A high dream is what matters to you in the most meaningful way. It reflects your deepest feelings and core values. Such dreams could be said to emanate from your soul—the essential part of who you are. High dreams are often buried in our unconscious. The process of discovering, developing, or, in some instances, fine-tuning, a high dream is invaluable in surfacing what may have been submerged beneath your conscious awareness. Working with what emerges through your inner work, including grappling with the internalized oppressive messages from our many constructed inner selves, presents liberating possibilities. In this workshop we will open the possibility for understanding the importance of the fullest possible embodiment of high dreams. We will draw on inner and relational work processes and wisdom traditions to develop an increasingly fuller and wider way of seeing and living.
The emergence of your high dreams will tell you a great deal about who you have become, as well as who you authentically are beneath the layers of adaptations that were necessary at early stages of your development and that often had a discouraging and restricting effect on your movement towards growth, your fullest potential, and relational fulfilment. Imagining the self and the associated self that embodies this high dream has the potential to fire your imagination, fuel feelings of aliveness, and open your consciousness ever wider.
This workshop is designed for counsellors, psychotherapists, mindfulness practitioners, and anyone interested in consciousness development, wholeness, and relationship.

This 1 1/4 day workshop focuses on the art of identifying and facilitating our high dreams that may be buried in our unconscious—the dreaming mind. In this workshop, we will explore inner work practices and philosophy that utilizes meditation practice and its seamless integration with process-oriented therapy. Development of psychological mindedness as an integrated and fascinating part of the whole process will be demonstrated and practiced. Participants will learn to practice “inner work on your own.”
This workshop will be conducted as a collaborative learning community that practices presence and psychological mindedness. Dr. Avraham Cohen will facilitate the workshop, supported by Dr. Heesoon Bai. The day will include time in mindful attunement, contemplative and psychological teachings and demonstrations of presence and multi-dimensional connection, self and relational inquiry practice activities, and group process work. Attention will be paid to how new learnings can be integrated into your own inner work and everyday life.
Avraham and Heesoon have presented together for a number of years. They believe that relationship is a teaching in itself.
