Upcoming Tuesday Lunch Forums

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
12:30 – 2:30 pm

A lively discussion with Nancy Furlotti, Kathryn Madden and Erel Shalit. Join us in celebrating the publication of this important book.

The Dream and its Amplification unveils the language of the psyche that speaks to us in our dreams. We all dream at least 4–6 times each night yet remember very few. Those that rise to the surface of our conscious awareness beckon to be understood, like a letter addressed to us that arrives by post. Why would we not open it? The difficulty is in understanding what the dream symbols and images mean.

Through amplification, C.G. Jung formulated a method of unveiling the deeper meaning of symbolic images. This becomes particularly important when the image does not carry a personal meaning or significance and is not part of a person’s everyday life.
