This Month at The Dragon Café – A Festival of Freud

A chance to unlock your unconscious and expand your mind!

We are delighted to end a month of events in collaboration with the Freud Museum to explore psychoanalytic ideas. Freud’s theories are often seen as outmoded and irrelevant these days, yet also quite intriguing. In these imaginative workshops and talks you will get a chance to learn what they really mean and how they connect to creativity and everyday life.

Farewell to Freud (for now)
We’ve had a fantastic month in our Festival of Freud and this last Monday you can join us for another fascinating afternoon workshop and evening event. At 2 pm we welcome existential-analytic psychotherapist and photographer Del Loewenthal for a Freud and ‘Phototherapy’ workshop. If you would like to bring in a personal photograph for this session please do, but you can still take part if you don’t. At 7 pm we close with Psychoanalysis – (How) Does it Work? A fitting final talk with discussion by Emilia Raczkowska from the Freud Museum.
