Dreamwork for Coaches - An Ancient Experience in a New Context Webinar - July 19th 12N

In reclaiming dreams as an aspect of coaching we validate for our clients that they are being seen in their wholeness. We'll explore the idea of consciousness (and where the prefixes of "sub" and "un" came from) and we'll look at the 3 levels of listening to a dream. Essential to the webinar are volunteers from the chapter who agree to work with their dreams in a demonstration. Join Will Sharon as we discuss dreams in depth.
