"This being human is a guest-house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture, still,
treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond."
Sharing dreams in a small group is a powerful way to work with the realm of the Dreamtime. As the images of one person's dream are brought to life for the group, other participants find their places in the dream - the way the dream touches them and relates to their particular human experience. It is uncanny how often dreamers in a group find so much commonality in their dreams. It is as if the Dreamtime itself gathered these particular folks together for this moment.
Sessions for dream groups run for 2 hours and meet monthly. Groups are kept small with 4 to 5 participants. There is generally time to work with two or three dreams in a session, and those who did not get to share a dream will be the first to share the next time. If you are interested in joining a group, please send a message to Teryne on the contact page, and she will get back to you with more information about groups that might have an opening. Dreamers who join a group are asked to make a 3-month commitment for the sake of trust and coherence in the groups. Also, we must practice confidentiality in our dream groups to keep the space safe for the dreamers.
