The DYW Leadership Dream Class II builds on the skills learned in Dream Class I, moving them from theory to application.
Dreaming asks for conscious response. Dreaming is the language of our experience. It is the inner, visual dialogue that tells us where we are in our life, what we are feeling, what we know, what is blocking us, and what is waiting to come forward – a true dream of self, a forgotten skill or talent, or a new perspective and possibility that we are missing in the waking present. These are big messages and we are meant to do something with them. Dream Class I taught the basics for catching these messages and learning to speak their visual language; Dream Class II moves into applying the messages to waking time transformations.
We are dreaming all the time; this means that creativity, presence, and shifting past blocks is available at any moment. Whatever we are dreaming at night we are living in the day; what we are living in the day we are dreaming at night. Dream Class II focuses on this so that you will begin to hear the dream of waking time, and immediately be able to apply the dream techniques of identifying patterns and true necessities, moving past story to the deeper meaning, expanding perspectives, and resolving conflicts. This practice increases your ability to be present, fluid, resilient, and creative in problem-solving and working with others. This presence is being an Awake Dreamer.
In this class you will:
- Deepen your dream acuity through practice
- Sharpen your skills for noticing, pattern-recognition, identifying necessities, moving past story to deeper meaning
- Learn to identify multiple perspectives and discern viability of these perspectives
- Develop your creativity and intuition
- Apply dream techniques to waking life scenarios
Dreaming develops through experience. Dream Class II is an integral part of the Leadership series, and can be taken multiple times.
This class is a mix of pedagogy and experiential practice. It works with one dream per session provided by participants, and includes some light homework activities between classes.
