This free on-line session will be a chance to discuss and try out waking dream practice with the author of Waking Dreams: Imagination in Psychotherapy and Everyday Life’

Allan Frater will give an overview of the ideas, strategies and applications of waking dream practice presented in his book, including:

  • the healing, transformative and creative benefits of imaginative life
  • how to notice, validate and enhance the activity of images in everyday life and work
  • the basic principles of waking dream practice
  • an image-centric approach to life as an on-going ‘eyes-wide-open’ waking dream
  • how memories and future fantasies are waking dreams
  • how fractal geometry helps transform repeating stories of self and world
  • the relevance of waking dream practice to art-based and ecotherapy approaches
  • an ecological alternative to mind-as-machine metaphors of change

The format will be a mixture of slideshow presentation and discussion, with waking dream demonstrations and some optional exercises to try out the ideas and practices.

The evening works as a stand-alone event and will also serve as a taster session for those interested in attending the ‘Waking Dreams’ on-line course.
