Writing as a Waking Dream: Stimulating creativity and turning ideas into text.

Saturday, November 6, 2004, 10 AM - 3 PM (one hr lunch on your own)
Writing and dreams have their origin in the gold of the unconscious - weird and troubling, mysterious and wise, layered with meaning in metaphor and symbol. The messages are transcendent, inspirational, and timeless. We'll use experiential techniques and prompts to capture the insights from our unconscious that lead to creative and original writing. Topics include getting in flow, passionate writing, plunging and planning, using dreams, fantasies, and the repeating themes of our lives.

Fee: $50.00 in advance, $55. at the door

The Nature of Rage

Rage can be debilitating, dangerous, or the wellspring of change and growth. What we do with rage - ours and others' - can determine our continued suffering or our turning the energy of anger into productive action. Self-awareness about our anger can prevent us from acting out our anger instead of managing it productively and appropriately. An awareness of the warning signs of rage in others and knowledge of how to diffuse it can prevent violence in the home and in the workplace. This six-hour seminar will look at sources of rage, and handling your own rage as well as that of others.
