Experience is not just something that happens to us. Experience is also something we cultivate and refine. With practice, we can increase our capacity for wondrous insights and delicious sensations. By learning to focus attention, break through ordinary habits, and develop a taste for even challenging experiences, we can tease the extraordinary out of ordinary life. Professional author and writing instructor Erik Davis and dream researcher Jennifer Dumpert will introduce approaches to meditation, dreamwork, and writing that can help access the extraordinary and integrate it into our lives. Erik will show how writing can become a path toward transforming and reflecting upon our own lived experience. Jennifer will introduce the Oneironauticum, an emerging approach to dreamwork that we will explore both nights of the weekend. Rather than emphasize the symbolic meaning of dreams, this form of dreamwork cultivates the visionary texture of the dream itself. Over the weekend, we will also learn how enjoyment and curiosity can become portals into richer experience.
