Retreats and Workshops

Dreams and Community

An Embodied Dreamwork retreat is an opportunity to step into an intimate group setting to explore the deep intentions of the dream. I have been leading groups for over 14 years in this unique way of working with dreams.

In a retreat, each participant is given the opportunity to step into an embodiment of a cluster of dreams through Embodied Stringwork. This process is similar to psychodrama except it uses the elements of the dream and is anchored in the dream experience. In Embodied Stringwork, participants in the group stand in for and enact different parts of a particular dreamer’s cluster of dreams.

In the intimacy of the group, the string work can open the deeper levels of learning, feelings and experience of the dreams for the dreamer. For those who step into another’s dreams, the learning is also deeply profound. Participants have often told me that they learned as much about their own work by participating in someone else’s string work as when they stepped into their own string work session.

My main collaborator in leading retreats is my partner Bill St.Cyr. We have been leading retreats since 2004 from Kripalu to Esalen, the south of France to Santa Cruz, London to Pensacola, Breitenbush to Hollyhock. Over the years of leading retreats, we have continued (and will continue to continue!) to evolve how we work with groups and individuals through collaboration and with great tenderness.

See below for retreat locations and upcoming retreats.

We also lead retreats in collaboration with other dreamwork teachers all over the country – many of which are annual retreats.  We are also open to coming to you for a presentation, weekend workshop or retreat. Contact me for more information –
