Like the dream journal, dream sharing gives participants new insight into their own thought processes, emotional worlds, and sources of creative inspiration. It develops their capacity to grasp symbolism intuitively, and to communicate with others in a supportive, emotionally authentic manner. It can be a very valuable means of connecting people across accustomed boundaries.
And it's fun and fascinating.
To supplement this season’s dream-journal workshops and as a special benefit to the community, Revolve presents TWO open dream-sharing sessions with Bernard Welt:
Sunday May 31 and Sunday June 14
Both Sessions are from 10:30am - 12:15pm
Dr. Welt conducts dream group sessions drawing on the practices of Montague Ullman and Jeremy Taylor. The method is very non-intrusive and explores dream content rather than proposing interpretations. Typically, only one or two dreams are addressed in detail in a session so be prepared to explore the dreams of other participants as well as your own.
Dream-sharing sessions require punctuality and absolute confidentiality, so no one can join a session after it has begun. Revolve’s dream-sharing sessions are intended for mature persons 16 and older.
Bernard Welt has led many dream-appreciation groups and workshops and is an authority on dream education and on the relation of dreams to cinema. He is a past member of the board of directors of the International Association for the Study of Dreams and writes a column for their member publication, Dream Time. With Phil King and Kelly Bulkeley, he has written Dreaming in the Classroom: Practices, Methods, and Resources in Dream Education (SUNY Press, 2011).
