Join one of our dream groups and explore what your dreams reveal about you. Ever been curious about a dream? Ever wondered how your dreams relate to your waking life. We offer two dream groups; a six week intensive dream group and a one-year deeper exploration into dreams.
You will be supported to set your intention for dreaming, keep a dream journal and to revisit your dreams to explore hidden meanings and messages.
Dreamtime when accessed with intention can be a powerful technique to develop skills, remove obstacles to change and increase motivation, confidence and well being.
On average we have a dream every 90-minutes whilst sleeping. You won’t know you’ve been dreaming unless you wake up in the middle of the dream. You then need to bring the dream fully into awareness or it will slip back down into unconsciousness. Then you must write it down immediately before you forget. We advise everyone who joins our dreaming groups to keep a dream journal and every night to set their intention to remember their dreams.
Dreams can be packed with information about who we are, what we want from life and what is holding us back from achieving it. This rich data often goes unseen and unheard but by taking time to explore our dreams we get an illuminating insight into our psyche. For example, the characters in our dreams might be people we know from the past or present or different parts of ourselves. When we pay attention we bring the unconscious into our consciousness and we can take a look at the shadow areas of untapped potential and disowned self.
Participating in a dreaming group is a great privilege. Not only do you get to explore your own dreams but you have an invitation to be curious and collectively explore the dreams of others. As a group we will collectively shine a light into the obscure world of the dream.
You will learn how to;
- keep a dream journal
- remember and revisit your dreams
- utilise the hypnogogic and hypnopompic states to improve your skills and life
- become lucid in your dreams
- understand the symbols of your dream world
- look into the shadow of the hidden potential and the disavowed self
- use the dreamtime for problem solving and guidance.
Our Approach to Understanding Dreams
We take a clean non-interpretative approach to exploring what your dreams are revealing. By working in the present moment you are supported to revisit the dream that intrigues you. We will use a number of techniques to release the energy of the dream and explore the meaning that we attach to this.
How I use data from dreams in coaching
Dreams offer a rich source of data that provides the professional and the client another lens or perspective to explore the situation. This additional information can throw a new light on the barriers that are preventing the coachee from making a desired change.
I offer dream exploration as a coaching intervention. My approach to helping clients understand their dreams is non-directive I never analyse or interpret their dreams. What I do is invite the client to revisit the dream and talk me through it. I then listen and ask questions to help them explore the symbols and deeper meaning of the dream. Clients have reported making sense of outdated behaviour, deep shifts in their thinking and greater insight into what might be going on for them.
Who Participates in our Dream Groups
We limit each group to four participants to create psychological safety. Our dreaming groups are popular with helping professionals such as coaches, therapists and counsellors and people who want to gain a deeper understanding of themselves. Participants tell us that our dreaming group provides a powerful experience and an insightful lens to work more deeply with themselves and their clients.
Our Dream Groups
We provide a safe space to explore the previously unseen and unknown. Applicants will be invited to complete an application form and a short telephone conversation with the facilitator to answer any questions.
