Dreams, Archetypes and Transformation

In this workshop we engaged in conversation about deepening an understanding of archetypal patterning, and consider how change and transformation is a key archetypal pattern. We looked at three archetypes: warrior, wise woman and healer, and reflected on how these archetypal patterns have been lived in myths, stories and dreams and consider their personal relevance and impact on social/cultural life.

Dreams at Transitional Points in Life

In this workshop we will be looking at the dreams of childen, of mature age individuals and seniors to consider how dreams from ours or others experiences of these stages of life can be best be engaged with . What do we know about these differing stages and what is the impact on our dreaming lives? What can we do to support ourselves and loved ones or clients through transitional stages using dreams as our vehicle?

Dreams Doorways

By their very nature dreams invite multiple access points—doorways—through which we can enter, enquire and engage. In this workshop we discussed lucidity, shamanic dreaming; somatic dream work, projective dream work, integral dreaming and dreams, health and healing.

Dreams and Spirituality

Spiritual dreams speak meaningfully to people’s ultimate existential concerns, and bring people closer experientially to the powers of the sacred. The drive to form a conscious relationship with something larger than oneself is the core of a spiritual impulse. We can experience this impulse as ‘being pulled by pain’ or ‘pushed by possibility’.

In all we had a day of dreamsharing and dream exploration with a mix of learning opportunities: workshop presentation; experiential art activities; meditative space and inner reflection.

16th Feb 2014

Dreamscapes, Landscapes and Creativity

Land, landscape, country are powerful and pivotal. Through landscape we enter into a rich and complex set of relationships of language, embodiment, experience, emotion, metaphor, myth and symbol.

Three principal areas of focus for the day were: (1) In what ways can our dreams of landscape help us to contemplate our relationship to nature, land and environment? (2)How might an engagement with dreams and landscape contribute to our sense of belonging, well-being and sense of connection? (3) Do dreams have a place in guiding and informing us about issues of climate change and sustainability?

In this interview, Dr Gillespie shares how the experience of feeling both accompanied and guided through life by dreams has been both a gift and a challenge. She shares how following the impact of a powerful dream, she retired from her long term psychotherapy practice and embraced full time doctoral research into the psychological experience of engaging with climate change issues.
