A dream that is not interpreted is like a letter that has not been opened. ~ The Talmud

Dream Work & Depth, Archetypal Psychotherapy in St. Louis
We are a part of nature and the land, of the deep and ancient stories that live in it, whether we know it consciously or not. When we become separated from our sense of place, nature, and the land, we become separated from ourselves, as well. We are far more than our thoughts, more than that tiny layer of brain cells that governs our cognitions. We are deep and complex and marvelous. All of us.
In depth work we:
Explore dreams, and access the unconscious through them.
Connect to ancient myths, stories, and "fairy tales" (if you have doubts about how profound that can be, check this out).
Begin to notice the synchronicities between dreams, nature, and what waking life presents.
Explore the role of shadow in the work, so that we may come into balance with light and shadow, ease and difficulty, and remove ourselves from the "cult of positivity" that is damaging to so many, since it's impossible to be human and never have pain and struggle.
For those who have an orientation toward spirituality, regardless of what that spirituality "is," dream and depth work is a rich field in which to encounter help, clarity, and guidance.
