How it works
The facilitator will ask the dreamer questions, but not give an absolute interpretation of the dream, or dreams, in return. It is up to the dreamer to interpret what feels true to them based on the dialogue that occurs with themselves, or with a facilitator.
The stories, even if unfamiliar, that occur in dreams can be very powerful. There is something that happens with people. It seems like you tap into either:
- A collective unconscious memory
- Lineage connected to genetics memory or
- A past life lineage
Of course, I have no idea which, if any, of these is true. Maybe none. But the primal nature of the reactions that occur seems far beyond the experiences of this lifetime so often. I personally have said so many times "I know I had a difficult childhood, but this dream is intense beyond anything I've experienced..."
Doing dreamwork, in my view, is for somebody who is either curious, or a seeker, or simply wants "more" from their life. It's also for people who don't particularly want to seek advice or insights from the regular routes. Or perhaps they have tried more mainstream routes of self discovery or therapy and the results are not what they've desired.
