DREAMS DOJO with Ingrid Rose and Lynn Lobo
The Japanese word ‘dojo’ means a place to practice, traditionally the martial arts. In this Dreams Dojo we will practice together and explore the world of dreams and dreamwork.
Join Ingrid and Lynn for an 8-week dojo practicing dreamwork together and addressing questions such as:
- why work with dreams
- where do they come from
- do they have useful information for us
- how do we unfold their guidance
Time: 4 – 5pm (16:00 – 17:00) PST
Dates: October: 20, 27, November: 3, 10, 17, 24 and December: 1, 8
Cost: $240, $160 or $80 (Sliding scale – pay what is fair for you)
In this 8-week dojo take the opportunity to enter the dreaming that dream figures, images and experiences conjure up for us. Not only will we be meeting dreamlike parts of ourselves and our world, but we will be learning how to familiarize ourselves with the tools and techniques available through process-oriented methods to unravel the deeper layers of dreams in order to benefit from their guidance and integrate that into our everyday lives.
Participants will be introduced to the course through videos detailing basic theory and methods. Each week, meeting online, we will go deeper into the practice of dreamwork focusing on various ways in which to work with dreams. We will be offering exercises, techniques to work with our own and others’ dreams, demonstrations, and practice. Each one hour will focus on a different dreamwork method providing an opportunity to practice various dreamwork skills and techniques.
Each class is one hour in duration. Classes will be recorded and available until December 31st.

Ingrid Rose Ph.D Dipl.PW
Ingrid’s guiding inspiration for her life work stems from her history of growing up in South Africa, where as a child, perceiving the injustice around her, she decided early on to devote herself to individual and social change. Ingrid has been in private practice for more than 35 years working with a large range of presentations, as well as being a clinical supervisor and international group facilitator. She has taught at college level, and has had extensive experience teaching Processwork to many groups in Portland, Oregon and all over the world. Ingrid has a love of dreamwork appreciating the deep insights dreams bring for personal and collective development. She has a long history of yoga and meditation practice and a strong interest in shamanism, adding to the depth of her work.
Processwork is a cross-disciplinary approach that focuses on the potentially meaningful flow of inner and outer signals that can be observed in individuals, communities, and groups. Processwork facilitation techniques offer methods and skills to work with behaviors, feelings, interactions, expression and inner experiences in order to elicit meaning and unexpected solutions from difficulties and disturbance.
