Friday Lecture: Dreams, Complexes, and the Self
The Friday night lecture will address the archetypal dimension of the dream and how that objective
dimension can get lost within the realm of one’s personal complexes. According to Dr. Conforti, “The
dream is a telling of the life we are meant to live, of a destiny awaiting our arrival, and of a union with
something far greater than we could have ever imagined. So, too, the dream tells us when we have arrived
at some dead end roads, those fits and starts that silence the call of the Self and confine us to an outdated
and undeveloped Self.”
The dream, replete with symbols, images, and metaphors, can bring us to full attention and into relation-
ship with the archetypal realm. Early pioneers of psyche spent many years studying images, fairy tales,
alchemy, and religion as ways to understand the language and contents of the Self because they understood
that while the dream affects us personally, its source is trans-personal. Often our inner demons and
complexes distort the eternal and archetypal dream images and we miss the inherent archetypalstory
contained within it. In working with dreams throughout the weekend we will take an in-depth look at the
profundity of thedream messages to understand the content contained within them.
Saturday Seminar: The Eclipse of God and the Creative
This seminar presents an understanding of what it means to work with the Objective Psyche, the realm
of the trans-personal and non-personally acquired contents of the Psyche. We will focus on the relationship
and difference between the Objective, archetypal meaning of images and the dreamer’s personal complexes
An important aspect of this seminar is for participants tolearn ways to translate the meaning of dreams in a
way that is understandable to the individual, allowing them to bring wisdom
