Dream Groups

“It is not knowledge that draws me deeper into the path, but the longing to experience the undefinable, to catch a brief glimpse of those moments that touch me with profound joy—that change me forever—again.”

Meredith graduated from The Robert Moss School of Active Dreaming with additional training in Imaginal Healing and Shamanic Approaches to Death and the Afterlife.  Her dream groups provide an opportunity to connect with others who enjoy sharing dreams and exploring how they can help you to live a more conscious life.

“Dreams help us to tap into the sources of healing and creativity, and guide us toward mindful choices in our waking lives. Through sharing dreams, their symbols, and themes we discover a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. By studying dreams we can craft better relationships and create more fulfilling careers. When given attention, dreams clarify the issues that face us on a daily basis.”
