Dream Group with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot
SUNDAY EVENING AND MONDAY MORNING - Sunday 29 November 2020, 21:00- 22:00 and Monday 30 November 2020, 07:00 - 08:30 BST
Freud believed that dreams were the royal road to the unconscious. They can reveal aspects of ourselves that we might normally repress, our shadow, like our wish to kill, attack. But they can also point to our creativity, our potential.
In this workshop we are going beyond individual dreams and dreamers and looking at social dreaming. The idea behind this is that just as the individual dream is the route to the personal unconscious, social dreaming, the sharing of dreams in a communal setting is a possible royal road to our collective unconscious, both revealing our collective shadow and our collective potential.
We will prepare the ground on the Sunday night, looking at techniques for remembering and a collective guided fantasy. On the Monday morning we will share dreams, treating them not as individual dreams, but belonging to us all, noticing what themes and messages there might be for us collectively.
This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.
To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.
The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues. The guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances. Please contribute what you can to help us maintain inclusive professional training.
