About This Class

“Last night, as I was sleeping,
I dreamt, marvelous illusion!
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.

And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.” (Antonio Machado)

Everybody dreams. You included. Modern culture ignores dreams but this visually-entertaining class shows you why not to! See how dreams contribute to every aspect of culture, technology, arts and more. Dream expert, Ron Masa, Ph.D., guides you through case studies and dreamlike sequences and lush visuals to an appreciation of the riches available in your dreams. 

This segment (Part 1) is NOT a class on How To Interpret your own dreams.

Dreams have much in common with the unconscious wisdom accessed through the I Ching. Carl Jung was a master of both. You can view my class here:  How The I Ching Saved My Life: Meet Carl Jung's Favorite Oracle To Access Your Own Inner Wisdom
