Dreaming for the Collective Marilyn Schlitz

In our modern, post Freudian culture, dreaming is essentially personal. In our search for individuation, we have grown disconnected from our deeper selves, our community, our environment, and our sense of the sacred. We struggle to make sense of the subtleties of inner experience in a culture where reality is defined by that which can be physically measured. Could a fundamental source of our current cultural malaise be that we do not dream collectively? Based on a series of research studies sponsored by the Institute of Noetic Sciences, I will explore the ways in which dreams can be used to connect us to a larger whole, both locally and transpersonally.
