The Transformative Power of Dreams, Introductory Workshop
“When we keep track of our dreams we receive spiritual direction for life. We access our own inner wisdom and our personal point of contact with God.” – Jeremy Taylor
Dreams are a unique and powerful resource for the spiritual/life journey. They can provide us with insight as we seek to understand ourselves and others. Dreams offer us guidance as we deal with everyday struggles and decisions. Even dreams which seem confusing or frightening often contain within them a message which invites us to wholeness and healing. During this workshop we will experience some practical ways of working with our dreams in order to discover the messages contained within our dream symbols.
