In-Person: Dreamwork for Actors and Artists

with Ken Barnett

In this workshop, participants will be engaging with fresh material from their unconscious as delivered by a dream. This potent material provides the opportunity to drop into our most intimate inner lives.

Working physically, participants will be guided to ask the thinking mind to soften in order to invite the truth held in the body to express freely.

Discover what is within you that is longing to be expressed in your creative work, and unveil the patterns of thinking or behavior that are limiting you in your capacity for full expression.

“The dream is a theater in which the dreamer is himself the scene,

the player, the prompter, the author, the producer, the public and the critic.”

Carl Gustav Jung

Illustration from “The Red Book” by C. G. Jung

What is standing in your way in your acting/writing/creative work?
What might you be holding on to that you no longer need?

By engaging with one’s own dream material, the artist learns tools that can then be applied to any script or creative effort in order to deepen the personal connection to your work. As is true with each dream, each role or project becomes a new opportunity to learn, grow, and move towards wholeness.

This course is appropriate for beginners as well as people with prior experience with Dreamwork. Participants will have the opportunity to explore a dream or a current creative project. While the workshop is designed for actors, artists of all disciplines are encouraged to attend. The intimate size of this intensive workshop enables us to establish a powerful container for exploring the unconscious material that wants to come through. Please plan to attend all sessions.
