Show synopsis "Dreaming" is the basis of human consciousness; we do it all day, every day. Subtle signs or events of particular meaning that we tend to miss, ignore, or misinterpret during waking hours become the seeds of our night dreams. These dreams, then, are often elaborations of the subtle signs that we relegate to the fringes of our consciousness. How can we learn to control this cycle, and what can we learn from this process about ourselves? Dr. Arnold Mindell asserts that in order to utilize the power of dreaming we must "catch the seeds of dreaming" while awake: we must "become aware of every moment" noticing subtle feelings before they unfold and become differentiated into the ideas and emotions that occur in night dreams, often manifesting later as symptoms of mental illness, Mindell gives dreaming new importance in the context of mystical traditions, quantum physics, and western psychology, and provides powerful dreaming applications for body work, chronic symptoms work, and relationship/group therapies.
