Dreams are the stories God tells about us every night in a language deeper than words. The emotion-laden imagery of dreams is the primary speech of Holy Wisdom and our own spiritual mothertongue. Through dreams, God calls us, names us, loves us, challenges us, and changes us. Responding to dreams is a powerful, practical means of spiritual growth.

With the help of a Gospel story, we’ll link lectio divina and dreamwork. Then you’ll explore your own dreams: you’ll learn how to play with them, pray with them, share them respectfully, integrate their wisdom, and grow into greater wholeness. Even if you never recall your dreams, you can participate fully. Nightmares welcomed, privacy honored, laughter guaranteed.

Laura Huff Hileman, M.A., M.S., is a certified Spiritual Director and Dream Consultant trained at the Haden Institute. Through Fire by Night Dreamwork, she has been facilitating dream groups and teaching dreamwork since 1999. She likes living with enough structure to give the soul a place to flourish and enough creative chaos to make it all worthwhile. Currently she’s working on a Community Dreamwork Initiative to bring dreamwork into public awareness. She hopes it will foster compassion among diverse peoples and creative activism for the environment. Laura is a lifelong Presbyterian and mom of three wonderful sons.
