By learning how to cherish and contemplate the images in our dreams, we can find a new way to wholeness and health. Join us for an evening of exploring and learning about the help our dreams can offer.
Archetypal dreamwork, which Rodger terms Natural Dreamwork, is a powerful process of working with dreams for personal and spiritual growth. It has roots in Jung’s basic approach towards dreams as a very natural experience. Instead of seeing dreams as riddles to be solved, the emphasis is always on what the dreamer feels in the dream. The feelings in dreams are compressed into the images and presences we encounter.
Rodger Kamenetz believes it is not too late to reclaim the lost power of our nightly visions. Author of History of Last Night’s Dream: Discovering the Hidden Path to the Soul, Kamenetz fearlessly delves into this mysterious inner realm and shows us that dreams are not only intensely meaningful, but hold essential truths about who we are. In the end, each of us has the choice to embark on this illuminating path to the soul.
Rodger Kamenetz is an award-winning poet, author and teacher. Of his ten books, his best known is The Jew in the Lotus, the story of rabbis making a holy pilgrimage through India to meet with the Dalai Lama. His account of their historic dialogue became an international bestseller, prompting a reevaluation of Judaism in the light of Buddhist thought. Now in its 35th printing overall, The Jew in the Lotus is a staple of college religion courses. The New York Times called it a “revered text.” A PBS documentary followed, and a sequel, Stalking Elijah, won him the National Jewish Book Award for Jewish Thought.
