CAN dreams help us flourish as a person? That is indeed the case, according to dreams expert and former RTE director Michael Murphy, who will bring his show Speaking of Dreams to the Belltable this month.
The psychoanalyst takes his Irish tour to the city centre stage with presenter Ciana Campbell, based on his latest publication Book of Dreams, on February 16.
The evening will include an interview with Mr Murphy on dream analysis and how they can guide a person in everyday life, the Irish dreamer, recital of his poetry, and a discussion with the audience to examine their dreams.
As a producer and director with RTE, Michael worked on a number of projects in Limerick and has been allured to “the warmth of Limerick people”.
“I hope that people will take from the show the importance of our dream life, and be able to understand how dreams can help us to be the best that we can be. And Ciana and I also look forward to having a quiet word with some Limerick people after the show, to be confirmed once again by their goodness and warmth.”
He said that dreams are important because “they always want what’s best for us.
“If our personalities are out of balance in some way, the unconscious manifested in our dreams will try to pull us back into alignment. Dreams give us a direction to follow so that our personalities can flourish to the best of our abilities in the circumstances we find ourselves.”
Michael Murphy’s Speaking of Dreams takes place at 8pm on February 16. Tickets range between €17 and €20.
