Way of Council & Dreams
Bristol : Nov 29th - Dec 1st 2019
Dream-work releases an experience that grips or falls upon us from above, an experience that has substance and body such as those things which occurred to the ancients.”
This weekend in the Way of Council we will be discovering and introducing the language of dreams, our unconscious and unlived, un-integrated parts of ourselves. Dreams are a point of contact between spirit and matter, human and divine - messengers with gifts to help. Dreams reveal our hidden identity, our path and our next step. Dream language is behind our ’thinking mind’, our controlled ego’s ideas about ourselves and our perceived understandings. The ancients knew the power and importance of their dreams. They understood that dreams come from a source that weaves together not only the images, symbols and metaphors from our own life, but also of those who have come before us.
Many indigenous tribal peoples had a natural understanding of listening and living from their dreams. We will be opening to practices and exercises in Council that embrace and open this consciousness.
The final Council will explore how the lessons learned can be brought back into our daily lives continuing the practice of questioning and discovering what it means to listen deeply and how this informs and guides our journey and how we support each other.
"You must give birth to your images
They are the future waiting to be born
Fear not the strangeness you feel
The future must enter you long before it happens
Just wait for the birth, for the hour of clarity"
Rainer Maria Rilke
Our time together will include:
Council practice and time in nature; dialoguing with the dream-world learning from within this mystery.
Our Council will bring together dream work from ancient tribal traditions and the modern dream work processes.
What you may learn
Skills for accessing and processing your dreams.
Using journal writing, art, poetry, storytelling and drama – we will deepen this practice by creating ceremony with the dream being the guide.
You will be making pathways to the language of your dreams and how they are trying to teach and help.
