They can be downright weird or totally logical. Recurring or one-off experiences. Most of them we dismiss the moment we wake from them. But some of them stay with us like messengers that have something to tell us.
And it's significant that the greatest psychological investigators placed a lot of stock in them. And today, we will, too.
Today on Thinking with Somebody Else's Head, the Clarity of Dreams.
But first, one thing I've learned since moving from Canada 6 1/2 years ago to study with Norberto Keppe at his International Society of Analytical Trilogy is ... you have to be flexible. They do things differently down here. It's not like North America where we're raised with the business-like mantra, "Plan the work and work the plan." Things down here operate much more by inspiration.
And it's happening again. New inspiration that is. For the past few weeks on the program, I've been talking about our International Congress of Analytical Trilogy here in Brazil July 4 - 6, 2008. And any of you who come to join us for this great event will be invited to stay on with us at our hotel conference center for a few days after the event for some study and working sessions on Keppe's science of psycho-socio-pathology. Well, any event we hold at our hotel is phenomenal, and this will be no different. More information about that event can be found on our site at www.trilogycongress.org. And of course, as always, if you need to know more, write me at email@example.com
The new inspiration is linked to another exciting event we're organizing in the U.S. - the World Congress of Analytical Trilogy in San Diego from September 24 - 27, 2008. More information is at www.wcatus.org. So now you have your choice ... come on down here to beautiful Brazil and experience the science of Analytical Trilogy here in the center of the work and our companies and all that's going on down here. And it's a lot, believe me. Or fly to San Diego and join us there. If you need help making your choice, I can help you at firstname.lastname@example.org
One thing I do know ... with 81% of Americans in a recent CBS/NY Times poll saying the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction, it's pretty clear a new orientation is needed. And here on the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, may I suggest that Norberto Keppe's work carries on from their extraordinary initiatives. But with something these others didn't have - and that's a profound understanding of human psychopathology. Why, when we all know we should stop war and feed and educate people and stop killing and torturing people we fear, why don't we do that? Keppe's science can answer that question and give us a means to really effect change in the human condition.
But more on that in our next program. Today, dreams. Sari Koivukangas is a teacher here in Brazil who has many years of experience with students in our psycho-linguistic method of teaching. Dreams is one of her specialties.
