Dreams can expand, enhance, and enliven any group. How can you encourage members to tell dreams, especially those occurring before and after meetings? What are ways members can safely and creatively engage with dream imagery they hear? How can you distinguish between a dream that is mainly intrapsychic (subjective) and one that is interpersonal (actually about others)? If these issues interest you, please come to this informational and demonstration session of dreamwork. My approach stays close to the dream images so their metaphors become a shared language the group can use. Illustrations of “group dreams,” dreams about the leader, and about group dynamics will be given. Participants are encouraged to bring in dream material for exploration. Bibliography and handouts provided.
