Family Dream Sharing cultivates a deep trust and communication rooted in the language of the soul. The gifts of growing this practice as a family include having a deep level of connection and communication to ones' self and other family members, as well as nature, animals, the cosmos and the larger human family. Dreams can show us the big picture of how we are all connected, teaching us empathy and respect for self and others.
Indigenous peoples across the planet have historically known the importance of dreaming and sharing dreams as a community. This was a way to know where to find food to hunt, what plants may heal, who to marry, or a safe place to call home. Our dreaming ancestors were able to survive successfully because they knew how to dream true. We have lost these connections as a dreaming society in our western, modern, civilized world. We each hold the memory of our indigenous ancestry in our DNA, and can begin to cultivate a dreaming community once again by dreaming, sharing and acting on our dreams.
