Not long ago I listened to some people discuss how difficult it is to get people to participate in dream lucidity. Around twenty years ago I had a conversation with Anne Faraday, one of the first people to popularize dream work, in which she said she and other researchers doubted that dream lucidity might exist. I say we have come quite a distance in twenty years.
For me, most of that twenty years has been spent exploring dreams in one way or another. I have had a book published, DREAMS BEYOND DREAMING, and have conducted some research on group dreaming that gained international acclaim. The history of this group dreaming research, done through Poseidia Institute which I then directed, is being collected for the dream book
I am currently writing: GROUP DREAMING: DREAMS TO THE TENTH POWER Recently my research has taken me along another path though. Much of dream work, like traditional psychology, involves only talking. Yet, as therapist Stanley Kelleman says, "We embody our dreams." I have studied for the past eight years with Hector Kuri Cano, a Mexican therapist who developed what he called Energetic Metatherapy, a method of bioenergetic body work involving all levels of body, mind, and spirit. I have discovered that when dreams are brought to this type of work, the understanding, because it comes from a cellular and experiental experiential level, is much deeper.
Currently I am doing some individual work with people along these lines, as well as some workshops and writing. I will be conducting a workshop in the Tidewater, Virginia area March 23, 24.
If you are interested, or just want to contact me, feel free to E-mail me. The photo, by the way, represents another interest of mine, photography. When Linton asked me for a photo, like most photographers I had none of myself. So I thought I'd share one from another book I'm writing, GUARDIAN ANGELS . That's not really the way I look.
Dreams are a human magic, and have the potential to unite us. I am reminded of a slogan I saw once stitched in silk on a sweater in an exclusive Georgetown shop: "Dream the Revolution." We could.
