Dream Incubation: what it is, why it’s useful and how to do it.

Online Seminar Exploring Dreams with Joan Harthan, PhD

In the proposed seminar consisting of three gatherings on zoom under the aegis of the European School of Theosophy we will focus  on the method of incubating a dream used in the Asclepions – healing sanctuaries popular in Greece and Rome from about 300BC. Also on the basic tenets of dream exploration and interpretation, as well as look at how to constructively re-engage with the dream, to use it for advice and healing.

This first seminar will touch on the method of incubating a dream used in the Asclepions – healing sanctuaries popular in Greece and Rome from about 300BC. A modification of the rituals documented in ancient texts will be explained to give participants the opportunity to perform their own incubation before next week’s seminar.

The second seminar will cover the basic tenets of dream exploration and interpretation. Dreams are gifts but often people only see the outer wrapping and, having marvelled at the packaging, discard it, never discovering what’s inside. Participants will be introduced to the hidden language of dreams and learn how to explore their own dreams using a variety of different techniques.

The third seminar will cover the importance of taking action. There’s little point doing dream work if all we do is marvel at how ingenious our dreaming mind is, pick ourselves up and carry on with our life pretending the dream never happened. We will look at how to constructively re-engage with the dream, to use it for advice and healing, and to help us decide what action could be taken to make positive life changes.

Joan has kept a daily dream journal for over thirty years, documenting almost 10,000 dreams to date. Having joined IASD in 2001, she has made presentations at international conferences in Europe and America, also contributing articles to Dreamtime, (an IASD magazine) and Lucid Dreaming Experience, (an online publication of dreaminglucid.com).

In 2011, by acting on the messages in her dreams, she gave up an academic career to become a fulltime writer—fulfilling a lifelong ambition.

In addition to the book on which these seminars are based (Working the Day Shift) she has authored a number of other books on the subject of dreaming, including ‘Working With Dreams‘, a handbook of thirty dream exploration techniques for individuals, therapists and groups.
