Event Summary:

Our inner wisdom speaks to each of us in a unique and individual

way through our dreams. The messages are specific – broadening

our awareness and correcting imbalances. They are evidence of a

 purposeful knowing and guiding self. This class will explore concepts

of Jungian Analytical Psychology as they emerge from our work with

personal dream material.
