Embodied Dreamwork is a collaborative process of dreamwork where dreamer and dreamwork practitioner work together to unlock the mysteries and teachings of the dream for the dreamer. Because every dreamer is unique, every dream and dream language is unique to the dreamer. Dreams do not always, well actually rarely, present the deep and profound teachings in obvious ways. Instead, they work with the dreamer through feeling, experiences, surprise, humor, strangeness and even through shock to provoke and evoke feelings, patterns (healthy and otherwise), trauma, healing and the unknown that are inside of us – where we live, how we are stuck, what keeps us stuck and also the way through. We learn best through experience, through the felt, through the dance between our intellect and our unconscious knowing.
The heart of Embodied Dreamwork is this – that every dreamer is unique and every dream is crafted/tailored to the dreamer and what the dreamer needs in their journey. This makes this way of working with dreams particularly powerful, unique and so deeply personal. Part of this process of working with dreams is to discover the unique language of dreams for the dreamer and knowing that each dream, even, may have its own particular dialect. This process also creates a challenge around learning (and teaching) how to work with dreams in this way because it is not really possible to say universally what something means when it arises in a dream.
Working with and understanding the theory and the practice of dreamwork is one aspect of learning to work with others. Another aspect is to be with the dreams of dreamers to learn how the dreams work in actuality. In this monthly seminar, Embodied Dreamwork Teacher Sue Scavo will work with “case studies”, to show and explore how to work dreams through the dreams. We will explore this in several different ways:
- Students who are working with dreamers will be invited to bring dreamers they are working with or have worked with (with permission from the dreamers) as examples to study and investigate the how of working with dreams;
- We will work “live” with participant dreams;
- We will work with “case studies” – ie following a dreamer through several sessions to show the different arcs of work.
You do not have to have to be currently working with dreamers to participate in this seminar. This is for everyone – for those who are working with dreams, for those who would like to work with dreamers, for those who want to explore the possibility of working with dreamers and for those who simply want to learn more about this way of working with dreams.
