Deep Dreaming: Finding Interconnection
through Shared Dreaming
Facilitated by Richard Russo, M.A. and Meredith Sabini, Ph.D.
Saturdays, 2–4pm, $20 per session
July 12, Sept. 13, Oct. 11, Nov. 15
Just as we can’t see the roots of a circle of redwood trees, we also don’t see the ways our individual dreams weave together in the mycelial root system of our species. But we can try to open ourselves to this level in the process we call “deep dreaming.” It begins with a period of quiet meditation that allows us to sink below the level of the quotidian. Called by our intention, dreams slowly emerge from their rhizome, not ones we’ve chosen ahead of time but ones that surprise us, dreams we may not remember, or ones from long ago. Using the “culture dreaming” method, we tell the dreams that emerge spontaneously, one at a time, for perhaps twenty minutes. Then we take a brief break, and return to hear all the dreams read again as one narrative. Their interconnectedness, and ours with all life, may reveal its mysterious presence.
Psychological Diversity: Introduction to Jung’s
Eight Types of Awareness
Saturday, July 26, 1–5pm, 4 CEs, $75
Adam Frey, MBA
In his book, Psychological Types, C. G. Jung identified eight types of consciousness—eight different ways of being aware. His typology became the basis of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, an instrument designed to help identify a person’s preferred ways of orienting.
In this workshop, MBTI® Master Practitioner Adam Frey will lead an exploration of what the eight types of awareness look and feel like. Participants will draw on their own life experience, including dream experiences, and on short, in-the-moment group exercises to learn to recognize the eight types of consciousness in themselves.
The workshop will touch on applications of psychological types to self-understanding, effectiveness, communication, relationships, and personal growth. A goal of the course is to build empathy and appreciation for how others orient differently to the world so that this natural psychological diversity can be enriching rather than undermining.
Adam Frey, MBA, is a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Master Practitioner and president of the Bay Area Association for Psychological Type and Director of Program Planning for the International Association for Psychological Type. He served as a consultant and board member to the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. He has taught psychological types to business and psychology groups in the U.S. and China and has written about psychological types for Personality Type in Depth (typeindepth.com) and the Bulletin of Psychological Type.
