It’s been said that the most important book you’ll ever read is your own dream journal.
That’s because your nighttime dreams hold the keys to unlocking your truest self, your most authentic voice, and the infinite stream of creativity inside you.
Every night you receive guidance through the images, symbols, and feelings that emerge in your dreams. And if you explore what these messages from your soul (the truest part of yourself) are trying to say, you lift the veils of your ego (its fears, self-criticism, and perceived inadequacies) to better see yourself, your life, and the world.
In this playful writing workshop led by dreamwork guide and writer Susan Audrey, you will learn how to use the wisdom of your dreams as a fascinating portal to creativity.
You’ll explore your dream images, symbols that emerge during the workshop, even the fresh insights of your fellow writers, to illuminate the wisdom they hold and then share what you discover through writing. You’ll have fun, get to know yourself a little better, and go home with new ways to tap into your most authentic and potent creative self.
Susan Audrey is a multi-disciplined dreamwork practitioner, an artist, and a staff writer for The Shift Network, headquartered at The Institute for Noetic Sciences in Petaluma.
Susan is currently writing her thesis –– inspired and informed by dreams and synchronicities –– as completion of her Master’s Degree in Jungian Psychology. Click here to learn more about dreamwork.
Engaging Both Sides of the Dream: Cultivating Insight and Taking Action
A Daylong Retreat to Help You Discover
and Take the Next Steps on Your Life’s Path
Saturday, June 27, 2015, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in beautiful Lucas Valley (Marin County)
(Directions will be provided upon registration.)
What if you could have what you desire in life or discover what would make you truly happy by learning how to listen deeply to your soul?
What if you could bring this soul wisdom into the light of day to jumpstart the experiences you dream of living?
Whether you’re facing a big life transition, wanting to take that next thrilling step on your career path or wanting to know what your highest purpose is at this point in your life, your soul can show you the way.
In this daylong retreat led by Dreamwork Guide Susan Audrey and Life Coach Cara Cordoni, you’ll learn how to tap into your soul’s wisdom –– the clearest, most authentic, truly self-knowing part of you –– to help you discover the next empowering and transformative steps on your life’s path.
You’ll go inward to discover and tap into your inner dream –– the whisperings of your soul –– and then learn how to bridge this vital self-knowledge into your everyday life to help you activate your “outer” dreams for your life.
In the safe and compassionate container of this intimate workshop, you’ll experience deep soul-stirring practices, including active dreaming and forgiveness journaling as well as exhilarating and liberating approaches to allowing your soul to sing, including rhythmic dance and soul art.
Tapping into your soul’s wisdom will help you to better navigate life challenges, ignite the dreams you have for your life, and create a life rich with joy, fulfillment, and the inner peace that comes with living as who you really are… as your Soul Self.
A life that feels right, where you’re living comfortably in your own skin and doing what you were meant to be doing… what you were brought into this world to do, what makes your soul sing!
Here’s what you’ll experience:
Active dreaming : A way of dropping into a dream state so that you can get really clear on what it is you want for your life AND get some clues on how to attain it.
Story sharing: You’ll share your current story of your life with another and gain important insights into how you might want to change this story to one that is more empowering and supportive AND in alignment with what you want your life to be and who you really are inside.
An exploration of how you give your power away: You’ll learn a way to go within and discover how, where and when you give your power away and/or when you find yourself feeling victimized. You’ll learn to catch this pattern in yourself and replace it with a more empowering one.
Dance: Enjoy the liberating feeling of dancing with a group. Explore the basics of 5 Rhythms dancing and how to use dance to help you release “stuck” energy and open to a higher vibration – and lighter you!
Break for a healthy lunch (provided)
Forgiveness journaling: You’ll be guided in discovering what forgiveness work you may still need to do through a personal writing exercise. Whether you need to forgive yourself and/or others, this exercise will help you to free up valuable energy, bring more clarity to what your next steps are for your life, and help you to feel lighter and happier.
Discovering your potential for trusting (yourself and life): You’ll learn a short exercise that helps you to remember and return to a time that you felt calm, safe and in a state of trust. You’ll then explore what your life can be like when you trust… what are the possibilities, which do you want to explore first?!
Igniting the possibilities for your life through art: You’ll create simple Soul Cards (no artistic ability required) that depict the new possibilities for your life that you’ve discovered during the workshop. And you’ll have the opportunity to share what you’ve learned and what you’re excited about introducing into your new life story.
