You might be amazed at how much insight you can get about your dreams by drawing them! Are your images scrunched together? Are key figures somehow missing from your drawing? All these features can be offerings from the unconscious into the topic of the dream. Katherine speaks with author and dream group leader Walter Berry about how to use drawing to extract meaning from your dreams. It’s a lively discussion with lots of real-life examples. No need to be a fine artist, in fact, formal training can be an impediment to accessing the subconscious in this way. Stick figures and scribbles are welcome, and all have the potential to lead us to our natural sense of awe.
We finished with a call from Bambi Corso who shared a beautiful dream that opened her up to a feeling of awe and a sense of her own potency.
