We Are Meant to Create

The Creative Self as an aspect of the unconscious gifts us with wisdom. We can become enlivened by our ability to see beyond the limits of the ego, as we move with joyful expression into creating. The possibility for enriching life is magnified through the reflective exchange of dreamwork and writing.

Our time together in the DreamWriting Workshop will allow us to engage with both of these creative processes, increasing self-knowledge by first re-visiting dreams that seem to want deepening. They might be re-occurring dreams or nightmares. They are the dreams that still call to you, perhaps even since childhood. Dream language and images will guide us in the creative writing of poetry, short stories and memoir that give voice to perhaps the most significant dream of the life.

Dr. Fanny Brewster, a Jungian analyst and holds an M.F.A. in Creative Nonfiction. She is the author of African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows, Archetypal Grief: Slavery’s Legacy of Intergenerational Child Loss and The Racial Complex: A Jungian Perspective on Culture and Race. (Routledge) She is a published poet and author of dream related and American Culture journal articles. Her most recent book, currently in production is Race in the Unconscious: A Depth Psychology Perspective on Africanist Dreaming. (Routledge)
