Bring a dream and join us for this Experiential Dream Group, second and fourth Fridays from 4-6pm at Breath and Oneness. Katherine R. Bell will work with 3-4 volunteers in each meeting who want to share their dream. She will invite the dreamer to slow down certain moments of their dream and to breathe into what is happening. She always trusts the dreamer as the final authority of their own dream and don't impose my own interpretations. By tapping into our subconscious body-awareness, this simple but powerful technique often results in insights that can help with waking life situations. Sometimes we will act out scenes in a dream to deepen the embodied experience. Sometimes we may take time to write about our dreams or to draw.
Working dreams in a group deepens a sense of community and empowers everyone in the room. There is usually time for participants to comment respectfully on each others' dreams, but the focus is on holding space for the dreamer to explore their own dream openings and insights Dreams come to us as experiences in the night; experiences that are ready to be felt. Are you ready to open the gift of your dreams?
