An Evening With...

"A dream that is not understood remains a mere occurrence; understood, it becomes a living experience."
- Carl Jung

Keeping a dream journal and working with dreams in a dream circle can help us gain some understanding of the meaning of our dreams. In addition, we can deepen our understanding of our dreams through the visual arts. Creating and looking at art inspired by dreams can help us get in touch with the inner parts of ourselves that are represented by the dream images.  Engaging with dreams through art can intensify our understanding of dreams on an emotional level, and help us integrate this understanding in waking life.

In this program we will form a dream circle led by Annilee Oppenheimer and work with the very first dream that dream artist Janet Fox remembers having had as a child. We will then look at and discuss a piece of art that she created as an adult in response to this dream. By interacting with the dream in these ways, we will experience how a dream can continue to become alive with meaning decades after it occurred. 

This program is appropriate for both those who are new to dream work as well as for veteran dreamworkers. 

A retired lawyer, Annilee Oppenheimer enjoys exploring dreams, poetry, music, archetypal symbolism, storytelling, and active imagination as vehicles to make connections – both with our deepest selves and with others.  She is a Haden Institute certified dream group leader, and she leads dream groups.

Janet Fox is a member artist of Gallery 209 at Artists and Makers Studios 2 in Rockville, Maryland.  An encaustic and mixed-media painter, Janet explores her dreams through artistic expression.  Her art blog is
