Artist Sarah Burns called the Eye of Horus Metaphysical looking for a guest speaker from their Psychics page who could “read” a dream interpretation for her work now showing at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Because I use dream interpretation in my consultations and I have been teaching about Dream Work since the early 1990’s, they knew I would be a good fit for Ms Burns! (facebook page for the event).
What is a Dream Reading?
In my course, Essential Dream Work, I talk about what dreaming is physically, through Jungian psychology, Theosophically and in a Norse traditional context. Then we choose one image to begin. The first task is to find out what level the dreamer was working in – some dreams are teachers, some are visits from ancestors, some are mundane and oriented to the direct business of the awake time. Around 9% of all dreams are prophetic and some are pure and simple fantasy release dreams!
Then we ask questions of the image such as – what part of me do you represent?
Thursday I will do a mini-lecture using her artwork to exemplify dreaming as physical, psychological, Theosophical, and in a Nordic context. Then we will choose one work and I will either read it as though it were my own image or read it as Ms Burns’ image.
On Thursday, December 19, join us for MAEP Special Guests. Sarah Burns’s “midday” and Andy Sturdevant’s “Alley Atlas” are the starting points for a fascinating discussion on dream interpretation and urban geography.(www.artsmia.org/maep)
Special Guests for the evening include:

BILL LINDEKE, geographer & writer, University of Minnesota
After a brief introduction to the exhibition, Tauring will perform dream readings of Burns’s sculpture. And Lindeke will talk about the fascinating history of Minneapolis alleys.
We’re excited that both of these well known speakers can join us so please bring your friends, family and questions! For more information about both shows, please visit the MAEP site (www.artsmia.org/maep)
