MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT DREAM: A JOURNAL EXERCISE

Create a fairy tale based on your dream. Use the theme of the solstice to structure the movement of your story. Move the story toward the place where the momentum of the dream or your understanding of it may come to a standstill- a place that is still and unknown. Use all the heroic figures, the magic and wizardry you can muster up to find a shift in momentum where there is an illumination, a light that leads you to a mythic end.

DREAMS OF THE FATHER: A TEN MINUTE DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

Dreams about fathers are often about authority, traditional values, religious philosophy, and wisdom. They can be about will power, a warlike spirit or the ability to be strong. Father dreams can focus on responsibility, discipline and domination.
A mythic father figure might represent intellect, reason, action, power, energy, assertiveness, fortitude, courage; or a need for safety, guidance, support protection and security.
Conversely, the father figure can represent aggressiveness, righteousness, judgment, punishment, betrayal or anger. The father figure can discourage our attempts at independence. He can undermine our self reliance and self esteem by making us submissive or putting constraints on our autonomy.
Write a letter to yourself. If every aspect of the father image is an aspect of yourself, how have you fathered yourself?
