Knowing Ourselves Through Our Dreams: An Introduction to Dream Work
What you can learn.
- Understand the role of dreams in our lives
- Learn about the psychology behind dreams
- Learn about C.G. Jung's philosophy on dreams
About this course:
C.G. Jung regarded dreams to be a gift our psyche affords us, opening the door to the world of the unconscious and teaching us what we do not know about ourselves, our lives, and our relationships. In this course, we learn to connect with and understand our dreams, and make sense of their symbols and imagery in order to find guidance in our daily life. In the process of sharing and working through our dream material, we discuss Jung’s ideas on dreams—their source and function, the structure of the psyche and how it is expressed in dreams, the differences between the personal and collective unconscious, and how they are represented in dream imagery.
