This four-week workshop is for three audiences: (1) those who do not remember their dreams once awakened, but want to learn how, (2) those who want to understand their dreams for greater self-awareness and personal growth, and (3) those who want to learn how to induce their favorite dreams, and explore lucid dreaming. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to keep a daily (or nightly!) journaling habit by writing out their dreams in detail. During weekly sessions, journaling coach Nathan Ohren teaches techniques for capturing, befriending, and understanding even the strangest of dreams. Why does your fourth grade teacher show up in a scene when you are late for work because elephants are walking across the freeway offramp? If dreams are the messages from our subconscious mind, why not learn how to decipher and interpret them? And, is it really possible to alter the content of your dreams by teaching yourself to become aware when you are in the middle of a dream?
A pen, a notebook, and a “Dream Totem” are the only requirements for this course. (We’ll discuss the Totem in our first session together.) If you’re a person who doesn’t usually remember your dreams, you’ll enjoy the techniques shared!
In addition to daily journaling, you will be encouraged to explore fun homework assignments, tips, “reality tests”, and exercises to enrich the awareness of your dream life. A private page on Facebook is also available for those who want a bulletin board or “journaling circle” to communicate with others who share this interest.
