Have a look through our events below
People often wonder whether their dreams have meaning and if so, what does the images or storylines symbolize? What is the possible meaning of people, animals and places that appear in our dreams? Or specific events that take place? Why are some dreams so horrific or bizarre?
Understanding the images of our dreams could increases our self-awareness and awareness of the world around us. In ancient civilizations, spiritual and shamanic traditions as well as visionary art, dreams were seen as a pathway to heightened consciousness, wisdom and an expanded sense of self.
Tapping into the wisdom of personal and collective symbol, myth, and metaphor connects us to the guidance and inspiration of the unconscious and the archetypal realm. Dream work offers a deep insight into internal conflicts, identify barriers to healing and growth, as well as possible solutions.
