Embodied DreamworkThe Wisdom of the Body and the Dream
Why Embodied Dreamwork?
We call this type of dreamwork Embodied Dreamwork because it brings together the wisdom of not just the dreams but of the experience in our bodies of the dreams and the experience and memory we carry in our bodies. Not just that – but also the wisdom and the memory that we carry in our bodies.
We carry memory in our cells – ancestral memory, soul memory. When our dreams activate our soul memory and body memory, then alchemical change can happen. Change that affects not just our understanding, our comprehension of ourselves, our mindfulness but also all that we carry in our body. Dreams can change how we are in relationship to our soul selves and our bodies.
What is the How of Dreams?
Dreams teach us through story, through the way we experience the dream landscape inside of us and through relationship with the figures who come in our dreams. Think of it this way – Someone could tell us that it is very scary to be chased by a bear through woods and we could easily agree. Yes, that must be true.
But the dream puts us in the woods and puts the bear behind us so that we experience the fear.
Dreams also give us the story of who we are and who we are not from the dream landscape, the archetypal realm, the place that is beyond how we have been raised, conditioned, patterned through our outer life experience to see ourselves.
