I recently finished editing a book chapter on Landscape and Ancestral Dreaming in a book that IASD is publishing on Dreams that Change Our Lives. This publication is an anthology that covers a range of areas to include: spirituality; childhood; ancestry; grieving; health; lucidity; creativity and transcendence. Dreamers in this book share personal stories and dreams that highlight the power of dreams to transform and change lives.

Transformational Dreamwork

Posted by Susannah Benson

The focus of DNA's work in 2015 has been on the theme of change—inner and outer, and how dreams assist us to navigate life cycles and transitions. Dreams are a powerful window on natural transformation processes. Our theme continues in our February conference on Dreams and the Eclipse of the Creative Psyche with Dr Michael Conforti of the Assisi Institute.

Listen to Dr Michael Conforti talk about the generative power of dreamwork and the opportunity to participate in the Australian Dream Patterning course commencing August 12.

Navigating Life Cycles

Navigating Life Cycles

Posted by Dr Susannah Benson

As we navigate our way through life we often seem to be following a cyclic path where we encounter periods of relative stability, intertwined with a forward arc of change and movement which is sometimes experienced slowly, gracefully and at other times—rapidly, chaotically.

In this interview, Dr Gillespie shares how the experience of feeling both accompanied and guided through life by dreams has been both a gift and a challenge. She shares how following the impact of a powerful dream, she retired from her long term psychotherapy practice and embraced full time doctoral research into the psychological experience of engaging with climate change issues.
