Waking the Dreamer Within Festival
SpringHill Suites, Longmont, CO
October 16-19, 2014

There is a dreamer that lies within all of us,
the part of us that is always ready to be
awakened to imagination and creativity.

Join us for an inspirational weekend
fostering creativity and authentic
expression, while celebrating the language
of metaphor, through dream work,
storytelling, poetry, music, art and the
written word, and awaken the “dreamer”
that lies within you!

Sunday Special Event

Jeremy TayloeGroup Projective Dreamwork with Jeremy Taylor

"Working with dreams" means remembering and exploring the dreams from sleep with an eye to their deeper meanings. Each one of us is uniquely blind to the deeper meanings of our own dreams, and dream work helps us see what amazing gifts are there, just below the surface of "manifest content" and obvious appearance. It is my assumption that all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness and that only the dreamer knows for certain what his/her dream means.

Jeremy Taylor, a Unitarian Universalist minister and an internationally known innovator of group process in dream work, has worked with dreams for over forty years. He blends the values of spirituality with a Jungian Perspective. He has written four books integrating dream symbolism, mythology and archetypal energy.
