Preregistration for workshops is encouraged. To learn about preregistering for the workshop, see Preregistration Policy and Form. Over a long day we will explore several key elements to Meier's approach to dreams:
- The importance of the entire dream record, including the smallest snippet of a dream
- Meier's focus on the central image of a dream and the importance of sticking to that image in the exploration of the dream
- The proposition that the amplification process resides in the process of dreaming. Each dream is a comment on what came before. The entire record is the amplification of pre- senting dreams, or of dreams signaling a change of topic.
NOTE: Bring journals, plain paper, Crayolas, or colored pencils.
To learn the key points of C.A. Meier's approach to dreamwork:
1. The entire dream record is considered in the approach to dreamwork, not just interesting dreams, or only those dreams that seem related to the therapeutic goals of the dreamer.
2. Determine the central image of the dream and in the discussion of the dream, restrict associations to that image and to the attendant feelings/emotions within the dream.
3. The process of amplification is the process of dreaming. Each dream is a comment on the dreams that came before.
