Alan’s approach to dreams is viewing them as one of the most spontaneous expressions of human existence, every aspect of them is a personal road to self-discovery. In this highly experiential workshop, you’ll examine the practice of working with the meaning of dreams from a phenomenological standpoint

Learn about narrative enquiry as an entry point to dream work.

Look at techniques for the ‘here and now’ exploration of dreams.

Draw on insights from metaphor-based practice.

Explore how to work with dreams within this non-interpretative framework with live work demonstrations.
