The Gift of the Dream
Dreams offer us the possibility of a sacred encounter: an opportunity to know ourselves more deeply and to connect with a Divine Source. There are many biblical and literary examples of sacred dream encounters. But what does it look like when a modern person embraces the dream as a path to the Soul? The work of David Blum shows us one view of this path.
Diagnosed with cancer at age 52, David discovered that drawing images from his dreams helped him cope with his illness in profoundly unexpected ways. He tells us, “I embarked on two journeys, one medical, the other spiritual”. Shortly before his death, David felt compelled to share his inner journey in the hope that his experience might inspire others. His efforts resulted in the film, An Appointment with a Wise Old Dog: Dream Images in a Time of Crisis.
The Gift of the Dream will include a viewing of David’s film, followed by a discussion. Keren will share her perspective on working with dreams, and provide guidance for participants wishing to begin or deepen their dreamwork practice. This program is suitable for both new and experienced dreamers and will provide an introduction for those wishing to register for ‘Entering the Heart of the Dream'. Fee: $30 CEUs: 2 CEUs are available ($15 fee)
Held at Zero Balancing Wellness Center, 809 Ridge Rd., Suite 200, Wilmette, IL 60091 $75, CEUs: 5 Enrollment limited to 10 participants
Enter the 'Heart of your Dreams'. Learn how dreams 'speak' to each of us, showing us outgrown patterns of conditioning and neglected aspects of ourselves, and illuminate pathways to healing and spiritual connection. Through discussion, movement, drawing and other experiential exercises, participants will learn basic principles for working with dreams and begin to identify places of deep feeling and soul connection within their dreams. This workshop is suitable for new and experienced dreamers. Please bring at least one dream written out on the day of the workshop. Attendance at 'The Gift of the Dream' is helpful, but not essential. Beginning participants may also find it beneficial to schedule an individual dreamwork session with the instructor, prior to the workshop (for a nominal fee) To do so, contact Keren before January 20th at firstname.lastname@example.org
