Time: 4:00 to 5:00 pm PST

While dreaming, we find ourselves in a world we know to be real. Only upon awakening do we call it a dream. Embodied imagination is a method to relive the dream as a real event. We slow down our remembering of the dream, a slow motion leading to a flashback in which the dreaming environment vividly reconstitutes itself around us. Keeping interpretation at bay, we focus on the events of the dreaming while in a hypnagogic state. We explore a variety of perspectives since the dream ego is only one of the presences being dreamed.

In this way, profound changes of perception can occur that may uproot our limiting habitual consciousness. We find ourselves moving closer to the embodied core of our being where life matters more acutely, instead of living in a holding pattern at the periphery of our existence. By way of demonstration with a dream of a participant, we will show the healing effects of dream embodiment.
