“An unexamined dream is like an unopened letter from God” (Talmud)

Dreams speak to us in images whose meanings are often elusive, just beyond reach. Dreams often are, and always can be, an opening into our creative spirit, whether that creativity is manifest in a painting, a collage, a sculpture, a musical composition, a poem or a memoir or even, most significantly into a creative re-imagining of ourselves.   This lecture examines how dreams can and have affected the creative process and, in the process, individuation.

Julie Bondanza, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and a diplomate Jungian analyst who trained at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York, where she was Director of Training, a job she also held with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts. She has taught extensively in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, as well as for various Jung societies across the country. Presently she serves the board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York and continues to serve as its program chair, a post she has held for many years. Dr. Bondanza practices in Takoma Park and lives in Washington, D.C.
