Engaging the Dream – Level One

Many ancient cultures believed in the importance of dreaming and the power of guidance that one receives in that liminal space we enter, often referred to as The Dreaming, or The Dreamtime. Some have even argued that the world of dreaming is the real world and the waking world is the illusion. Take “Meeting Your Dream Self” to the next level with a more intensive course on working with your dreams, and learning to navigate your waking world with the wisdom and guidance of your dreamworld.

February 4th ,11th, 18th, 25th, March 3rd, 17th, 24th, April 7th & 14th $450

More than ever, we need to ground ourselves in our own stillness, retreat into our deeper wisdom, and emerge with the clarity and confidence we need to live our lives fearlessly.

Journaling is a time-honoured method of clearing space mentally and emotionally by putting your thoughts and musings into a container. When we meet ourselves on the page, we laugh, cry, vent, dream, and get inspired.

Many people express a desire and/or a knowing that journaling will help but they don’t know what to write, only write when things are not well, or don’t know how to fit it into their busy schedules.

Enter the ritual of journaling. This 9 week course will take you through eight different styles of journaling from morning pages to expressing through art, to journaling in a planner/ organizer. Daily journal prompts will be provided. Classes include guided visualizations and journal exercises. Each week we explore and practice a different method so you can access bits of wisdom from different parts of who you are. And you will discover the style and ritual that works best for you!

“…your dreams are social as well as individual, personal as well as transpersonal. When you make sharing dreams a regular social activity, you’ll find you bring joy and juice to any day, grow wonderful deepening friendships, and harvest essential guidance for soul and survival for navigating your life roads in this world and the many worlds.” – Robert Moss

Life in dreaming cultures included the tenant that the gifts of dreaming inherent in everyone needed to be shared for the benefit of both the individual as well as the collective. Dreams provide a rich and often untapped source of guidance for us from both subconscious and transpersonal realms. We are constantly being invited to rise to a different perspective to explore life and experience resolution. Sharing dreams with a group in an emotionally safe and confidential environment can yield an even richer source of understanding given the variety of insights that may illuminate many levels of the dream for each dreamer.

Become part of a monthly dream sharing circle, using Robert Moss’s Lightning Dreamwork Process, to unfold, explore, and build upon the guidance from your dreams, and to be part of a community of dreamers.

Journaling On: Monthly Group

Monthly (on Saturdays) – starting May 2024 – 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. – $50

*Open to people who have completed the Journaling: Writing to the Center of Who You Are course, given the intimate nature of the work shared in the group, and the need for a safe, confidential space.

Continue the Journaling Journey with a monthly virtual group where we share and discuss what is moving through your inner and outer worlds, how that is showing up on the page, and how to navigate with that wisdom. Group meetings support wherever you are with your journey, help you to be accountable to your process, and encourage the use of various prompts and journaling methods. Meetings will either include a grounding meditation, or an invitation to embark on a guided visualization, and end off with messages for the group pulled from oracle decks that can be used as a jumping off point for further journaling.
