Dear friends, recently I (Thomas Yun) completed a course with the Institute for Dream Studies and received a certification as a Dreamwork Professional. The Institute for Dream Studies was founded by Justina Lasley, originally from the Atlanta area, who was inspired by Jeremy Taylor to pursue education in transpersonal therapy and dream work later in her life after raising her children and sending them to college.
Group dream work differs greatly from working on your dreams by yourself or with an individual therapist. Having multiple perspectives can help bring out a richer understanding of a dream and the group identity also provides support and connection. In addition, the approach that Justina Lasley taught uses a transpersonal approach to the dreams, which allows us to make use of projections as opposed to having to avoid them.
It is important to emphasize how this kind of group dream work closely aligns with social justice work and environmentalism, especially in bringing the shadow to light, which Dr. Taylor strongly emphasized in his teachings on dream work.
So please join me in an introductory workshop on group dream work on Saturday January 21st @ 5 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Gwinnett. The workshop will last about two hours and will consist of about a half-hour of introduction and explanation, but the “meat” of it will be sharing and talking about dreams. Ideally, everyone would have a chance to share their dream with the group. Then we would pick one or two dreams to work in depth on. For those that find this kind of work interesting, we would hope to form an ongoing dream work group to continue the group dream sharing.
