The Royal Road: Dreams, Dreaming and Personal Myth
With Lezlie Kinyon, PhD
Dreams are the Royal Road to the unconscious. Dreams are a language of myth and symbol uniquely your own and provide a well of creativity and wisdom to draw upon for self-learning, growth and to inspire us in our lives.
A workshop in dreams, dreaming & creativity: Hands-on, experiential, fun/serious using myth, symbol, ritual, and your creative ability for expression and self-exploration.
My work is based in the research of artist and researcher Dr. Maria Volchenko and hat of Drs. Stanley Krippner, David Feinstein, Jean Houston, and Allan Combs, leaders in the fields of dreams and creativity studies. Anyone interested in dreams and dreaming is welcome! This work has also proven itself to be very useful for psychology and consciousness studies students, as well as writers, musicians, and artists of many varieties and "just ordinary folk" who are interested in their dreams. It is very magical and very powerful. Participants come away with a "tool-kit" of sorts to assist in understanding and using their dreams for understanding their inner symbolic language and utilize this understanding for growing as a human being and for creative expression.
