This course provides a foundation for an integral approach to dreams and dreamwork, in both theory and practice. We explore traditional and contemporary approaches to dreams including a number of indigenous, psychological, and scientific theories. We consider dreams not only from the vantage point of the self, but also from their wisdom regarding relationships, our socio-cultural sphere, and living more sustainably. We inquire about the transformative role of dreams within an enactive and participatory framework. Students will engage in creative and experiential practices that address somatic, phenomenological, and spiritual dimensions from an integral perspective.
