Dear Dream Tending Community,

Momentum is building toward our workshops on the Imagination Matrix. We will be journeying through the realms of Dream and Imagination. Our destination is well known. It is the place of homecoming, a returning to the source of our deep belonging.

To make this courageous journey, we need the support of our Soul Companions. They will be your guides, protectors, and teachers. As you navigate the realms of deep imagination, these inner figures both lead the way and illuminate the extraordinary. Befriending this inner community has a tangible impact on outer life experience. Relationships become clear and more fulfilling, co-creation at the workplace increases, and emotional/physical health improves.

A passage from my new book, The Imagination Matrix provides a bit of elaboration.

“Soul Companions can present themselves as persons, animals, landscapes, and mythic presences. Some might already be known to you. As you get to know and trust these allies on your journey in the realms of deep imagination (below), you will find often in surprising ways that they can often become Imaginal allies you can draw upon in daily life (above). When developing this relationship, Soul Companions assist you in meeting psychological, emotional, and physical challenges.”

Join us in our Imagination Matrix workshop.
