This group will run Tuesdays Sept 6 - October 11, 7 pm - 8:30 pm
Group introductions - This will include who you are in the world, what draws you to this work, and an opportunity to introduce us to a dream of yours you may be interested in working with. I will also provide a short outline of the group process as a whole.
Dream Incubation - This is the concept of intending and creating in your dream world. I will walk you through a meditation and a writing technique to give you the skill to practice guiding your subconscious to focus on dreams that will help you in your waking life. This can be used for answers to life situations, manifestation, dreaming for world peace, or simply having better dream recall. For example, you may want more clarity on a relationship or job prospect. Perhaps you are creating a new business or community and simply want to hold the vision without the conflict of your ego mind. This is a very powerful technique that you will be invited to practice with consistency throughout the 6 weeks in order to sharpen your skill.
Check in - This time is reserved for urgent check ins. These include anything that may keep you from being present in the group. Otherwise, we will reserve process time for the second half of the group once we've done some work with a dream.
Dream Merge - this is a process by which we choose a dream image that calls to us and allow our subconscious to experience the feelings and sensations of being the dream image. Through guided meditation and body awareness, we allow our bodies to communicate the healing message or gift of the dream to us, and we invite the deep emotional experiences that facilitate our growth. When we resonate with the dream image in this way, we are inviting our dream to offer us a deeper connection and understanding with the soul. We will then process and share the experience as a community, including, if relevant, a new intention for dream incubation.
Group Dreaming - This technique allows us to enter into one person's dream as though we are all the dreamer (the collective unconscious would assert that dreams belong to all of us as we are in a state of "one-ness" while dreaming). We re-enact the dream images (archetypal forces) in the dream and then have the opportunity to find out what they are telling us about our lives individually and collectively.
Community dream work such as this is key to revealing the power of dreams to guide us. Indigenous cultures all over the world would not understand the concept of working with dreams outside of a community. In fact, many indigenous tribes have a practice of engaging in group dream work first thing in the morning - imagine if we shared such a practice how much more connected we might feel! This particular week allows us to engage with the power of community healing and intuitive connection.
Writing the Dream - This is a guided writing exercise in which you allow your subconscious to interact with the dream image finding out what it has to offer you, what information you need for your life, or what healing or gift is available to you. We allow this process to happen through automatic writing, in which your subconscious uses pen and paper as a translator for you. Many insights are available to us through this process that once again excuses the ego mind for some moments and allows us to engage with a deeper level of experience. We will then use the remainder of the time to process and share our experience in community.
Living the Dream - This involves the process of finding our dream symbols in our waking world to help bridge the gap so that we can use our dreams to create in our lives. This includes the sharing of synchronicity from our dreams as well as the use of creativity, artwork, music, to call the dream into the world. You are invited to bring a creative work or synchronicity to share.
This group will also include an introduction to lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is a form of dreaming in which you are actually conscious of your dream state and interacting with the dream to change the outcome, have a particular experience or heal an old trauma. Dreamers interested in this work will have the opportunity to sign up for an upcoming workshop or group with more focus here.
Sharing a living dream - This is the process of bringing the community back together to share the stories that our dreams have told us. This final group will allow us to set intention around our breakthroughs through ritual so that we leave having made committed decisions about our lives based on what we experienced. We will also have a closing ritual that will invite in the timelessness of our connection as a community.
