The Dream Gate Connection
Taking dreams from its quiet place within the sleeping domain we will investigate the many dreaming moment opportunities that rise to us outside the bedroom. Dr. Janet Piedilato shares how dreams occur in the altered state of consciousness and if we pay attention we can capture them during waking. These dream moments are periods which extend consciousness assisting our waking awareness with intuitive creativity, problem solving, and spiritual insight. Dreaming beyond sleeping awakens hidden potential.
In This Session:
- Dreaming is an altered state which can be accessed beyond sleep
- Paying attention to dreams empowers waking consciousness
- Perplexing dreams can be explored for better understanding in what is called the waking dream
