“An unexamined dream is like an unopened letter from God” (Talmud)
Dreams speak to us in images whose meanings are often elusive, just beyond reach. Dreams often are, and always can be, an opening into our creative spirit, whether that creativity is manifest in a painting, a collage, a sculpture, a musical composition, a poem or a memoir or even, most significantly into a creative re-imagining of ourselves. This lecture examines how dreams can and have affected the creative process and, in the process, individuation.
