Dreaming of being at a school is a common dream because life appears to be a perpetual learning experience. Sitting in a class setting can symbolize the exploration and merging of various sides of you. The teacher is often a symbol of expanded awareness or the activation of the Wise Guide within you. As one of the first places where you developed your social skills, being at a school can be a way of observing the early dynamics behind your interactions with others. The anxiety associated with ‘fitting in’ and ‘being measured’ against others, can make the school the representation of what you feel to be your shortcomings.
