Our ancestors believed in ghosts, and perhaps they were not far off the mark as so much of daily life is driven by invisible psychic forces, archaic agendas, and imperious admonitions and prohibitions, all the more powerful because they operate unconsciously. What are the features of such hauntings,and how might we gain some further foothold on a more conscious conduct of life?

In the daily practice of psychotherapy, clients present with repetitious behaviours, images and dreams which have their roots in early experiences, traumas and attitudes unconsciously received from significant persons in their past.

   Therapists struggle to identify and neutralize these psychological interferences that do so much to hamper their clients in their life projects and relationships. 

 Understanding the qualities and features of these “hauntings” is the first step in addressing those centres

outside the ego.

     In this workshop we will discover how "hauntings" can be identified through dreamwork and analysis.
