A dream you dream together is reality.”
The Dreamer's Breath
AN ONLINE JOURNEY INTO DREAMING AND BREATHING
FUTURE COURSE DATES TBA
About this event
The Dreamer’s Breath pathway is an online deep dive journey into Dreaming and Breathing .
It consists of a series of sessions, which are a unique combination of Dreamwork, Conscious Connected Breathwork, Self- Inquiry, a variety of healing arts and creative arts practices, woven together in one big exotic caboodle!
It can be held in the form of a group journey, or as a one to one journey online.
Why might I choose to embark upon 'The Dreamer's Breath' Journey?
Do you ever wonder if there are hidden messages of healing and transformation within the experiences of your night-time dreaming? Do you ever feel a bit ‘stuck’ like there is something you need to change in your life, but are not exactly sure what it is or how you can change it?
The Dreamer’s Breath is a unique online exploration into the transformative process of working with the power of your breath, combining the somatic practice of Conscious Connected Breathwork with Self-Interpretive Dreamwork.
It is designed to empower you, the dreamer and the breather with the tools to begin to decode the hidden language of your own soul through dynamic breathing practices and creative inquiry, which supports the release and transformation of 'old stories' into embodied wisdom and creates the space for you to write the next chapter of your waking life in new and inspiring ways.
Conscious Connected Breathwork
Conscious Connected Breathwork is a trauma informed somatic breathing practice, which helps the body mind and spirit to process and release limiting emotional behavioural patterns and re-calibrate the nervous system to support integration, self-healing and transformation.
The breathwork facilitator invites the breather to drop down, and listen in to the breath, whilst listening to specifically selected musical playlist, in order to be able to connect with the intuitive 'felt sense' level of awareness within the body.
The breath and the body have their own wisdom, and the breathwork session, becomes a safe container for letting go of what is no longer useful on an energetic level, in the divine order of things, to make space for something new.
The breath has its own intelligence, It can be either a gentle or powerful practice, depending on whatever is needed by the breather on the day. The breath is an incredible medicine, for the mind, body and spirit, and knows exactly what is needed in each moment.
The Dreamer's Breath is a Sacred Breath.......
Sessions are held in the safe container of a co-created confidential sacred space, where kindness to the self and present moment awareness are invited and deeply encouraged.
When Conscious Connected Breathwork is practiced over a series of sessions, part of the healing process may be that unconscious memories and 'stuff' which has been stored in the body, can rise to the surface, in order to be acknowledged, released and subsequently integrated by the nervous system, weaving its way through the fabric of time and everyday life, as part of the wider healing process .
On a mental and emotional level, we may find that our dreams become stronger, as there can be a lot of emotional processing going on beneath the surface. This is when Dreamwork forms the perfect partner to Breathwork, as Breath helps to reset the nervous system, then dreamwork, helps to shed a little intuitive light on how the mind may be able to invite in a different way of seeing things.
Dreamwork is a wonderful way of working, with what sits beneath the surface of everyday awareness. It is a creative, intuitive way of helping us to change our perspective on how we see things, by looking through the abstract lens of our dreams, we learn to dialogue with both the radiant golden self and the darker shadowy self (our blindspots) through the non-judgemental realm of the dreamscape.
Dreamwork can help us connect with the language of the soul, tap into our intuitive creative consciousness, and enrich our lives with a fresh sense of purpose and deeper meaning.
In this series, we will take inspiration from Dream Yoga. Shamanic Practice and other Indigenous Dreaming traditions, to help us remember who we truly are when we begin to work with the language of 'The Dreamer's Breath'
As we learn to come into right relationship with the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical aspects of the dreaming self, then so too, are we able to deepen our connection with community and the natural world as part of aligning with the best version of ourselves in the everyday ‘waking dream’ of life.
In these practices, you will be asked to bring a written dream to work with.
You will learn to become the interpreter of your own dreams and recognize that you are 'The Sovereign Dreamer' of your own life's dream.
