CLASS / WORKSHOP
LOJ! “Lift off judgement” and come explore the world of dreams and dreaming in this special Building a Dream Community Workshop. What does it mean to listen in dreams? What sounds do you hear in dreams? Are your dreams a personal guide or source for creativity? What happens when we share our dreams with others? What if dreaming is the key to future building? Join IONE, keeper of dreams, with Rachel Condry, Deep Listening practitioner, for an exploration of “the reality of the dream and the dream of reality.” It is a distinct honor to have Ione here via zoom to lead this in-person dream workshop at Bushel.
