    Dream Analysis: Dreaming with Freud 

Freud's House London
26 CE hours July 8-15

DREAM ANALYSIS: "Dreaming with Freud"

Freud called Interpretation of Dreams the ‘Royal Road’ to the study of the Unconscious. In this seminar the group will learn about the structure of Freud’s theory and will investigate Freud’s house itself as a dream, exploring what it might tell us about Freud as a person and the kind of project he developed. We will also consider Freud’s use of dreams in analysis,  
and the relation between dreams and premonition.

Be part of an international contingent for an intensive, one-week program in the Home of SIgmund Freud where we will walk the steps where Freud lived and worked the last year of his life after his escape from the Nazi's in Vienna. Delve into the enclave and privacy of Freud's home and lovely magical garden where he loved to sit and contemplate dreams, life and the making of his science.  Learn what the books don’t teach.  Explore the places and principles that were until now simply part of your imagination. Walk on the same steps Freud walked on, convene in his garden with colleagues from every corner of the world as Freud did, soak up the ambience and rare opportunity to spend the week here in london .

You’ll learn from international experts as you engage in  activities focused on deepening your skills, theory and experience of Freud's psychotherapy science.  

Hosted by Sigmund Freud Museum London and Mind Body Passport’s Dr. Leslee Brown, this International Summer School program consists of lectures and theory along with self-awareness (experiential, integration), and cultural excursions. Members of the museum's academic staff will guide our enlightening time at Freud's house.

The  program will be woven together  in a  daily morning social dream group. Our social dream group  will provide participants with the experience of enhancing understanding of themselves, the group and analytic theory, while learning the theory, practice and application of social dreaming.

Over 100 years ago, Sigmund Freud's pioneering work with dreams revealed a hidden world of unconscious thoughts and wishes, and Freud's theories and methods continue to speak to mental health professionals. The purpose of this course is to provide an  understanding of Freud's theory of dream interpretation, to explain practical techniques for use with clients, and to describe therapeutic gains obtainable with dream work, while adding in special topics surrounding dreams, art, occultism and more!

Archetypal dreamers such as Jacob and Joseph had a sense of destiny imparted to them in their dreams. As such, the dream has often been seen as a challenge to the epistemological categories of philosophers; how do we know whether we are awake or asleep?  What does such uncertainty mean for the status of our knowledge?
Situating the dream in the context outlined above, this workshop will explore the philosophical response to dream states, from Plato and Aristotle, through Descartes to Schopenhauer and beyond...
