Dream and Discovery Intensive
with John Markland
“...to dream: ay, there’s the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause.”
September 21st – October 18th
There is a rich subtext, an underlying current or simply an unconscious life within you that when recognized and connected will enrich, embolden, guide and bring magic to your life. Dreams are seemingly more elusive than they really are. We are slightly disconnected from the language in which they manifest but our ability to articulate it is but a spoonful of curiosity away.
A dream lives in the world of emotions, symbols, metaphor, imaginings and impulses so let that become your language while exploring meaning. The unconscious’s goal is movement, progression, awareness, resolution, healing and ultimately wholeness.
This class will be a doorway to the unconscious part of you that has existed from the first electric current. We will explore simple ways to encourage and connect to your dreams. We will experiment with personal approaches on how to dialogue with your unconscious through the language of your dreams. We will begin to unearth a landscape of symbols and metaphor that you yourself will inherently begin to translate. We will discover a map of symbols (guidance system) through which communication evolves and ultimately, will begin to affect your daily life with potent change.
There is a significant amount of journaling, play, drawing, building and patience. The work has already begun but will be tasked a few weeks before we first meet. It is important you really want to explore this and are open to the power your unconscious possesses. If you are interested please contact me directly. I only do this class once a year and you must be committed.
