Have you ever wondered about the meaning of a dream that you recall the next morning? Most of us have. Gene Gendlin’s classic work, Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams, explains how to use Focusing and your Felt Sense of a dream to plumb its depth, discover its hidden meaning, and carry your living forward. While many of us have this book on our Focusing bookshelves, it seems few have been able to apply it.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about his distinctive, bidirectional approach to working with dreams; how his method relates to his philosophy of the implicit; and, how to use his 16 Questions. In each of the workshop’s four sessions, time will be allotted to working on a dream, mine or yours. You’ll also learn about Gendlin’s Bias Control and how to use Focusing Partnerships for working on dreams with a trusted listener. Just as in Focusing, you never have to disclose information you want to keep private.
Please join us on Zoom on February 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th from 10 am to 12 noon ET.
Workshop Requirements: Open to all who have an interest in learning about how dreams carry forward our living
