“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego…”— C.G. Jung
Work with dream theory and material encourages an appreciation and understanding of symbols and symbolic material that is familiar in Biblical literature, liturgy, and art. Such work and study enables and encourages a trust in knowing through wisdom and faith as a complement to our culture’s heavy value on trusting only the rational. Goals for participants include: to develop a better understanding of the concept of true self; to gain insight into aspects of the personality that may not be in conscious awareness; and to facilitate personal/spiritual development through a study of the theory of dreams based largely on the work of Carl G. Jung. Participants would be encouraged to read John Sanford’s book Dreams: God’s Forgotten Language as a basis for understanding and discussion. This group requires a commitment to regular attendance and participation. Fee: $10 per session. For more information and to register, contact The Rev. Canon Jennifer King Daugherty.
