Dream Analysis for Everyone
Join Jungian-based therapist, Kara Catrelle, PhD Student, MSW, LCSW, in this deeply transformative class. The Dream Analysis introductory course is for anyone who is interested in learning more about dreams personally and professionally. She takes complex dream interpretation theories and distills them into knowledge and concepts that everyone can understand and apply to their waking lives.
Why pay attention to your dreams? Throughout history our ancestors found the inner life as valuable (and sometimes more valuable) than the outer or “waking” life. Some believe our inner life is where soul lives, and soul can then speak to us through our dreams, thus, bypassing the conditioning of our ego.
Ms. Catrelle teaches the perspective of an “Inner Self” who attempts to convey a message to us that we can receive through the language of dreams. She has been analyzing dreams most of her life personally and for over 20 years professionally and has found the messages in dreams to be extremely helpful. She specializes in dream analysis, Vedic astrology, and sex therapy in her private practice in the magical and mystical mountains of Asheville, NC where she sees clients online or over the phone.

Ultimately, by paying attention to your dreams, you will begin to consciously see how your mind works which can help clarify how you feel, think, and behave in the world.
