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 considered the collective unconscious to be the deepest layer and matrix of our psyche. Its building blocks—the archetypes and their symbolic representations, include the shadow, the animus and anima, the great mother, and the wise old man. 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.
