This intimate workshop with Jungian analyst, writer, and professor Dr. Fanny Brewster on dreams, active imagination, and the creative self will begin with a short lecture. The lecture will focus on the Creative Self, drawing on the work of feminist poet Audre Lorde and others. Our continued meeting in the form of a workshop will allow us to spend time engaged in an Active Imagination process. Participants are encouraged to bring dreams, and something to write with/on.

We will cover a wide range of classical Jungian themes, with Fanny's updated race and gender critiques. With a devotion to both intellect and eros, this will be a special gathering you won't want to miss. We welcome your participation.

No previous experience in dreamwork or writing is necessary.

  • Date: June 29th, Friday morning, 9am-noon
  • Location: Inner NE Portland, address provided to registrants
  • Cost: $55 for intimate three hour workshop
