Sleep on it! - The Practice of Dream Incubation

Dream incubation has been practiced throughout the world since ancient times. In many cultures, specific rituals were used to enhance ones ability to solve problems and to receive divine guidance through dreams. Today, many people continue to use dream incubation techniques as a vital part of their creative process. In this salon, Sheila McNellis Asato will introduce the practice of dream incubation and lead us through a series of exercises that will stimulate the imagination and show how we can welcome the wisdom of the dreaming mind to help us with problems from waking life. At the end of the salon, Sheila will take us through a guided imagery to practice our new skills before going home to sleep on it!

Brian Feldman, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst “Individuation, Identity, and the Self: A Jungian and Post-Jungian View of Development Through the Life Cycle?

TONIGHT!! Friday night, October 13, 2006

Macalester College, Carnegie Hall, Room G-6
7:30 to 9:30 PM (Registration begins at 7:00 PM)
Members: $15.00 Non-Members: $20.00 Students: $10.00

This most unusual lecture will offer us a different perspective on the origin of Jung’s theories of individuation, identity, and Self. Dr. Feldman will discuss Jung’s personal experiences and cultural context and the role they played in the formulation of his theories. He will show slides of some places and spaces important to these connections. He will also discuss the post-Jungian theories of Michael Fordham, renowned British child analyst, and how they extended and expanded Jung’s original formula-tions. Fordham was an editor of Jung’s collected works and had an intimate knowledge of Jung and his theories-- which he shared with Dr. Feldman while he was the latter’s supervisor and mentor.
