Drop-in Dream Groups, Creative Writing Classes, and Writing With Dreams

 Offered by Laura K. Deal, Ph. D.

Dream Groups

Are you curious about the images that appear in your dreams? Haunted by nightmares? These groups will explore dreams in a safe, comfortable environment, using the Group Projective Dream Work method developed by Rev. Dr. Jeremy Taylor. All levels of experience are welcome. Dreams will be chosen by pulling names from a basket. Participants have the option not to put their names in.

Creative Writing Classes

In these classes we’ll invite our creativity to play. Using a variety of prompts, we’ll explore prose and poetry, fiction and memoir. Some pieces will be silly, others serious. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to share their work.  The focus is on fun, and the rules are set in

play-dough! All levels of experience are welcome. Previous participants have found that writing blocks vanish and their creativity flows more easily in other pursuits as well after these classes. Please bring a journal or notebook and pen or pencil.

Writing With Dreams

In these sessions, we’ll use writing prompts to explore dream symbols. Some symbols will be offered anonymously by the group, and in some you’ll work with your own symbols.
