  • The Art of Dreaming 6-week workshop


A unique Jungian-oriented approach to working deeply with your dreams and nightmares. Dreams are not just the words we use to describe them, but are also populated with people, images and symbols. These messages of the night deserve to be treated as art forms worthy of artful exploration. This class will introduce you to methods of working your dreams. We will also work with the people, symbols and images that appear in your dreams through different art modalities. Through these explorations we may discover what our dreams are trying to tell us.

6 Tuesday evening sessions, 5pm-7pm, From Aug 16 thru Sept 20
$45.00 fee for non-members.
$40.50 fee for members.
$10 Materials fee (payable to instructor at first class) includes the book, “Inner Work”, by Robert Johnson, along with a 9x12 sketchbook.

Class is appropriate for adults over 16.
Students should bring their dream journals (begin one if you have not) and writing pen. A simple spiral notebook works great. Class facilitator will furnish art supplies for use in class.
