ANIMA MUNDI: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE
Anima Mundi is the soul of the world. It is the animating spirit in all matter and nature in the same way that the soul is the animating spirit in the human being. Similar to the Anima Mundi, every dream image, sensation, location is inextricably united with spirit. When we acknowledge the living presence within the dream, we can shift our attitude toward the landscape, the creatures, the sensations, the objects, the relationships, and the activities. We can dissolve the boundaries between the self and what we perceive as “other.” We can transform our sensations and experiences by viewing the dream world from a multitude of other perspectives.
Bring your dream images alive. Make a list poem with each of the images (both animate and inanimate.) Begin each line with “I am.” Endow every image with a voice.
