Welcome to this week’s Tending Tuesdays offering! Tending Tuesdays was inspired by a pull to sustain the value of what happens when we come together as a community. Each Tuesday, an email will come to you with a link to a new video on a Dream Tending or depth psychological topic in the form of current writing and research, interviews, discussions with colleagues, and clips of tending dreams.
Dear Dream Tending and Imagination Community,
1) Rub your hands together for sixty seconds. Then cup them and place them over your ears.
2) Hear the ocean waves through the resonance of your cupped hands.
3) Close your eyes. Remember a time that you spent next to or in a body of water.
4) Experience your busy mind dissolving.
5) Notice your curiosity. Awaken.
6) Imagine Ocean Dreaming now. What do you hear, see, feel?
7) Through the dreamtime, share this oracular offering with someone you know or someone in need.
8) How has the soul deepened? With an open heart, offer gratitude.
Until next Tuesday . . .
In the dreamtime,
Inside The Curious Mind
“Dance with the waves, move with the sea, let the rhythm of the water set your soul free.”
—Christy Ann Martine
