Dream Circles

Dream Circles Facilitated by Tristy Taylor

Depending on your dreamwork experience, you are eligible to join me this Fall for one of my in-depth Dream Circles. I facilitate both a “traditional” Dreamwork Circle on Thursday evenings, and a Dream Art Circle on Sunday evenings.

In these online circles, we use all the dreamwork tools available to us and do dreamwork with the dreams of everyone in the circle. We meet once a week over Zoom for eight weeks, and every participant will have at least one (and often two) opportunities to “work” their dreams with the group. The groups are small (no larger than 12 people) and by the end of our time together, we will have a circle of powerful sharing and connection. I’ve seen friendships born out of my dream circles go on to have decades of connection.

I keep these online dream groups to 12 people maximum, so everyone has a chance to work at least one of their own dreams. That being said, every group session is rich and transformative, because we can get just as many “aha’s” from the work of someone else’s dream, as we can from our own. Each session will have time for a check-in where participants can ask any questions or share insights that came up for them over the previous week and the rest of the time we will be working a dream from the group. 

Doing dreamwork on your own and one-on-one with me is a great way to dive into your dreams, and it’s also an eye-opening experience to have so many other people reflect and share their projections on your dream. The more perspectives/projections, the bigger the expansion and openings can be!

This is the more “traditional” Dream Circle I facilitate. Together we will use the Projective Method, Gestalt Work, and other Dreamwork tools to open up the secrets of each other’s dreams. Circles include some teaching segments and lots of time to dive into the archetypes, symbols and meanings of each other’s dreams.

Fee is $540 per person, which can be paid in two installments of $270, or $495 if paid in full before first class. A $50 non-refundable deposit no later than August 15, 2022 will hold your space. This deposit will be subtracted from your payment for the class.

Dream Art in 2022: An 8-Week Online Dream Circle
Sunday Afternoons over Zoom, 3pm to 5:30 pm PT
October 2nd to November 20th, 2022

In this circle, we will “work” our dreams together, with a focus on Dream Art. There is a long history of artists and makers taking inspiration from their dreams, including many indigenous and aboriginal traditions. From the pre-Raphaelites, to the Impressionists, to the “Manifesto of Surrealism,” artists have been weaving together their dreams and reality. Salvador Dalί In his 1948 book 50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship, explained in detail how he used the hypnogogic and hypnopompic states to invigorate his work. Modern poets, painters, sculptors, musicians, and film-makers have also spoken of the value of dreams for their artistic inspiration. Even those who are not seen as “creative,” like famed dream analyst Carl Jung, created vibrant, colorful drawings and paintings in their dream journals.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN ARTIST TO BE IN THIS CIRCLE. You do have to be willing to create and share artwork, inspired by your dreams and dreamwork. 

All mediums and creative skills are welcome. Some examples of dream art are mandalas, collages, and mask making. The only limit is your imagination and the ways you might scare yourself!
