Jesus often spoke and taught in parables—stories filled with metaphor, symbolism, and hidden messages that turned usual circumstances upside down. Our dreams at night are very similar, and while they often seem important for us to process, we may not know how to do so. Exploring dreams through different methods and from other perspectives can be helpful as we look to make sense of the mysterious stories that God, the Dream-Maker, sends us to help us grow in holiness and wholeness. In this retreat, we will explore some basic dream theory and ways to work with our dreams, to facilitate new insights into the meaning and messages in our dreams. Sharing during the retreat will require some openness and vulnerability, as you are invited to submit a written dream to process with your fellow retreatants, but you can expect the experience to be both rich and fun. We will have some prayer time with Scripture and information/handouts about dream theory, but the majority of our time will be spent exploring our night dreams.
Please register by April 4. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at email@example.com. We strongly encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
