Discovering the Secret Language of Your Dreams
April 4 1-3pm Chota Rec Center Room D
DREAMS – – whether you remember them or not – we all have them. But what about them? Villager Karel Alexander James Bouse, PhD will introduce participants to techniques by which they can delve into their dreams in order to extract their meaning. Dreams are frequently messages from our deeper selves. They can be prophetic, instructive, problem-solving, and even life- saving; but one must know how to decipher the meanings. Dreams differ from rational thought and sensory cognition in that they are (1) non-linear, and (2) expressed in frequently multi-dimensional symbols. Each symbol has a deep meaning that is known only to the dreamer.
This two hour session will include Karel’s instruction followed by some personal deconstruction of a dream using some creative and expressive techniques under Karel’s guidance.
Come Prepared! Bring a written description of a dream you have had, to the extent that you can remember it. Recent or recurrent dreams are best, but an outstanding dream from the past will work as well.
