Though these times may feel uncertain, we can turn toward the mystery, creating new ways, new worlds, and new futures. This turning toward isn’t limited to our individual internal experiences and personal reflections. We also can turn toward each other, to our collective wisdom, and the source of our aliveness. Dreams can be a place, a platform, a practice to support both the turning in, and the turning toward.
Building a relationship with our dreams can provide a bridge to community, a container for our fears, a place of solitude and refuge, nourishment when we are depleted, and ultimately dreams can provide a collective sense of hope for the present.
Join dream facilitator and scholar Sherri Taylor for an experiential two-day dream lab focusing on dreamwork both as individual contemplative practice as well as a practice where you can dream with and in community. In this workshop Dr. Taylor offers practices including journaling, somatic inquiry, movement, and breath. Dreamers are invited to examine their relationship to darkness and nighttime in addition to considering practices to facilitate remembering the lunar consciousness.
Consider the signature images and symbols of your inner imaginarium. Discover how working with dreams can be a contemplative practice—using personal and collective dreams as sacred texts. Develop your own practices of rest and restoration to activate the individual and collective wisdom of your truest self with and in community.
