When we pay unbiased attention to our dreams we notice that we are in a world where multiple perspectives coexist. The activity of dreams, as natural and innate as the human heartbeat, has extraordinary therapeutic potential and is widely thought to trigger the body’s own self-healing response. Becoming aware of our dreams as a potential state of consciousness has dramatic results. As we dialogue with what's different from our habitual state we become a self-organizing system without an overarching controlling self. It makes us more resilient, fluidly adapting to interior and exterior challenges.
In this seminar, Robert Bosnak will teach us techniques that make it possible for us to stew in a state of multiplicity until we witness emergent phenomena that are entirely fresh and have profound implications for therapy.
