Upcoming events (2)
This is our 24th meetup.
PLEASE NOTE : we will be returning to weekdays due to my schedule. I hope every other Thursday at 7 pm will serve most people.
Again, I hope the new day of the week will serve all regulars and new attendees as well.
Bring a dream to share !
As a psychotherapist with a deep orientation in Jungian thought I am interested in dreams and their function, and perhaps purpose, within our Psychic tapestry.
Patanjali describes "dreaming" as a remembering during our sleep.
So, lets meet weekly to talk about "dreaming" and to share and study our dreams. And perhaps collectively compose a working description of what are dreams, and explore what is the function and purpose of dreams.
In other words, how do dreams serve the Psyche?
The following participants volunteered to share their respective Dream.
1. to be determined
2. to be determined
Meetups will follow a simple structure. Yet, improvements are welcomed.
NOTE : I will facilitate the process when necessary,
1a. Pre-selected volunteers (1,2 or 3) will share a dream. Volunteers are urge to prepare by writing down their dream before sharing them. Sharing should take approximately 8 to 12 minutes in length. Pictorials/drawings of dream images are welcomed yet not required.
1b. As the dreamer describes her/his dream, attendees should take notes. Record significant images and words, and begin "amplifying images/words" from the shared dream. Please be willing to share your amplifications. And, if possible, fashion a tentative interpretation of the dream. In other words, what is the dream's "story line?"
2. The "dreamer" may provide an interpretation of the dream. This step is optional.
3a. A group discussion will ensue. This should include amplifications of images and words. All attendees are encouraged to participate yet this is not required. Only listening is okay.
3b. Questions may be posed to the dreamer.
4. Possible interpretations are presented by those whom are bold.
5. Dreamer may share some closing thoughts/feelings regarding the group discussion.
6. NEXT VOLUNTEER ......
After our final discussion, attendees may express final remarks.
Join me and lets cultivate an effective correspondence with our Personal and Collective Unconscious.
This will be our FINAL MEETUP on this book.
So, lets conclude our conversation/discussion on Edinger's "Ego and Archetype."
Please read the final two chapters, chapters 9 and 10 (pp.225 to 295) and then, lets meet to discuss the material.
Meredith has volunteered to lead our final conversation.
Inserted is a free pdf of Edward Edinger's seminal work, "Ego and Archetype."
We will follow the "round table" format. I will facilitate if/when necessary.
