Please join me in forming The Dream, Mythology and Fairytale Conversation Circle, who will begin meeting in January 2022.

You can email expressions of interest to [email protected]

The purpose of this group is to embark on a shared journey in which we will explore and experience the intimate connection between the imaginal realm and our every day lives.

  • Together we will discuss the symbolism and motifs of dreams, fairytales and mythologies, with reference to our own experiences, cultures and imaginations.
  • We will read texts from my Active Imagination journal which documents ‘dreams’, ‘visions’ and ‘journeys’ with my unconscious.  These will give us a theme, focus, or topic for each session.
  • We will complete each session by doing a  drawing (using creative writing or mark making) so that you also have a record of your journey.

By discussing shared symbols and individual meanings we will better understand the stories that shape our experience of the world and our ability to make them our own so that they become stories we can live.

Together, we are ‘A Dreaming’.
