Exploring the Feminine Through Dreams and Dream Art

Led by Janet Fox


Today we will discuss how to honors dreams through art, to create with heated, pigmented bees' wax, often layering in fibrous and colorful papers, fabric, ink, and found materials. After selecting a dream, we will focus on something calling out for our attention. Shifting into the "artist's flow," we often loses track of time while intuitively painting, carving, scraping, filling, smoothing, and buffing, building fabulous contrasts and texture, and honoring the dream. Reflecting on the completed art provides even more insight and further honors the dream.


Janet Fox is originally from the Midwest. She began painting in the late 1990's, studying under Indianapolis- and D.C.- area artists. For many years, she has explored dreams on her own and in small groups. Janet is an active member of the Montgomery Art Association and a member of International Encaustic Artists. In addition to painting, she is a freelance writer, editor, content and project support professional.

OUR MISSION

The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
