if I keep saying that all of the dream stuff I do is, “so good!” y’all are going to stop believing me.
But, please don’t stop believing me. Because, I’m telling the truth.
Dreams have the ability to carry us to a sweet spot that’s just deep enough into some struggle or obstacle to begin to heal, but not so deep that we get lost in the pain.
And when you do dream work in community (that means in a dream group or in a trusted safe one-on-one session), then you receive the added value of team work.
Anyone who has attended a dream retreat, dream group or dream conference; or anyone who has ever worked a dream with a therapist, Jungian analyst, psychologist or dream coach knows that I am telling the truth. “So Good!” is a natural response to watching a dream (which seems random and disconnected) suddenly strike a chord that resonates on a deeply personal level with a deeply personal issue you’ve been facing.
In fact, I might stop describing dream work as “so good!” because that certainly doesn’t express my depth of gratitude. It doesn’t fully encompass my sense of wonder at what your dreaming and waking mind can work through when they are in sync.
So please indulge me when I call dream work “so good” time and time again.
Let my excitement and my passion about dreams continue to excite you because I’m telling a deep truth here y’all.
I’m even writing this post in response to once again being overwhelmed at the power of dream work. Last night was our monthly dream group at the Ignatius House, and we had 3 new participants. They came in full of curiosity, but also full of trepidation.
Two hours later, we were all leaving feeling deeply humbled and grounded in awe and wonder; eagerly sharing our own version of “Wasn’t that SO GOOD?!” with each other as we headed to our cars. I’ve been facilitating dream groups and one-on-one dream sessions for years, and I still just shake my head every time saying to myself, this stuff is “so good!” y’all.
Peace and sweet dreams Dears,
