As Natural Dreamwork practitioners we spend a lot of time inside other people’s dreams. It’s what I imagine spelunking might be like, with the cave being our psyche and the dreamwork practitioner and the dreamer being two explorers…curious, open and not without some fear.

We take a lantern and leave the familiar world of life on the surface and begin the descent into the darkness, the unknown places, the place our dreams want to take us. We stop often along the way, shining the light of questions into some of the darker corners, not sure what we’ll find but both with a willingness to look at whatever it is we do find…to feel into it…the dreamer knowing they have support each step of the way…from the dream and from their practitioner.

What we find is often nothing less than remarkable…an unhealed wound that wants to be healed…a remembered loving connection…a coming back into the body…an unfelt feeling that wants to be felt…and the discovery of our capacity to feel it all.  And when, as the dream session closes, we emerge from the depths…and we are both somehow changed.

Often we sit quietly for a few moments…perhaps there are tears…having returned to the outer world with a new feeling…a new awareness…a closer connection to soul. We stay in that place for a few moments together…humbled in a way…knowing we just experienced a kind of miracle.

Here at Natural Dreamwork we invite you to invite us to step into your dreams with you, explore together what it is that wants to be healed and take birth in you…who it is that wants to be in relationship with you. We work with clients throughout the country and abroad in person, phone or Skype.
