately 70 minutes are spent listening to, and interpreting group members’ dreams. It is expected that by attending six sessions, members will feel confident in giving their own dreams meaning.

Times: Evening Group in English: 20:00 – 21:30 (8:00 - 9:30 pm) scheduled for Thursdays, starting on January 18th, 2007. Space permitting, newcomers are welcome to join any time.
