Exploring Lucid Dreaming and Extraordinary Dreams

Exploring Lucid Dreaming and Extraordinary Dreams

Workshop with Fariba Bogzaran, Ph.D

Lucid dreaming, or awareness in dreams is a powerful practice of awakening to the great dimensions of our creative mind. This state of consciousness can be invoked by practice or spontaneously. Lucid Dreaming is used by psychotherapists as the method to work with transpersonal experiences; nightmares, creativity and enhancing skills. Extraordinary dreams are specific categories of dreams in which impactful dreams are experienced. In this one-day workshop, Dr. Fariba Bogzaran focuses on historical, scientific, and phenomenological research on lucid dreaming as well as the current dialogue about this subject. She will discuss extraordinary dreams and how to work with them. Dr. Bogzaran will discuss her innovative and integral methods of working with dreams which she has developed over 30 years ago while providing practical and creative tools for viewing dreams.
