Imagery and dreaming are both means of looking inside. By looking inside we find the source of our blocks and the tools to transform them.
Imagery classes work with a technique for dreaming while awake, accessing the spontaneous imagination through a series of short prompts around the exploration of a topic.
Topics vary by semester. At check-out please specify the class you are choosing in the instructions to seller.
Speaking in Image
Dreaming is composed of images. Learning how to read and speak in the language of images is integral to understanding and dialoguing with your dreams, and for using dreams as a tool for transformation.
This class uses the Tarot as a means of teaching this image language. The Tarot is an ancient set of images that speak to the human journey. We can understand them as a dream, and learn to read them as such. The varied images of the deck allows us to explore numerous principles of dreaming such as noticing, describing, patterns, directions, numbers, colors, duality, being incarnate in form, the dynamic tension between linear and vertical, and more.
We do not work with divination in this class; rather, we use the imaginative and instructive images of the Tarot as a teaching tool for deepening a dreaming practice.
This class is structured in a series of 10 classes per semester. Each semester one or more cards will be looked at as a dream, and worked with as such, including through sets of imagery exercises. It is not necessary to have your own Tarot deck, though it is recommended for better viewing, and for working with in between classes. The deck used in class will be the Rider-Waite, and it is recommended that if you get your own deck that you get this one.

Spring 2023: Creating Light Within
How do you bring light into a dark world?
Each time we look within, and dream, we encounter our light body. As we respond to these images, making any needed corrections, we create more light – in our Self, and light that expands outward into our relationships with Other and World. For this, dreaming work is both individual, and communal. Increasing our light makes us a beacon of light in the world.
This imagery class will work on building our inner scaffolding of light. We will do imagery exercises to encounter our dream body, and learn how to move through it into the place of revelation, and then how to bring revelation back to manifestation. With homework you will learn to delight the soul. You will also learn how to build a prayer practice, and create a sacred place for your prayer-time.
