Our nighttime dreams are portals into the realms of the unconscious mind. Paying attention to them brings us to a higher level of consciousness, and can give profound guidance for our lives. Our group format is based on the work of psychotherapist Jeremy Taylor .
Participants are asked to keep a dream journal and to maintain confidentiality about what is shared in the group.
Dream Group Meeting Structure:
First person shares a dream
Questions (not comments) for dreamer – from anyone
3 min of silent mindful meditation
Go clockwise around circle –
Each person answers: “If it were my dream, this is the significance it would have for me….” – then others ask that person questions
When circle is complete, first dreamer reflects on responses of the others
Next dreamer shares a dream…..
