This webinar focuses on the relationships between dreams and creativity. In a Power Point show, Richard Szuster
, M.D., a psychiatrist and Mind Mirror owner based in Hawaii, looks at historical examples of dream creativity and reflects on the neurophysiology of waking, dreaming and the creative process. Next he takes the viewer through an unprecedented case series study he conducted on the Mind Mirror 6 using Embodied Imagination (EI). Developed by the Jungian psychoanalyst Robert Bosnak, EI is a novel method of working with dreams in a hybrid state of waking awareness which involves direct engagement with dream images (not to be confused with lucid dreaming, which occurs in sleep). This fascinating program is the first empirical evaluation of the neurophysiology of EI along with its impact on the creative process. See how Dr. Szuster
used the Mind Mirror and its statistical analytics to map EI's success in helping his subjects clear blocks to their creative endeavors—and, along the way, further awaken their awareness.
