“A dream is a small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens up to that primeval cosmic night that was the soul, long before there was the conscious ego.”
~ Carl Gustav Jung
Do you ever have that feeling that there is more? That there has got to be more? A feeling that you really do not belong in this time and place? It could be that you are yearning for your soul…
Spiritual Soul Searching
We have a brain that is wired for spirituality. No matter how rational the world has become, this spiritual longing is in our nature. And it is so much better to live a life that honours your nature than it is to live a life fighting it. But that is what most people do. If you want to change that, Mindfunda’s Spiritual Soul Searching is the course for you.
In four weeks, Susanne van Doorn, MSc, and Christian Gerike, M.A., will guide you in an exploration of different aspects of your spirituality. We will not only read about spirituality, we will also do exercises and incubations so you are able to experience it. We will incubate dreams, answer questions, and draw conclusions.
After the four weeks, you are asked to draw your spirituality, based on the experiences you had during this course. We will talk about the drawings at the end of the course. If you would like personal guidance, there is a plan that provides this on a weekly basis. It is always very insightful to talk about your dreams with an expert that provides an objective vision.
The course consists of 4 weekly lessons. Each week you will get:
1) one lesson about your innate spirituality;
2) one lesson about connecting with your shadow;
3) one lesson about archetypes;
4) dream examples to guide you in re-interpreting your dream journal;
5) questions to explore your own inner wealth; and
6) a dream incubation to use the rest of that week, or any time you would like to re-discover this aspect;
7) a concluding lesson about your personal mandala; a treasure for the rest of your life.
When the course is finished you will have created a roadmap for your Spiritual Self. A valuable asset to contain inner balance. A way to seek fulfilment within. It will keep you focussed. It will keep you balanced.
Spirital Soul searching experiences
Christian and I presented a similar well-received program at the 2016 International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) Conference in the Netherlands. In four mornings we have explored the topics in this course. It was so inspiring that psychoanalyst and author (The Gap) Louis Hagood, one of our participants wrote a presentation about it, that got featured on the psiberconfernce of the IASD. *) This annual online conference focuses on the “psi” in dreaming. Psi dreams are dreams in which ordinary boundaries of space and time get transcended.
Here is an excerpt;
“I prepared to incubate a Shadow dream before going to bed. I hold an incubation object in my left hand while sleeping to focus my intent, and decided to use the Native American dream catcher that I wear as a pin on the lapel of my jacket. Before closing my eyes I asked the dream-incubation question three times, “What is my Shadow?”
In the dream I got in response I am standing on a country road, feeling pleased with myself, when a “less than” man approaches me holding a pitch fork or trident. He pins me to the ground with his tool/weapon as I call for help from the passersby, who ignore me. I wake myself in distress, and wonder why I couldn’t deal with him in any other way. I am a psychoanalyst, analyzed three times over thirty years, a lucid dreamer for ten years, and have dealt with Shadow figures throughout, yet couldn’t negotiate with this figure. Jung introduced the objective psyche, as opposed to the subjective, which contains autonomous figures, and mine was definitely autonomous!”
– Louis Hagood*

What is Mindfunda about?
My name is Susanne van Doorn, I am a Dutch psychologist, blogger and author. I have been working with psychology, dreams and mythology ever since I finished my study in psychology at Tilburg University. I made this independant site to share insights, and recent scientific articles about the brain, dreams, and mythology for use in your personal life.
This posting is categorised as Spirifunda:
psychology for everyday with a spiritual layer of meaning, searching for the soul. Our brains are wired for believe in magic. In a world filled with rationality, you sometimes need a little magic, a little “I wonder why”. Synchronicity, the insights of Carl Jung, the mythology used by Freud, the archetypical layers in the Tarot, the wisdom of the I Tjing, Shamanism, the oldest religion of humanity, all that information gets published in the Spirifunda section of Mindfunda.

Glad I can leave a comment this time round Susanne! What a lovely example of Hagood’s dream of the shadow and its autonomy! And a good reminder to us all – I’ll read his article on the link you provided, thank you.
Hi Susan, so nice to hear from you! Lou is such a wise soul, and I was very flattered that he decided to come to the conference because of our morning dream group. His intuition was right 😉 And I love the fact that i had a trident at the dream bal, such a beautiful synchronicity.
