Tending the Inner Landscapes: Group Dream Work

  • SLO Botanical Gardens Oak Pavilion 3450 Dairy Creek Road San Luis Obispo, CA, 93405 United States (map)


with Torrey Byles & Marie Mcree

  • Sharing nighttime dreams with a trusted group of peers offers health and wholeness not only to the individual dreamer, but to the community.

  • Dreams certainly connect us to our authentic selves. When shared with others, they foster healing in society, as well.

  • Naturally occurring in our sleep, dreams bring forth–in metaphorical candor–the most important social and cultural issues of the day.

  • When dreams are shared and appreciated by others, a wonderful and intimate discussion ensues. Participants sense commonality and consensus and, at the same time, realize unique soul perspectives.

Join us for this weekly group exploration. All proceeds from this workshop series will go to support the good work of Outside Now Nature Connection Education and SLO Botanical Gardens!
