The Dream Group I’ve been in for nearly 20 years has been at 7 members for the last two or three years, with the addition of a Chinese American at that time. Not much difference in dreams across cultures, but some. There are generally understood meanings for many symbols in dreams, with our own life and cultural experiences coloring those symbols with a layer of personal meanings.
Now we’re back to 6 members – she has been transferred to Philly, and from her dreams and our intuitive drawing of Tarot cards at the end of today’s session, she’s going to be far happier there than here. Not that she was unhappy here, but clearly she’s heading into a brighter future.
Almost everyone in the group is heading into a major shift of one kind or another – work, art themes, a wedding for one and another falling in love. It’s fun to pay attention to dreams, with their information sometimes on what’s coming, mostly on how to handle what’s here right now. A nighttime snapshot of what’s going on in each of our lives.
We’re already planning a Dream Group visit to Philly early next year – it’ll be fun have a gathering in a new city.
