Conforti (lecture): Dreams: Expressions of Eternal Wisdom
Abiding in a domain that transcends conscious perception, dreams provide an objective and meaningful portrayal of our lives. Rather than simply retelling our past, dreams offer an intimation of a life waiting to be lived, an orientation into this new world, and a way to traverse its waters. In working with dreams, we embark on a journey to discover the wisdom residing in the psyche. The universal themes of redemption, birth, death, love, career, and destiny are clearly expressed in our dreams through the same archetypal images found in the worldís wisdom tales and sacred stories.
Using illustrations from actual dreams and emphasizing their archetypal dimension, Dr. Conforti will discuss ways to understand the images and symbols found in our own dreams. Examples include finding objective meaning and discovering universal images, leading toward the development of a truly spiritual approach to life.
Michael Conforti, Ph.D, is a Jungian psychoanalyst, and is a founder and Director of the Assisi Institute. He has been a faculty member at the CG Jung Institute-Boston, and the CG Jung Foundation in New York. He is actively investigating the workings of archetypal fields. Dr. Conforti lectures internationally on Archetypal Pattern Analysis and applies his work to government institutions, business, and the film industry. His publications include: Field, Form and Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature & Psyche and Threshold Experiences: The Archetypes of Beginnings.
