Living Room 10.25.11 B.Y.O.D – 7P

Have you had an absurd or incomprehensible dream lately?  Rich subconscious secrets and great poems cleverly hide behind and between dream images.  Often the more absurd the inviting dream and its connections are, the more rich meaning resides.  It is our linear mind that balks from the  fearful yearnings of the dreaming soul.  Please bring a recent or past baffling dream, the more absurd the better,  and be ready to unlock it with an existential dream exercise.  Be prepared to step back into the cosmological mêlée of you dream and see what happens.   Joe Chiveney is your facilitator.

Got Weird Dreams?

Writers of all ages and skill levels gather Tuesdays at 7P to read new work, the work of someone else or to just be in the engaging company of other writers. Your donation of $5 helps SPLAB continue our programming. Please bring 8 copies of the work you plan to read. If you do not bring copies, they are available for 10c.

Living Room happens in the new SPLAB in the Cultural Corner at 3651 S. Edmunds. (Look for the SPLAB sign on the wall and come inside.) We’re 2 blocks from the Columbia City Link Light Rail Station. (Parking is available on the school grounds.)
