Marc Bregman founded North of Eden Archetypal Dreamwork 40 years ago in Vermont. Together with his wife Christa Lancaster they work with individuals around the world, and in the U.S. with groups at Esalen, Kripalu, and elsewhere, leading seekers along the soul path of the dream illustrated by Carl Jung in his Red Book. Among other books on Archetypal Dreamwork, they have written Flesh Off the Bone: Dream Descent through Past-Life Trauma. Marc is currently working on a book focused on Jung entitled Carl and Me: Teachings from The Red Book.
Christa Lancaster & Marc Bregman
The journey to your soul’s essence is as close as last night’s dream.
Dreams don’t want to be understood; they want to shift the very ground you’re standing on. They don’t speak to your intellect or conscious mind; they speak to your soul, through feelings – devotion, terror, joy, pain, tenderness, ecstatic sexual union. The feelings in dreams are the path to reclaiming your child soul and living it in your everyday life.
In this experiential workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to step into the dream – your own or others’ – to feel the gifts and teachings of the unconscious in a powerful enactment process called String Work (for the use of strings to show the dreamer’s relationship to various dream elements). This exercise is not conceptual or esoteric. Dreams are both practical and profound, addressing everything from the minutiae of our lives to our relationships, secrets, histories, even past lives, to help unravel the threads that keep us trapped in familiar but unproductive patterns of behavior and relationship. Dreams can introduce you to the spiritual glory of the soul waiting beyond those patterns.
