About the event
As we move towards the darker part of the year, it becomes a natural place for rest and deep dreaming. The leaves fall, the animals begin to gather themselves inwards, and if we are lucky, the mysteries of the the darker nights become an invitation for us to tend to our 'inner nest' and create a safe space for nurture, hybernation, and the deeper healing and 'in-sight'
What lies beneath the surface of the everyday, are the seeds of presence, healing, creativity and inspiration, as we give ourselves full permission to explore the dreaming realms via the healing arts of breathwork, dreamwork, movement, journeying and artwork as part of a holistic healing process.
Like the wise owl, we begin to strengthen our nighttime vision and shine an inner light on that which we cannot see in the light of the everyday, like shamanic explorers we learn how to journey inwards to a liminal space of non-ordinary reality and deep soul connection in order to heal the patterns of the past, and invite in a fresh sense of inspiration . We do this with the breath as our guide, as we learn to rest deeply and listen.
Often times it is within the mysterious space of our night-time dreaming that we can begin to find the deeper riches of the soul's call, guiding us through the inner imagery of our hearts dreams and /or nightmares, in order to witness and work with both our hopes, and fears in transformative ways.
You will learn to be the master of your own dream interpretation as you explore your own inner language, through visualization, breathwork, meditation and art making as we learn the intuitive value of remembering and listening to our dreaming self and sharing parts of this in a dream circle.
Together we will aim to create a confidential and non judgemental safe space for healing and creative practice.
In many ancient and indigenous traditions, the language of dreaming forms an important part staying connected to natural rythmns of the cosmos and can play an important role in receiving spiritual guidance and in-sight from the ancestral realms and beyond. The dreamtime is said to be a living truth where past, present and future all co-exist, and the creator's intentions for the way we can live in more connection to ourselves, the land and in harmony with all living beings are accessible when we are able to listen deeply.
Samhain is a perfect time to embark upon the rich journey of 'the art of dreaming and breathing' , as it is the beginning of the darker part of the year, where we enter into the shorter days and longer nights of the dreamtime, where a rich world of mystery, myth and archetype resides.
We will work both individually and in groups as we embark on our creative adventure.
