Dancing with Fear: Exploring Nightmares

6:30-8:30PM | Thursday April 23
Anima Mundi Apothecary|
31 Noble St, Brooklyn, NY 11222, USA

Paths of dreaming & visionary experience sometimes lead us to experiences of inner fears, phobias, and shadow selves. When faced with a painful memory, night terror, or spontaneous nightmare, we may choose new ways in which to meet and process the experience. Robert Moss’s school of Active Dreaming teaches that a nightmare is an unfinished dream - that ‘the way out is through,’ and that through continued work with difficult experiences, we may undergo deep healing and resolution.

In this month’s shamanic dreaming circle we explore ways to understand the messages behind our nightmares, repeating dreams, and ancestral fears. We will learn tools for healthy boundaries & protection on our nightly travels, and make a ‘test flight’ aided by the sound of the drum to receive guidance and healing around stories, symbols, and archetypes that go bump in the night.
