“On paper the interpretation of a dream may look arbitrary, muddled, and spurious; but the same thing in reality can be a little drama of unsurpassed realism. To experience a dream and its interpretation is very different from having a tepid rehash set before you on paper. Everything about this psychology is, in the deepest sense, experience; the entire theory, even where it puts on the most abstract airs, is the direct outcome of something experienced.”
C. G. Jung, "On the Psychology of the Unconscious."

Dream groups are devised to give those people who may not want to pursue a personal analysis the opportunity to explore their dreams alongside others, in a supervised and gentle manner.
Ideally, a dream group is comprised of 6-8 people who meet weekly for two hours to discuss their dreams in a safe and considerate atmosphere led by both Howard Tyas and Karen Hodges. In a typical dream group session, each participant is given a chance to share a dream, after which one or two dreams are explored in depth. The weekly meetings continue for six weeks. The cost is $240.00 and is payable at the first meeting.
Dream group participants have the advantage of hearing many reflections and perspectives on a dream, although it is the dreamer who ultimately determines the dream's meaning for him- or herself.
