Dream Workshop: The Healing Power of Dreams

Throughout history, our own dreams have provided a rich, very personal resource for problem solving, inspiration, creativity and insight.  Participants will learn to ways to use their dreams as a source of information and inspiration about themselves and possible difficulties in relationships, problems relating to work or artistic expression, or problems of a spiritual nature.  In this one-day workshop, I will introduce participants to basic tools to access this natural resource and offer plenty of hands-on practice using participants’ dreams.

“Karen Bonner is a masterful guide to the world of dreams. She hands you a set of keys that can unlock the messages waiting in the characters and images of your dreams – messages from God and from your own untapped wisdom.  A day with Karen will awaken you to a rich resource of spiritual growth.”                                                                                                                                                                                                           Rebecca Youngblood of the Center for Ministry

Myers-Briggs Personality Type Workshops

Where do you put your attention?  Where do you get your energy?  How do you take in information?  How do you make decisions?  How do you interact with the outer world?  Would it be helpful to you to know the answers to these questions?

The Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicatior is an inventory of psychological type based on the theories of Carl G. Jung.  It can identify your preferences of attention and energy, intake of information, decision making and interacting with the outer world.  It measures these preferences on the four axes of Extrovert-Introvert, Sensate-Intuitive, Thinking-Feeling and Judging-Perceiving.  Knowing your preferences and the preferences of those around you can foster understanding and cooperation between couples, in families and in the workplace.

Here is what some participants have said about a recent MBTI workshop:

“If you are in the people business, I consider this a necessity – if you are married, even more so!”  Amy Head of Amy Head Cosmetics

“Karen’s presentation captured my attention and has introduced to me a whole new world of ideas that I can’t wait to explore!”  Kimberly Shawrer


2019 Winter Dream Conference at Gray Center!  Friday night, Feb.22 – Introduction to Dream Work with Karen Bonner. All day Saturday, Feb. 23 with Jerry Wright! Group Dream Work Saturday night and Sunday morning, Feb. 24.  Here’s the link to register.

Dr. Wright’s presentation: The Creative Unconscious and Her Many Manifestations
This presentation by Dr. Wright will address the fecund unconscious that is always birthing and inviting us to be midwives for the unfolding of our lives, individually and collectively.  Special attention will be given to nighttime dreams, daytime projective phenomena, and archetypal images that result in religions and religious doctrines and dogmas.  Drawing on the rich analytical psychology of C. G. Jung and various religious and mystical traditions, Dr. Wright will offer practical suggestions for attending dreams, projections that color all relationships, and numinous experiences that seek us out rather continuously.  Advanced knowledge of Jungian psychology is not required to be a full participant in the conference.
New to dream work?  Not sure what an archetype is?  Or a numinous experience?  Join us Friday night for a fast and fun introduction to Jung’s model of the psyche, a map to the source of dreams plus a cheat-sheet of Jungian terms to enrich your weekend experience!  Then stay with us Saturday night and Sunday morning to practice what we’ve learned using projective dream work methods in group dream work!
