You want more clarity on your path. You have an underlying sense of purpose that drives you forward, a spiritual yearning.
Or maybe you want to learn more about yourself, listen to your intuition, and understand more about yourself, your desires, and what you really need to do to get to where you want to go in your life.
What is the next step? How do I release the ties from the past so that I can do my work in the world, to really grow, to move forward? What is the future I’m destined for?
The dream maker offers you clarity on the past, the present, and the potential future.
Working with dreams is a deeper way to improve your quality of life and align with your future goals.
Images from your dreams are living symbols, carrying with them lost treasures and power, waiting for you to claim them. These symbols are pregnant with possibility.
They are presenting you with the opportunity for insight.
You are ready to level up.
It is time to open the door to your dreams; to know yourself in a way you’ve hoped for.
No art experience needed.
Group will be led by Maggi Colwell, who has a master’s degree in art therapy and has a master’s level dream pattern analysis certificate. She continues her personal work in her own dream exploration in Jungian Analysis and is a training candidate at the CG Jung Institute Zurich.
Dreams speak through images and the visual centers of our brains. Exploring through art can help connect the parts of the brain that understand visual processing with our conscious, more linear, verbal centers.
Maggi’s dream group offered me profound insights into my struggles and psyche. Maggi was shining lights on seemingly confusing symbols and situations in my dreams. I have discovered many things about myself. I also learned so much more about symbolism and archetypes. Each class was like an adventure to our subconscious. We also did tons of Art in these sessions, and it was therapeutic to me, I never thought I could draw!! If you have intense dreams with lots of visuals and emotions, or simply want to learn to depict your own dreams, I would highly recommend Maggi’s dream group. -A
Ever find yourself having repetitive dreams, vivid, or odd, or specific dreams and you’d like to know more about the message behind them? I’ve been having all of the above since I retired (yes, two years ago!!!) and they’d become like nightmares. As fate would have it, I met Maggi Colwell and wow! They have made everything make so much more sense. I “get” the waking perseverations as well as the sleeping ones. I see messages in so many new ways thanks to our work together. I can’t recommend the work they do to integrate all of your Selves into you. Worth every minute. Worth every penny. -K

What is an art therapy dream group?
This group will be starting on October 11 and meeting online, twice a month, for at least 8 sessions. Groups will be a small, intimate setting with a max of 8 members. The group will include the following:
Lessons about understanding your dreams including techniques for a deeper dream practice, different aspects of dreams, and art prompts. Get your burning questions answered about dreams.
Art making in group to process the content and dream images.
Group discussion and member support for concerns brought up from the dream content. Group incubation of dreams creates the magic that the whole is more than it’s individual parts. Minds working together connect to more possibilities from the psyche.
Recommended resources for further exploration and study.
I am NOT an artist! I can’t draw a straight line! Will this work for me?
Yes! No artistic talent or experience needed. The art is not about making a pretty picture in the end. It is a way to process using your hands, the visual centers of the brain, and engage in creative problem solving. It helps you to experience symbolism in ways you wouldn’t through only thinking or talking about it.
The topics covered will be as follows for the first 8 lessons.
Introduction to the World to Dreams: Creating Sacred Space – Inviting your Dream maker and Keeping a Dream Journal
The Beginning-Understanding the Archetypal Threshold
Symbols and the Transcendent Function
Working with Complexes
Shadow Work in Dreams

Anima/Animus/Animum -Internal Guide to the Depths
With archetypal art therapy and dream pattern analysis we look at your internal symbol sets together to make sense of where your internal compass is telling you to go.
Maggi Colwell is a Jungian oriented art therapist in private practice. She specializes in working with overachieving women who consider themselves people-pleasers, perfectionists, and caretakers. Maggi takes her clients further in therapy by utilizing a depth therapy approach. Clients resolve regrets, make sense of the past, and get control over how past experiences are affecting current situations. Maggi works with clients to create individualized treatment for each client that goes beyond dry, manualized programs. This approach utilizes theories of Carl Jung in which the images from clients’ artwork and dreams are used to inform the course of therapy as an effective way to treat trauma and express complex emotions.
Depth art psychotherapy treats trauma by engaging with the visual and emotional centers of the brain. Persistent and repetitive nightmares can change with this treatment approach so that clients can metabolize these nightly messages rather than running from these scary symptoms.
In therapy, Maggi helps clients become more comfortable with physical symptoms and sensations to get out of their head and into their bodies. Maggi does this with art therapy, guided meditation, and grounding, focusing exercises. From there, Maggi explores with clients their values, and helps them get their unspoken needs met and gain a sense of guided purpose. These needs may include setting limits, trusting their intuition, life satisfaction, rest, and eliminating burnout.
In addition to art therapy training, Maggi has several years of training in dream work and archetypes. They are continuing this training as a training candidate with the CG Jung Institute Zurich.
Maggi works with people online in New York and Delaware Mondays through Thursdays. Contact Maggi for specific time availability.
