DREAM INTERPRETATION
Thursday, September 28th
7pm

At some point, we all have dreams that we know are trying to tell us something.  And while there are many reference books assigning meaning to the images revealed in our subconscious, those meanings come from people who do not know us or our lives, personally.  In fact, everyone has their own individual view of this world and all that is contained within it.  What frightens one person gives another one purpose.  So how can any dream symbol have a 'one-size-fits-all' meaning?  Join us as we learn to explore our dreamscapes from our own unique perspective. By entering our dreams as a student approaches a teacher, we open our minds and hearts to the rich landscape of the subconscious mind and access our higher self.  This workshop is a must-see for the serious student as well as the cosmic traveler.

Registration is required. The Zoom link will be sent the day before the program.

cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and haunting representations of bones against the stark desert sky. This talk will examine how her strikingly inventive works conveyed a spirit of
