The Global Dream Initiative (GDI) calls for a recognition of the trauma in the world and the need to participate in its healing. We assert that the world’s suffering appears in dreams and that we can creatively respond via the dream.
The field of depth psychology serves to recognize the suffering of the anima mundi, the ensouled world, and encourages us to serve as witnesses to the many ways in which the ensouled world is becoming conscious of itself through that suffering.
We adopt this idea from archetypal psychologist James Hillman, who, in a profound 1982 essay wrote, “The world, because of its breakdown, is entering a new moment of consciousness: by drawing attention to itself by means of its symptoms, it is becoming aware of itself as a psychic reality.”
We welcome those who are interested in
- Individuals wishing to participate in a group
- Individuals wishing to lead a group
- Organizations wishing to collaborate or bring dream work in
- Volunteers to help grow the work
 James Hillman, 1982, (75).
