Next Dream work training is June 21 through 24 on Salt Spring Island.
We will explore dreams as a means of transformation and emotional healing. During the workshop we explore dream and waking states. We consider the grammar of dreams, dreams of distraction, control, judgments, attachment, inspirations, apprenticeship and mastery.
For more information contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Work shop starts at 5pm Thursday and finishes at 2 pm Sunday.
Dreams and Dreaming are One Path to Mindful Living
Our dreams often show us a view that is different from what we believe or are consciously aware of in our waking life. Living Mindfully includes attending to the powerful messages from our dreams.
Some dreams are vivid, emotional, and dramatic markers of a particular Journey stage. Other dreams can be unclear; they may address multiple situations in our lives.
Part of the evening will review dream-work ‘best practices’. The balance of the evening we will work our dreams. This is a small group session, with a 5 week rotation.

Dreaming is Close at Hand
We dream every night…but what do our dreams mean and what are they trying to tell us? Understand some of what your dreams are telling you and how to benefit from the profound guidance they offer in your everyday life.
Here’s a short quiz:
What do the following people have in common?
Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Albert Einstein, Paul McCartney, George Frederick Handel, Richard Wagner, Robert Louis Stevenson, Rene Descartes, Orson Welles, Ingmar Bergman, Elias Howe, James Watt, Billy Joel, D.H. Lawrence, Dmitri Mendelev, and Jack Nicklaus.
These are a few of the scientists, musicians, artists, writers, inventors and athletes who have said their work was deeply enriched and often, completely inspired by their dreams!
Creativity and Inspiration
Dreams are a primary sources of human creativity and problem solving. Virtually all cultures throughout time have honored the wisdom available from dreams. Yet, in our own society, few of us realize the profound guidance they offer us each night.
Dreams offer assistance in our daily lives–working within us each night to provide support, healing and greater clarity about our life’s purpose. The healing energy carried by our dreams enables us to shift our perspectives about who we are and what we need to live our life more authentically. This is a powerful source of guidance from our psyche that help us develop an individualized “working map” through the corridors of our life.
By understanding our dreams we relate more intimately and effectively in family, social and work relationships. Whether in regard to relationships, career problems or creative blocks, dreams offer new perspectives that allow us to transcend the fear that suffocates our full potential, release chronic conflict in relationships, and discover our own path to the quality of love we want to receive and give.
Dreams help unearth the passionate energy trapped beneath the self-defeating attitudes that have kept you stuck, frustrated and unfulfilled in your life. Every dream image is a hologram of living, healing energy on which you can draw. Dreamwork releases energy that you will actually feel in your body.
Perhaps most importantly, the regular practice of dreamwork deepens and enhances our respect for the spiritual ground of life. Dreams prompt and lead us, actually suggesting a direction we need to take in life and a way to achieve the mindfulness required to get there.
