Labyrinth walking gently opens up the cracks and crevices of our imagination, revealing our inner knowing through metaphor, images & our senses

The beautiful Labyrinth will be at the Heart of the day, as we walk, journey with the drum and gently gather fresh dream messages arising from our soul. The labyrinth is an ancient tool for meditation, mindfulness and opening to higher consciousness simply by walking. Just like nature we are resting before awakening to the energy of spring that will bring forth new life and creative ideas that will need tending to with care and attention. The day provides fertile ground to receive and discover what we want to plant -our desires, wishes and future goals.

Learn & practice Essential Dreaming techniques and how to recall and use the information and images as guidance for healing, problem solving. Gather ideas and inspiration for creative actions, a book, a painting... Dream journey to reclaim parts of your spirit wounded long ago, by reclaiming and reframing the story into strength and wholeness.

Enjoy individual time for reflection, writing, drawing & resting deep into the Heart of your Soul’s wisdom for rejuvenation. Come dressed for comfort & warmth.

We all Dream... come join a casual and fun way to work with and learn about your dreams.

Do you want to learn methods to improve  dream recall, learn your own dream language, and practical application of dreams to daily life, including helping kids with nightmares? Your dreams offer insights and guidance into your personal life, career, creativity, health and well-being.  We often receive clues to what is happening the next day.        

We all have nightly adventures and there is so much wisdom to bring back to our waking life.  Some dreams are healing, sometimes  see a loved one who has passed, and even pets. Often an adventurous dream can give us clues and perspective on our jobs & co-workers.  Many inventions have been seen in dreams and made real.  Do you keep a dream journal by your bed? Do this and record your dreams. Start now--this is the best way to get better at recalling and watching how your life is in sync with your dreams.

Learn More at home or office? Gather together a group of your friends for a two hour dive into the DreamTime.  You will return with juicy clues, images and vibrant stories to tell.  We will explore the dreams as they apply to your real daily life and work. You will lean how to honor your dreams or act on the dream advice. You, "the dreamer"  is always the expert on what their dream means! Your dream is your story, your message... you will know what 'feels' true. With time and practice you will develop your own personal dream dictionary or your 'markers' and meanings. This is how I have learned to take head of certain dram images that have be pre-cognitive to seismic activity of very large proportions.

Shamanic Dream Healing Session- remote and in person …. Re-set your energy field, release and clear attachments, facilitate healing of old wounds and traumas. Energetic healing works in person and remotely….thought, prayer, vibrational healing work is can be done via a shift of space and time…

l use my drum to guide me on a Shamanic dream journey to find and release old or stuck energy….I gather your lost energy, use vibration of the drum to shift the old pattern to realign your spirit and energetic filed for Wholeness and vibrant wellbeing. The session helps you reclaim and align with your authentic Whole self.

One client had been in a car accident several years ago resulting in injuries that caused pain and injury to her extremity, away from the initial point of trauma. In the shamanic healing dream journey I saw a large whale with a long rope attached to its tail with a heavy weight at the end dragging the whale down..I worked visually and energetically to untie the rope… .releasing the weight from the whale and from the painful situation so it could surface and breather easy. It was an odd metaphor but the situation was a large “whale of an issue that had been dragging on in her life. She identified with the imagery of freeing the whale from this rope and soon was working with a new doctor and had her foot treated and more body work . After many months she got great news that her foot that was previously scheduled for surgery no longer needed it… When we release and shift old traumatic energetic attachments our lost power returns and our body can self-align …our energy flows freely and a shift takes place..our ‘whole’ self heals..spiritually and physically.

 Remote session includes initial phone consult; followup phone call and email with information and healing imagery gathered from the journey for you to continue working with as your realign and release blocks and attachments.        

 Remote healing  phone: $50  In person: $85 session
