Animal Symbolism in Dreams
Greg Bogart, Ph.D., MFT
Friday, September 27, 3–7 pm, $60 general / $85 4CEs
Our unconscious life as humans appears to include memories of our prehistoric ancestors, animal species, plants, and rocks. All of these connect us with the earth’s geological, botanical, and animal evolutionary pathways. Our dreams access these deeper strata of our being, and dreams containing animal symbolism are especially evocative and enlivening. Understanding these can facilitate our personal healing, liberate creative energies, and connect us to instinctual wisdom. In this workshop, Greg will present examples of dreams that reflect the somatic, emotional, and spiritual meaning of various animal species. Participants are welcome to bring in dreams for discussion.
