Dreams are impartial, spontaneous products of the unconscious psyche, outside the control of the will. They are pure nature; they show us the unvarnished, natural truth, and are therefore fitted, as nothing else is, to give us back an attitude that accords with our basic human nature when our consciousness has strayed too far from its foundations and run into an impasse.
~ Carl Jung
In the oldest of stories, you will find the power and wisdom that people sought through dreams. In the book of Ezekiel, the prophet learns much from the wheel of life in his dreams. Ancient peoples connected to their ancestors through their dreams. As Jung states above, dreams are unfiltered whispers from the deeper places within ourselves. Jung felt that through dreams, our psyche is communicating with us.
Dreams can transform us, but, like anything, we must be in relationship with them. Valuing and paying attention to your dreams is the first step to know the power of your dreams. Journaling and allowing the dream to “work” you allows for a deeper relationship with these mysterious places within. Seeking guidance from a mentor or community begins to bring understanding and clarity. The more we pay attention to our dreams, the more vivid and insightful they can become.
Dr. Jenny Finn will be offering programs that allow you to explore your dreams as powerful messages coming from within you. Jenny is informed by the work of Christy Callaham in Colorado Springs and Kathryn Kuisle. To learn more about the Dream Doorway, email her directly.
If you are interested in exploring the power of your dreams in community, please email Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be added to a list of interested participants and contacted once we have enough people (8 participants!) to start a course. Please share with those who might be interested.
