RETRIEVING THE DREAMER, REMEMBERING THE DREAM:
A DREAMWEAVING EXPERIENCE.
Co-Facilitated with Lauren Morgan of Laurel Crown Healing
Join Lauren Morgan and Katy Pavlis for a workshop series centering around exploring the world of dreams. In a safe and supportive environment, learn about the hidden gifts of healing and messages of insight your dreams are offering to you each night as you sleep.
It is during the season of Winter that all of Nature, including we humans, are called inward to rest and digest, process, gestate, and deepen into the truth of our selves. It is said that access to the sub/unconscious is more easily granted during this time of year and thus our dreaming self steps more to the forefront. Spend this Winter tapping into and nurturing your Dreamer Self. This series begins near the Winter Solstice and ends near the Spring Equinox. Dream this next year’s dream with a group of other folks seeking to deepen their own dream.
Together, we will get to know ourselves as dreamers in a deeper way by engaging in a variety of dreaming experiences, techniques and ceremonies such as: Projective Dreamwork, Dreamtending, Dream re-entry, Dreaming for Divination, Dreaming Altars, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to work dreams in detail, mining them for meaning and significance, and coalescing the transformative energies unleashed from the dream to bring change to the waking life. The second weekend we will all take part in a Dream Incubation ritual, in which we will experience the power of collective dreaming.
There will be plenty of time spent integrating what we have experienced, harvesting our learnings, and grounding the practical skills we have gained into an actionable plan moving forward.
We recommend attending both workshops if able.

The ceremony will take place that evening and lead into a collective dreaming ritual. The final day will be spent processing the experience, harvesting our learnings and grounding the practical skills of the workshops into an actionable plan to carry the dream forward.
Support Between Workshops: There will be a group email thread created for sharing dreams, insights and discoveries. We also encourage folks to schedule one dream tending session with Lauren or Katy between each meeting to help with integration. We will be offering a group Zoom call before each workshop to go over logistics and get connected.
Where: The land that will hold us is a private residence nestled deep in the Olympic national forest between Sequim and Port Angeles, providing a sense of privacy, seclusion and connection to Nature and Wild. Opportunities for walks and time for communion in/with Nature will be built into the structure. Travel time from Seattle is approximately 2.5 hours.
Who: This series is for brand new dreamers, seasoned dreamers, and anyone in between. Folks who are seasoned dreamers will have the opportunity to deepen their dreaming thanks to the group energy. Folks brand new to dreaming will gain valuable and practical skills that they can carry forward into their own future practice. All will have the opportunity to mine personal significance from their dreaming experience.
