In my recent “audio chat” on Patreon, I spoke a little about why I believe we are missing an opportunity for healing when we don’t pay attention to our dreams, when we don’t dive deeper into the dream experience, and when we don’t meaningfully engage with our children about their dreams. (This chat episode is free and available to the public; you don’t need to be a subscriber to my Patreon to listen.)
I wasn’t planning on speaking so long or so passionately about my position that dreams should be taken more seriously than they are, or at least deserving of our curiosity in the same way we get curious about diet, fitness, sleep, and relationships. But I’m glad the conversation went that way because at the end, I realized I hadn’t yet articulated why dreams matter so much to me, and why I maintain they should matter to you. When I listened back to the episode before posting, I thought to myself, “Wow. I really care about this.” It’s funny what happens when you have a platform that feels safe for full self-expression. My Patreon offers that to me. Through our work with dreams, I hope to offer that to my clients.
If you are interested in the type of research I am doing, and how I use dreamwork for healing, checking out “Dreaming Out Loud” on Patreon is a good place to get started. There are two episodes available to the public for free; and a subscription (which funds my research) starts at $3/month. Higher levels of support are available as well. Some levels include a trial dream session with me. Learn more here.
