“Dreams at End of Life” with Jeanne Van Bronkhorst, MA,MSW

Dreams have an important role at the end of life, if we can learn to listen to them. Drawing from her experiences as a hospice social worker, Jeanne Van Bronkhorst shows how dreams often bring comfort, peace, and healing at the end of life. They encourage us to restore and strengthen our emotional attachments with each other even as we face our greatest separation. They help prepare us all for the next great leap into a mystery no one can fully comprehend.

 “Heads-Up”  Carlyle Smith, Ph.D., C.Psych.  and Donna-Marie Newfield, R.C.S.T., B.F.R.P.

Medical Intuitive – DreamWork

Have you had a pre-cognitive dream – a dream that appears to portray a future event in your life? A pre-cognitive or ‘Heads-Up’ dream can be useful in a number of ways to enrich your physical and mental health, relationships, safety and career, just to name a few.  Find out how you can use Heads-Up dreams to enhance your life.

“Back at School Again”  Christopher Sowton, ND., F.C.A.H.

Ever wonder about that dream you had about being back at school?  Ever wonder why you’re still having it 20 years later?  One of the most common types of dream in our culture is the dream of being back in school. Whether it is elementary school, high school, college, or university—there’s a familiar problem: late for class, late for a test, unprepared for a test, held back from graduating, has not been going to class, failing a course, etc. We all have our own versions of this type of dream, and they tend to be anxious, frustrating and repetitive.  What can be done about such dreams?  Come and find out!

“Dream Map of the Internal Healing Process”  with Elena Rossi, Msc, ND.

In naturopathic medicine, a wide range of treatment tools are used to understand and address the root cause of a patient’s presenting symptoms. Dreamwork can be used as one of these tools – especially in cases of anxiety, depression, and trauma recovery, dreamwork can drive forward the healing process and at the same time allow a peek into the healing process itself. How can dreamwork help you? Find out more about dreams and the internal healing process.

“Dream Sharing”

Rosemary, practices dreamwork in a rural village on Georgian Bay.  A psychoanalyst mentored by Donald Kalsched and Marion Woodman, Rosemary works with dreams from a Jungian perspective. Allowing the dreams to speak for themselves, our task is to learn how to listen to their metaphors, exploring and amplifying their images with the use of expressive arts.
