I work with most clients in person, but sometimes I work over the phone or on Skype. We usually begin sessions with a short period of meditation. Often clients have had to rush to get to the office , or they come in with a lot of details swimming around inside. In order to work deeply, it's important to relax, and bring our focus to being present in our body, being able to notice how we are in that moment. After that, we take some time to talk about whatever is going on with the client. Then we shift the focus to the dreams. We 'work the dreams' by reentering the dream space together. We focus on what a client actually experiences in the dream and what that feels like. Sometimes, I'll invite the client to reenact pieces of the dream, making the movements she made in the dream to connect more deeply with the feeling potential of the images. Then we will spend some time reflecting on how those dream experiences relate to waking life experiences. Most of the time, the dreamer will develop a much fuller experience of the dream after we've worked on it together. Sometimes during sessions, I'll teach clients meditative techniques to help them establish a more robust connection to their bodies and feelings. Other times, if the client is in the office, we will end with a short session of Zero-Balancing to integrate the work we've done. At the end of each session, we identify a very small of piece of the dream for the client to meditate on between sessions. What's amazing is how the next dreams pick up on the themes of the homework meditation, so that the client and I develop an ongoing dialogue with the dream consciousness.
