Leanne has a way of explaining that is revealing and clarifying. She moves through the sutras not so much as ideas, but closer to a guided meditation.  ~Online participant, 2018

My brain clings to the Western way of acquiring knowledge and this was an earth shattering approach to the study of the sūtras.

Dreams: Their language, symbolism and healing potential

Workshop Details

What is the purpose of our dreams?

What effect are they meant to have?

Bewildering, Inspiring, Awesome, Frightening, Intense!
Our nightly journey to the underworld is filled with images that are often hard to comprehend.

But there is a reason why Vishnu, the Divine Dreamer of the world dream, plays such a prominent role in Hindu Mythology; his dream, represented by the lotus, is the flowering of human consciousness.

The ability to interpret our dreams opens us to a conscious and intimate relationship with the nonphysical world.

Dreams help point us to those hidden parts of ourselves that are just within reach.

This is a fun workshop where we will discuss the key steps in dream interpretation and, together, tend a few individual dreams. 

You will learn to:

Better understand the purpose of dreams

Raise awareness of the less visible dimensions of psyche and move past resistance to its messages

Integrate and expand your capacity to know your authentic self

2019 Dates: TBD
Where: hosted LIVE online via Zoom
Length: 3 hours
Cost: By donation, $25 suggested
