Saturday, October 7th 9 a.m. - October 8th1 p.m
Dreamland, Worcester, Vermont
Dreamwork is one of the most ancient spiritual/healing practices of humankind, having maintained its influence since Neolithic times. Through this ancient practice, we can discover a deep well of wisdom not only reflective of our personal journey but also of the earth’s dreaming us awake to Her. Both the inner wilds of our dreams and the outer wilderness of the more than human world are two of the most potent guides to experiencing the depth of our soul’s essence. The Wilding of the Dream, an introductory program offered as part of Dreaming Back to the Earth, offers an opportunity to weave the guidance of the dream and the earth’s wisdom as a path to healing the personal and ecological self within.
In this 2-day immersion we will wander the wilderness of our inner and outer worlds. We will explore dreams in a supportive group setting through direct dialogue, wandering the earth, ritual, the expressive arts, movement, imagery, and music. These practices are designed to elucidate the dream realm, illuminate the natural world, and infuse our waking life with a sense of creativity and sacred earth connection. We will re-enter our dreams while deepening our conversation with the more than human world. No prior dreamwork experience is needed. Please bring one or two recent dreams with which to work.
Breakfast and lunches are the responsibility of each participant. We will have a potluck dinner, so please bring something to share for Saturday night. We will provide coffee, teas and water. Participants are also responsible for their own transportation to and from the program location. Participants can camp out on Dreamland and there are local hotels in the area. We will also have an altar for sacred items, so feel free to bring an item of importance to you that you would like to have on the altar. More information will be provided upon registration.
Come prepared to wander among the trees and play with clouds and butterflies in any type of weather.
