Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Working with Dreams with Michael Eales

Sat 16 - Sat 23 Sep 2023

Working with Dreams

This is an adventure with the self. We will follow a journey of creative discovery where you can tap into your creative process, move through blocks, rediscover the power of play, and reconnect with your life's dream.

Dreams are a powerful tool that we often overlook. They are a place of healing and inspiration, if only we could remember them more. We will work with dreams to hear the messages of our unconscious and higher conscious minds. We will work with the physiology of sleep in order to access dream states and recall dreams. We will learn about different types of dream, and even look at the potential of lucid dreaming. We will also explore different systems of dream interpretation.

We will use structured dreaming techniques, visualisation, shamanic ritual, storytelling, art and writing, singing and dance.

You will get all the support you need to reflect, to heal, to express and to celebrate. This intensive process can liberate your creativity, and help you to trust your own unconscious more.
