Join Archetypal Dreamwork practitioner and resident feeler Kezia K. on an intensive journey to trace the roots of your addictions, reactions, and general apathy: your feelings. The premise is simple: we can't heal what we don't feel. And so we will explore how to differentiate reactions, distractions, and ideas from true feelings and most importantly, do what we can to feel deeply during class. Using a variety of exercises and techniques, including guided meditation, theater of the oppressed exercises, and breath work, we'll discover together how to bring our hearts into the forefront of our lives.
All classes will be influenced by the teachings Kezia has received from master Archetypal Dreamwork teachers, including Marc Bregman, at the North of Eden organization in Monpelier, VT. Each class will focus on one 'cluster' of emotional experience and dive in head first to determine how this feeling plays out in your life. Feel free to drop in whenever the spirit moves you or if you are aware of a particular emotions that you struggle with. Class schedule is below.
Collaboration and group process will be key to this course. A major intention of this space is to empower every individual to embark on the inner journey with support. Each participant will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own feelings and reactions during class and practice vulnerability by giving voice any concerns, questions, ideas, or issues as they arise. The hope is that through this process we can create an environment where each person is learning from every other person, the foundation of true discovery and deep learning.
Classes will be held each Tuesday from 6:30-8:00pm with some exceptions, beginning October 15th. We'll be meeting at the newly founded Haus House, a healing and community space in the Irish Channel. The address is 3219 Annunciation St., between Harmony and Pleasant. The class is sliding scale $5-$10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
PLEASE do not hesitate…for any reason…I really mean it…to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas surrounding this course! My email is KeziaVida.K@gmail.com , or my cell is 917-673-5807. Looking forward to seeing you on Oct. 15th

Archetypal Dreamwork is a therapeutic technique that uses dreams to uncover the deepest, most honest parts of ourselves. This unique method of dream exploration was developed over 40 years ago by master teacher Marc Bregman. The work reveals, hilariously and lovingly, the blocks that prevent you from fully manifesting your true self. Dream experiences create a container for you to feel supported and loved as you face into the darkest aspects of your psyche, the pain, the fear, and the trauma. With courage and commitment, everyone has the opportunity to recognize harmful patterns and feel the support needed to make a different choice in life. The work does not require adherence to any dogma, belief system, or faith, nor does it conflict with any established system. Instead it invites you to discover for yourself what it means to be spiritually connected. Every night, your dreams offer you the opportunity to connect to the deepest part of yourself and then to experience your waking life with more feeling and sensuality and depth. Are you willing to take the first step?
In this work, your dreams take precedence over any ideas you or I might have about you or what you need help with. Everything we do is driven by the dream's guidance. This separates dreamwork from traditional types of counseling where issues can arise when counselors are judgmental or patients self-diagnose. We let the dreams tell us. By the same token, you are the expert on the experiences in your dreams and I strive to empower all of my clients to discover what the connection to their inner selves means to them. Doing the work means developing a personal practice of being willing to face into your own failings and having the courage to feel the hardest feelings inside of yourself so that you can heal and know what it is to love and to feel loved. I have only the utmost respect for anyone who is interested in taking this journey and as an analyst my goal is to do everything I can to support you every step of the way.
