The world renowned psychologist Carl Jung said that a dream is like an unopened letter from the unconscious. Like a message to the soul, dreams can hold lots of creative content to fuel your writing practice. In this workshop, we will work with dream themes, plotlines and images to write poetry or mythologized short stories. Each participant is encouraged to bring their writing journals and 1-2 dreams to work with. Through Jungian-focused dream-work techniques, we will discuss dreams and amplify the symbols, images and mythological themes that emerge.
The result: some creative writing!
