"Dreams: Your Personal Guides to Psychological and Spiritual Growth"  

With Dr. Jean Benedict Raffa - Author & Educator

Based on her book, "Dream Theatres of the Soul", Dr. Raffa has created and will present a PowerPoint presentation that  explains how a person's night dreams address various aspects of the psyche and how to identify and work with them to acquire greater self-knowledge. It describes what she calls the five "dream theatres" of Ego, Persona, Shadow, Anima/Animus, and Self. To illustrate this reality Dr. Raffa will share five of her Big dreams and the personal meaning she extracted from them which initiated and shaped her journey into wholeness.

"Personal Narrative: Transforming Haunting Ghosts into Healing Guests"  

with Dr. Dennis Slattery

Rather than conceptualize the power of ghosts that haunt us, I offer a personal narrative of ghost energies that have shaped my life for decades. In the creation of this story, I discovered the single most central archetype that has given this ghostly presence its unlimited energy.

James Hollis's illuminating text, Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives (2013/2015), has been a major inspiration for these reflections. They led me to consider an alternative to dispelling our ghosts: inviting them in as guests. The shift from haunting ghosts to healing guests can offer a new story to live by, one that constructs our identity more fully and generously on our individuation pilgrimage.

Dennis Patrick, Ph.D. is currently Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Pacifica Graduate Institute, a Fellow of the Dallas Institute and faculty member of The Jung Platform, directed by therapist Machiel Klerk. He has also taught student inmates in a major California prison using the thought of Joseph Campbell on personal myth.
