“Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.” – Joseph Campbell
Every Sunday, we come together by phone to share our dream stories as medicine for the community. As we pass the virtual talking piece around the circle, we take turns listening and speaking as we navigate the landscape of the dream. Every member, whether new or experienced, brings their unique style and perspective.
There is healing in the telling of dreams, and by listening we are able to offer new perspectives. There are always sweet surprises in Sunday Council, and Dream Council has become a weekly ritual that enriches many of our lives. We honor the ancestors and all the dreams that have come before, and also the descendants and all the dreams that are to come, by keeping the ”dream flame” lit in this simple yet profound practice.
