Compass Dreamwork invites you to engage with your dreams, to experiment with your dreams, to discover for yourself how the experience of dreaming can be useful and meaningful.
Like a compass, a dream shows us where we are, relative to the world around us. It doesn’t point to a specific path, but provides orientation. Just as a compass draws upon the invisible but real magnetic field of the planet as a whole, a dream draws upon the universal “field of experience,” which can help us, individually and collectively, to find and follow our own deepest sense of direction.
Compass Dreamwork offers opportunities…
…To Encounter your own dreams, and to walk with others in the realm of dreaming, with the guidance and support of an experienced, certified dreamworker, in the context of individual dreamwork sessions or dream-sharing groups.
…To Expand your perspective so that you can apply dream insights and dream openings to your waking life, and to larger concerns such as the social and environmental challenges facing our planet. Compass Dreamwork is committed to developing a “big picture” perspective on the ecology of dreamwork, following the tradition of the many indigenous cultures that consider dreams meaningful not only for the individual, but for the larger community and the earth itself. You can make a difference with your dreamwork, as your dreams are woven into the tapestry of all dreaming.
Our lives provide plenty of potential for spiritual practice: opportunities to make choices, connections, and openings, to learn, grow, and develop, to explore new territory, change harmful patterns, and know that we are part of something larger than ourselves. It makes sense to assume that this potential exists not only during our waking hours, but also during the third of our lives we spend in sleep. When we are dreaming, we have many of the same opportunities for exploration and development as in our waking lives, but the fluid, vivid, and transpersonal nature of dreams can offer unique ways of approaching spiritual work .
Dreaming experiences and waking experiences both become richer, fuller, and more “awakened” when we relate to them with gentle curiosity and openness, when we notice what happens and how things change as we respond to each situation. By broadening the range of possible experiences, dreams can give us a wider frame of reference for understanding the nature of reality itself, and the nature of our identity within that reality.
Compass Dreamwork is dedicated to encouraging and supporting people as they expand the range of their imaginations (and thus their options) through dreaming and reflecting upon their dreams.
