Torah study looks at the stories of the bible as a dream. The stories of the bible form one vein of the philosophical and meaning-making foundations of Western culture; in them are found the roots of the dreamwork taught at the Institute. We explore them by diving deeply into the drash of specific Torah portions, and the class is informed by midrash, kabbalistic, and other commentaries and teachings. The class will focus on dreaming the texts, with occasional imagery exercises. This class is open to all, regardless of background and experience.
