Lecture and Discussion Hosted by Charleston Jung Society. After the death of her daughter thirty years ago, Susan Olson had a series of healing dreams that prompted her to write a book about her experience. Her lecture will include several instances of dreams occurring during the various “stages of grief.” Illustrations of mythical journeys to the underworld will amplify the archetypal nature of grief and mourning. Following the lecture, there will be time to share comments, questions, and personal examples of grief dreams. Susan Olson grew up in Wisconsin and studied English literature at Smith College (1964) and the University of Wisconsin (1965). She received her M.S.W. from the University of Georgia in 1975 and practiced as a therapist for many years in Athens, GA. in 1986 she began her studies at the C.G. Jung Institute (Zurich), graduating in 1992. Susan now practices in Atlanta and is affiliated with the Memphis/Atlanta seminar of the Inter- Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. She enjoys reading, writing, and teaching, and is the author of several articles, book reviews, and the book By Grief Transformed: Dreams and the Mourning Process (Spring, 2010).

    What we're about

    Charleston Lucid Dreamers is a group for those interested in exploring the concept of lucid dreaming (being aware that you are dreaming while you are dreaming). No prior lucid dream experience is required. The meetings are intended to present an opportunity for the informal sharing of dream experiences among those interested in developing or enhancing their ability to experience lucidity in the dream state. The meetings are also intended to provide lucid dreamers (and aspiring lucid dreamers) with a venue for mutual support, encouragement, and advice. Many lucid dreamers see lucid dreaming as part of their spiritual path. However, this group is not affiliated with any particular spiritual perspective and is open to participants regardless of whether or not they associate lucid dreaming with spirituality.
