Day of Dreams
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning is a new arrival
A joy, a depression, a meanness.
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Every night I go to bed. I have my dream journal open and pen on my bedside locker. What visitor in shape of a dream will come tonight? If I do not write a brief note when I awaken after a dream I will probably not remember it.
In my experience of recording and spending time with my dreams over the last 30 or 40 years, I have found them to be a source of great puzzlement, guidance, nourishment, prophecy, confirmation and challenge. They have been particularly helpful in making decisions. For me, dreams are messages from my soul which utilize the residue of the day and past memories to question, challenge and direct me in living life to the full.
We spend one-third of our lives sleeping and one-fifth dreaming. If we take our age and divide it by three it tells us on average how much time we have spent sleeping. Divide by three and it tell us how much time we have spent dreaming.
Children dream a lot. As they grow and develop quickly this is reflected in the experience of dreaming about death and dying. The old structure of personality has to die to make room for the new.
This workshop offers participants an opportunity to understand their dreams. I do most of my dream work while walking. It affords me the opportunity of moving as the dream characters move, and entering their space. Utilizing nature and the variety that the more-than-human world offers assists me in making sense of my night-time adventures.
To take part in this exciting day please sign up as soon as possible. We will work both indoors and outdoors being guided by the weather. You will be given the opportunity of working with a dream and you will return home with several tools enabling you to continue this exciting work.
