conscious dreaming ceremonies

“Empty yourself of everything,
Let the mind become still.
The ten thousand things rise and fall
while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source.
Returning to the source is stillness,
which is the way of nature.”
To help navigate these extraordinary times, we have an opportunity to align our energies with the natural cycles – to both individually and collectively explore our capacity to consciously dream our world into being.
Over the winter months the imaginal Collective are inviting 10,000 Conscious Dreamers to gather together virtually and follow a sequence of dreaming ceremonies deeply rooted in ancient Earth wisdom traditions.
‘Dreaming’ is an interconnected field of consciousness, which expresses itself through the relationship between our bodies, night – and day – dreams, each other and the world around us.
This is an ocean of intelligent energy that transcends boundaries of time and space: there is no separation in this realm, only an ongoing process of evolution and growth.
When we speak of Conscious Dreaming we mean awareness of our experience of relationship with Life, our co-creation with the Universe and what is needed for our own and our collective evolution.
Meet the hosts
Collectively your hosts for this ceremony have spent over 100 years living and sharing these sacred teachings. Prepare yourself for an ancient journey of deep integrity and authenticity that is relevant for these extraordinary times. A journey that ensures that the lessons of this year are understood and prepares you to approach next year from a perspective of love and joy.
Taking place over the winter moons there are four rounds and five ceremonies:
Each round covers the days in between the full moon cycles, giving an opportunity for personal and collective reflection. During this time there will be space on the imaginal Collective portal to communicate and share your experiences with the conscious dreaming community.
Each ceremony will be a guided online ritual, aligning our energies together and with the elements of earth, air, fire and water. The final ceremony at Spring Equinox will powerfully release our collective dreams.
Ceremonies will be online and more details will be provided upon sign up.
