Connecting to the Body through Imagery + Dreaming | Sunday April 23 @ 13:00-15:30

Size Guide

Our body is always speaking to us in images.
This visual language can be easy to miss when we are awake – when we sleep, we see it as dreams.  While sleeping and awake, dreams and images send us little messages – telling us where we might be blocked or showing us patterns that might need healing, including those that show up as health issues. 

We can think of ourselves as operating with four simultaneous 'bodies': physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.  An imbalance in any of these creates an imbalance in all of them.  Conversely, repairing one brings repair to all.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, healing starts from understanding the body.  Practitioners identify patterns - not symptoms - to understand and open blocks and restore the body to health on all levels. 

When we are in dialogue with our bodies - for example, learning to understand it through images and dreams - we can become active participants in their own healing, helping both practitioner and Self to move more intentionally through the healing process.  

In this interactive workshop, Bonnie Buckner (Ph.D) shares an introduction to how to develop an imagery and dreaming practice that enables you to better communicate with your body. By connecting to your own inner visual dialogues, you can become more present to how you feel about what’s going on within your bodies.
