If you've ever been curious about dreamwork, the imaginal, your psyche, creativity and collective dreaming this evening is for you! Our favorite dream expert Barbara Bain will be at the studio for this free talk and open dialogue.
This month's discussion session is for the lovers and dreamers out there! Dream images gift us with reflection of the Souls work in love. Images of the heart’s desires can appear as the beloved in varying forms, settings, and scenarios in both dream and waking life. Together, we’ll explore imaginings of the heart, and the idea of the Beloved as an image of the Soul's integration of the masculine and feminine through projection. We’ll claim “in loveness” in history, developing personal and human consciousness around love, and explore images of beauty and ecstasy in the quest to nurture a full acquaintance with the heart’s desires as self knowledge.
We'll have healthy snacks available, bring a friend or two - this event is free to our community!
