Each night as we drift off to sleep, we enter into one of lifes oldest and most profound mysteries: the world of dreams. Cultures throughout history have been mesmerized by this ethereal state of consciousness, from the Dreamtime stories of Australias Aborigines to the symbolic psychologies of Freud and Jung. The alternate realms of our visionary slumbers present a puzzling paradox, calling into question the true nature of reality. Though much research has been done into the subject, the age-old question of why we dream remains as elusive as ever.
Are dreams a portal to a higher intelligence where prophetic and insightful messages are transmitted? Could they be part of an evolutionary process to advance human consciousness? In this Spore, we will pull back the covers from this mystifying phenomenon to reveal the many shades of dreaming. Evolver Regionals may choose to compare indigenous beliefs with recent scientific studies of dreams, learn techniques for lucid dreaming, or explore the power of creative visualization to manifest vibrant new realities.
Check the list below to find a Spore in your area. Dates may be different depending on the city. You can also email the regional host (via their group page) if youd like to get involved in the planning of the event. If there is not yet a Spore in your community, email jonathan((at))evolver((dot))net to start your own.
