Embodied Dreamwork practitioner, Louisa Heyward, invites you to join her weekly Dreamers’ Circle. In the approach of Embodied Dreamwork, dreams are entered into through associative exploration and felt experience with the understanding that each dream derives meaning specific to the history and perspective of its particular dreamer.
Enjoy the rare opportunity to share dreams in a facilitated group setting as well as learn techniques and tools to take home. Each week participants need to bring one or several dreams to work on, preferably written down, a notebook, paper, and a writing utensil. The group will explore dream moments through brief exercises involving writing or drawing followed by thoughtfully facilitated group sharing. Group size is capped at 10 participants. Please contact Louisa Heyward at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in joining.
