Somatic Dreamwork with Angela
Just as no one else can tell you what you should feel inside, no one else can tell you what your dreams mean.
Dreams are alive; they are like plants growing towards the sun. Dreamwork can help us identify any conditions that keep them from flourishing and help them to grow.
The process is collaborative. Together, we will create a space where you will learn more about yourself and develop a new way to relate to your inner experience.
Through this increase of awareness, you have the chance to overcome your nightmares, shift from dissociation to embodiment and begin to see life from a fresh perspective.
Dreams are creative works. We can sometimes have a "just right" feeling when exploring the collective symbology of the dream. Yet, we may lose the sense of energy in them if we look up the answer in a book and simply analyze them from our linear left-brain thinking. Instead, I find dreamwork is most powerful when it is approached with curiousity toward body-feelings.
I call this work Somatic Dreamwork because it’s with the help of the dreamer’s intuitive, felt-sense that we see the gifts and messages of the dreams emerge.
Much like conditions in our lives, some dreams are unpleasant, and may be repetitive, murky or even frightening. But dreams can always be entered and worked with. When tended like a garden, your world has the chance to open up in new and beautiful ways.
My approach to dreamwork is birthed from my experience with my Jungian-based Mentor Dr. Ana Mozol, my certification with Leslie Ellis as a Focusing-oriented Therapist and a lifetime of tending to my dreams.
