Announcing: Dream Sharing Virtual Circle

About Dream Sharing

Dream Sharing Virtual Circle is a TGM workshop series In this facilitated dream sharing group, we explore our dreams in an environment of mutual support. Participants are supported in sharing their own dreams and reflecting on the dreams of others. You don’t need to be a prolific dreamer to benefit from participation – this process is expansive and reflective for all participants. We’ll also share hints on how to cultivate a dream practice, including dream incubation, keeping a dream journal, and relating to your dreams through art.

Location and Time

We’ll meet virtually on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00. 

This is an open group, so you can join us for one or more sessions.

Sessions are Oct. 29, Nov. 5, Nov. 12, Nov. 19, Nov 26, Dec. 3, and Dec. 10.

This group is offered on a pay-what-you-can basis.

Materials Needed:

  • A dream journal to be used in one or all workshops is encouraged but is not required. This will be used to help document dreams and the processes shared in our group sessions.
  • An Open Mind: We invite all attendees to come to our workshops with an open heart and mind to learn and grow in this newfound shared space.

Upcoming Workshops:

Meditative Drawing

Monday, November 7th 2022 

Presented by: Dr. Karen McDowell

Rooted in mindfulness practices, meditative drawing is an in-the-moment activity that calms the nervous system, reduces anxiety, and helps with emotional regulation. This technique can be done anytime, anywhere, making it a really *handy* coping skill!

Grounded in Repetition

Monday, November 21st 2022 

Presented by: Chloe McDowell & Dr. Karen McDowell

Continuing your art journaling mindfulness practice, this workshop will help you see the things around you in a whole new way. By printing repeating patterns using household items, we will practice grounding techniques and mindful printing practices.

Messy Journaling

Monday, December 5th 2022 

Presented by: Monique Champagne & Dr. Karen McDowell

For anyone who has forgotten that they ARE already an artist, this workshop is for you. We’ll tackle journaling anxiety head on by approaching it with wild abandon – making a mess may be the best way to process your inner world.
