Speaking to you from the Big Sky and high mountains of Montana opens my heart. Breathing the fresh air and listening to the sounds of the flowing rivers feeds my soul. Being here with several people who have enrolled in the upcoming Certificate I program brings enthusiasm for what is coming. In that dream-centered teaching/learning community we will explore the magic and mystery of deep imagination. We will discover how the rhythms moving through the psyche of nature shape and inform our authentic callings. Dreams inform our life purpose and offer resources to meet life’s challenges. In the world of today, experiences of isolation, anxiety, and depression are all too commonplace. The Dream Tending practice offers practical tools to transform painful patterns into generative guidance for a creativity-centered life.
Until next Tuesday . . .
