Dream Analysis Campfire for Students

One of the CAMPFIRES @ USC

Our nighttime dreams are portals into the realms of the unconscious mind. Paying attention to them brings us to a higher level of consciousness, and can give profound guidance for our lives.  Our group format is based on the work of psychotherapist Jeremy Taylor .

Participants are asked to keep a dream journal and to maintain confidentiality about what is shared in the group.

Dream Group Meeting Structure:

First person shares a dream

Questions (not comments) for dreamer – from anyone

3 min of silent mindful meditation

Go clockwise around circle –

Each person answers:  “If it were my dream, this is the significance it would have for me….” – then others ask that person questions

When circle is complete, first dreamer reflects on responses of the others

Next dreamer shares a dream…..
