Dream Work — Facilitated by Cathy Kopac, PhD, DMin, GNP-BC
7:00 – 8:30 pm beginning February 10th. 6 sessions. (7-9 pm for first introductory class)
“Working with dreams” means remembering and exploring the dreams from sleep with an eye to their deeper meanings. Each one of us is uniquely blind to the deeper meanings of our own dreams, and dream work helps us see what amazing gifts are there, just below the surface of “manifest content” and obvious appearance (Jeremy Taylor). This brief statement from Jeremy Taylor provides definition and perhaps enhances the intrigue of what dream work might be all about. Join me for a short workshop where an elementary introduction will be given. Attendees will review the dream work “toolkit”, be introduced to a simple way to analyze one’s own dream and, at least, one attendee will have the opportunity to tell and “work” a dream with the group. This first class is necessary to participate in the remaining 5 sessions. Enrollment is limited to 10 participants.
Items needed: a blank journal or notebook, pen/pencil. All registrants will receive a one-page “Tool Kit” and a one-page outline sheet (participants should make several copies of the outline sheet available for themselves) via email from the facilitator. If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
UU Encounters with the Bible — Facilitated by Gary Ezzell, Eric Arellano, Jonathan Hohn
7:00 – 8:00 pm beginning March 24th. 5 sessions. (Subject to change depending on the needs of the registrants)
Our UU tradition claims the Bible as one of our sources of wisdom, but we seldom hear references to it during Sunday service. Is any of it still relevant to us? Technology has changed, but people have not. These sessions will explore some of the stories and writings that can be meaningful to those of us who have a wide variety of religious and philosophical perspectives.
The plan is to have five sessions of about one hour each. During the first, we will primarily introduce ourselves, our backgrounds, and our interests, all of which will influence the content of the next four sessions. Potential topics: Wisdom literature from the Old Testament, e.g. Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes; and Jesus’ teachings, e.g. Sermon on the Mount and the parables. We’ll be using “Understanding the Bible” by John Buehrens, a former UUA president, as a reference. If you have questions, contact email@example.com
