Dreamwork For Coaches
Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 10:00 AM until 11:30 AM
Join us on Tuesday, February 12, 2019
Dreamwork for Coaches
The Dreamwork webinar is designed to provide coaches with the confidence to explore a new aspect of the coach/client relationship utilizing core competencies that they already possess.
Participants will get an overview of:
- How to use the basic coaching tools of active listening and asking powerful questions to help the client access the message of their dream through the co-creative process.
- How to help their clients remember and document their dreams.
- The context of understanding how dreams communicate with the rational mind.
- The roles of the Dreamer (the client) and the Listener (the coach) in working with dreams
- How to demystify the process of working with dreams through the use of imagination. Active Imagination allows the coach and client to re-enter a dream and further explore the animals and characters that may appear.
- How to understand the emotional arc of a dream, identify where the greatest energy is and work with the client to explore how that informs their waking life.
- Understand that some dreams are diagnostic in that they demonstrate a limiting belief or behavior (sometimes these appear as repetitive dreams and sometimes as nightmares) and some dreams are prescriptive, suggesting that we pay attention to an experience or intuitions.
Approximately half the class will be a discussion of using dreams in the context of the coaching paradigm and the second half will be a coaching demonstration so you can witness the power of working with dreams in your own coaching practice.
We will be doing 1-2 demonstrations, so bring your dreams to the class if you want to experience this first hand!
