A couple of days before your scheduled session you will send me your new dreams. (See Recording Your Dreams.)
During the hour session we will step into your dreams together. You’ll need a copy of your dreams and you may want a notepad. As we explore I will be asking a lot of questions to get underneath the surface of the dream. I’ll ask you to feel into certain parts of the dream. This is the heart of dreamwork where many, oftentimes surprising, places open up for the dreamer. It can be joyful, loving, frightening, sad, challenging, laugh out loud funny…and always self revealing.
Dreamwork is the tender work of the heart and soul and I don’t take lightly the privilege of being with you in this place…and even we aren’t alone. What is very precious, the miracle of the dream, is that within the dream itself there is always found inner support and love.
At the end of the session you will get a dream practice, the medicine found in the dream, a moment(s) from your dreams to deepen and anchor your work, as explained below.
Post Session Practice: Your Dream Medicine
Doing your dream moment practice means that, during the interim between sessions, you keep returning to certain feeling moment(s) that you were able to feel during the session. This deepening of feeling is the medicine that we found in the dream. I recommend that several times throughout your day, find quiet opportunities to return this place. It may only take a few breaths to drop into the feeling, feel it and then return to your day. Some dreamers even make their dream moment something they meditate on, learning to breathe into and be with what is arising. A practice dream medicine may be something like, “Feel your fear as you stop running and turn to the man chasing you” or “Be the girl sledding down the hill, feeling your joy.” With the continued returning to a feeling something inside shifts…new feelings and awarenesses may arise… and a part of you that you lost connection to or didn’t even remember was yours returns to you, helping you re-connect with your true self.
