More about the offering:

1. Once you book, you will be sent a guidleine used by Parker Palmer for circles of Trust, giving the importance of holding the space for each other and expectations around dreams and self-disclosure. It is important that participants can trust the space

2.. Bring a dream, even if it is old or just a tiny segment. Dream work can begin with the smallest of images.  

Session 1 will begin with a demonstration of a dream work approach; and participants will then have an opprotunity to process one of their own dreams in small  breakout rooms. Each session will introduce a different approach, with opportunities for you to use that with your own dream, and we will inlcude the geography of dreams as well as the role colours can play.
