You and Your Dreams in 2015

Are dreams important? Can dreams change your life? The Portage Public Library is offering you the opportunity to learn more about the power of dreams as you re-evaluate your life in the New Year. Robert Thompson will be facilitating a group on “Dreams” at the Library.  Mr. Thompson has previously taught a class on the history of dreams at MATC (Madison College).  Some topics that could be covered include: the history of dreams through various cultures, dream interpretation, and documenting your own dreams. The first session was in the Tech Room of the library on Thursday, January 22 at 6:30. UPDATE: Due to high interest, the Dreams Group will continue to meet on a monthly basis. Meetings will be held on the first and third Saturdays of each month at 6:30PM at N9529 Monthey Road, 9 miles northeast of Portage. For any additional questions or for directions to the new location, please call facilitator Robert Thompson at telephone number 608-617-4439.
