‘Dream tending’ subject of Friends of Jung lecture in Del Mar
Working with dreams plays a large role in Jungian psychology. In an upcoming Friends of Jung lecture, “Dream Tending,” presenter Steven Aizenstat, Ph.D. will describe a method of working with dreams that considers dream images as “living images.”
The subject of Aizenstat’s lecture, “Dream Tending,” as described in FOJ’s newsletter, offers the possibility of listening deeply to the voices of the dream images themselves as they come forward to offer their insights and perspective.
Aizenstat is a clinical psychologist and founding president of Pacifica Graduate Institute. He is also a marriage family therapist, a credentialed public schools teacher and counselor, and author of numerous publications.
In his book, “Dream Tending,” Aizenstat describes multiple applications of dream work in relation to health and healing, nightmares, the “World’s Dreams,” relationships, and the creative process.
The FOJ lecture will be held at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 20 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 334 14th Street, Del Mar. (Carpooling recommended.) Cost is $10 for students with ID, $15 for FOJ members and seniors 65 and older, and $20 for nonmembers.
