Process Work: Dreaming While Awake

Thursday, April 1

This Jungian Society of Utah lecture is not just for psych-heads. Randee Levine and Matt Stella are seasoned practitioners of depth psychology in Salt Lake City and will share a presentation—the essence of process work—and offer practical tools to create more meaning and curiosity in life.

Psychologist Carl Jung needed to make sense of his dreams, but his curiosity went beyond the basic storytelling and shoulder shrugging. His work explored the collective unconscious—which  he claimed links every human and underlies human existence—which are experienced as symbols in dreams. Now, post-Jungian analysts believe that the dream psyche manifests itself in waking life. They say life always has a goal and that life will always seek to fulfill that goal. So, there is a reason for relationship problems or why someone broke his ankle beyond the basic, physical laws of our universe. Thus, no one is a victim of their circumstances.
