Once in a lifetime opportunity to explore Dream Analysis at Freud’s House in London from the 9th of July until the 16th of July 2017.

The-consulting-room-redBe part of an international contingent for an intensive, one-week program in the Home of Sigmund Freud where we will walk the steps where Freud lived and worked the last year of his life after his escape from the Nazi’s in Vienna. Delve into the enclave and privacy of Freud’s home and lovely magical garden where he loved to sit and contemplate dreams, life and the making of his science.  Learn what the books don’t teach.  Explore the places and principles that were until now simply part of your imagination. Walk on the same steps Freud walked on, convene in his garden with colleagues from every corner of the world as Freud did, soak up the ambience and rare opportunity to spend the week here in London .

You’ll learn from international experts as you engage in  activities focused on deepening your skills, theory and experience of Freud’s psychotherapy science.

Hosted by Sigmund Freud Museum London and Mind Body Passport’s Dr. Leslee Brown, this International Summer School program consists of lectures and theory along with self-awareness (experiential, integration), and cultural excursions. Members of the museum’s academic staff will guide our enlightening time at Freud’s house.

The  program will be woven together  in a  daily morning social dream group. Our social dream group  will provide participants with the experience of enhancing understanding of themselves, the group and analytic theory, while learning the theory, practice and application of social dreaming.

Over 100 years ago, Sigmund Freud’s pioneering work with dreams revealed a hidden world of unconscious thoughts and wishes, and Freud’s theories and methods continue to speak to mental health professionals. The purpose of this course is to provide an  understanding of Freud’s theory of dream interpretation, to explain practical techniques for use with clients, and to describe therapeutic gains obtainable with dream work, while adding in special topics surrounding dreams, art, occultism and more!
