In the Dreamtime Lost and Found: What Your Dreams (and Nightmares) Want You to Know
Do you ever wake up from a dream feeling comforted? Terrified? Confused? Our dreams, whether sublime or revolting, offer us insights through the symbols they represent. This talk offers an introduction to the basic themes present in every dream, no matter how fragmentary the images. You’ll also learn some simple tips for exploring the deeper meanings of your dreams, both on your own and with others. You’ll discover the touchstones for knowing when an interpretation is true for you. When you pay attention to your dreams, they will reward you with ever-unfolding meaning.
Dreams and Daydreams: Simple Ways to Boost Your Creativity
In this hectic, confusing world, it’s easy to get caught up in to-do lists and lose sight of the meaning behind it all. Yet meaning hides in plain sight, in the symbols our dreams offer us nightly, and in the longings we have for something “more.” This talk offers simple ways to shift your view point and tap into the creative energy that wants to be expressed. Listen to your dreams and daydreams to expand your creativity!
