In this Friday evening talk JoHanna McNamee will explore the relationships between DreamTending, Tending Psyche and the works of Carl Jung, James Hillman, and Robert Johnson. The important questions are “Who’s visiting?” and “What’s happening here?” The question is not “What does this mean?” The dream always has insights that can be brought forward into everyday life. This is the power of the dream. JoHanna will also provide examples of relevant DreamTendings she has explored with her clients.
In addition to dreams, we can tend situations in waking life such as relationship, work, and health issues. By using symbol and metaphor we can experience fresh insights and emotional responses to the stuck, resistant, as well as the painful places and chronic issues in our lives.
