Dreamwork Group is a non-therapeutic workshop dedicated to those interested in finding what their dreams could mean. Its aim is to explore the various images, feelings, emotions, and symbols that a dream presents and evokes, while not attempting to squeeze out a single unique meaning out of the dream. This workshop might help the participants to learn more about themselves, and have a glimpse into who (and how) they are in their current state.
