WHO SHALL SURVIVE TO ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION, TRAUMATIC MIGRATIONS, CLIMATIC CHANGE, WARS ?
INVESTIGATION OF COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH DREAMS AND SHARING TOGETHER
Conductor Maurizio Gasseau, University of Valle d’Aosta – Italy
We had strong transformations in many countries: economic crisis, traumatic migrations, unemployment, climatic change, environmental disasters, terrorism, wars! How is the Anima Mundi?
We will share together dreams, memories and expectations to investigate personal and collective unconsciousness reactions to these phenomena and what suggestions the wisdom of dreams will give us.
The conductor will present new warm up techniques – suitable for transcultural work – integrating Moreno’s sociometry and Jungian active imagination exercises. He will demonstrate the dream incubation technique according to the ancient medicine of Asclepion and the utilization of opening and closing rituals to contain the unconsciousness force and elaborate collective trauma. Psychodrama can be used to create a safe place and paths of change for the most severe traumatization. Psychodrama creates a place to act out unprocessed trauma within the containment of therapy in order to stop the obsessive repetition of the past. Jungian psychodrama can help to play traumatic experience trough symbolic representations and the wisdom of dream-play. Often victim of trauma split out their feelings and in the play it is important to play the role of the heart or the role of the feeling of the protagonist to integrate the emotional dimension. Two or three dreams will be played. Dreams convey the transformative wisdom of the unconscious, allowing emotionaly charged material to become easly accessibile to the consciousness, activating intrapsychic and intersubjective change. The group will take place within a ritualistic framework, creating a safe space to advance personal and social healing. After the final sharing, there will be an observation which will communicate the sense of the dreams will try to connect individual themes to the group’s collective unconsciousness as well as to the transcultural themes.
