Online Videoconferenced Dreamwork Training/Personal Dreamwork Groups
I have been leading dream groups since the 80s, when I first became licensed as an LPC in Virginia. Please see my bio for more information concerning my background in lucid dreaming and dream analysis. Currently, I offer hybrid dreamwork training/personal dreamwork groups. Some of the individuals in my groups attend primarily to explore their own dreams, while some also wish to obtain training in co-creative dream analysis, so that they can implement dreamwork more effectively in their own practice as a therapist or lay dreamworker.
Each group contains 5-7 individuals, who agree to meet for eight meetings initially. I use Zoom teleconferencing (Go to zoom.us for the software download) to facilitate a sense of full participation. We typically meet bi-weekly on a weeknight for 90 minutes, usually at 7:30 pm Eastern time or midday. The cost is $30 per session, and I ask each person to commit verbally to 8 sessions so that we can establish cohesiveness, and enter into a deep, enriching exchange.
DreamStar Online Dream Groups feature the following:
- Process-oriented, co-creative dream analysis. I expect everyone to read a couple of articles on the FiveStar Method prior to participating in an online group.
- Non-invasive methods for exploring the meaning of dream images––such as Jungian amplification, and Gestalt dialoguing––in all cases! The dreamer is the final authority on the dream’s meaning.
- Ways to enhance dreamer awareness/lucidity in dreams.
- Spiritual practices that can deepen dream experiences.
- Group exercises that can assist you in reaching new depths of dream experience.
If you wish to be considered for a group, please email me so we can schedule a brief Skype or phone session so we can discuss your goals and prior experience in dream work.
