Westerners have been raised to believe for the past few centuries that dreams have nothing to do with truth or with their spiritual life. However, early Christian literature bears witness to the spiritual importance of dreams, and in the 20th century the work of Carl Jung has reclaimed for dreams their rightful place in contemporary spirituality. In this workshop, participants will be led to explore the symbolism of their own dreams as a path to a surprising depth of healing.
Two sessions of three hours each of teaching and interactive dialogue about how to re-establish the ancient Christian spiritual discipline of hearing God’s voice in our dreams and how they lead to healing the soul.
Sunday January 23, 2022
Session One: A historic overview of how the early church understood the importance of the dream, and how this emphasis changed, and then disappeared in the West, but retained its vitality in the Eastern Churches.
Session Two. The basic themes found in dreams and how to understand them for correction, guidance, affirmation, spiritual direction. Archetypal aspects of the inner person, Symbols of the Self (Christ Within), symbols pertaining to our intrinsic and instinctive life. The nightmare, as usually a God-speaking dream.
