SPI 513 Spirituality and Dreams
Faculty: Howard Avruhm Addison, Ph.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The prophet Joel foresaw a time when God’s spirit would be manifest among us, when men and women, young and old would dream dreams and see visions (Joel 2:28). Yet, despite being heirs to rich traditions of dream work, our modern denominations give but little credence to the role dreams can play in our spiritual development. Drawing upon the insights of world religious traditions, modern psychology and contemporary neuroscience, this course will investigate how dreams can help reveal the movement of the Spirit within us. Through practical dream work techniques we will explore to how illogical or even frightening dream images can lead us and those whom we serve to greater wholeness.
