Knowing Ourselves Through Our Dreams, Part II: The Collective Unconscious

GENINT 731.320
Osher (50+).  In this course, we explore, learn and discuss Jung’s concepts of the collective unconscious and experience the process of working through dream material.

About this course:

C.G. Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious refers to structures of the unconscious mind which are shared among beings of the same species. According to Jung, the human collective unconscious is comprised of instincts and archetypes—universal symbols such as the great mother, the wise old man, the shadow, and the tree of life. In this course, we explore, learn and discuss these concepts and experience the process of working through dream material as we learn to utilize active imagination and amplification. This combined exposure to dream work in a discussion setting unites the personal experience with Jung’s theories. Participation in the first course is not required.
