Description of Challenge
The difficult times we are going through urgently require from us that we jump out of the victim role, learn to trust ourselves and realize that we have the power to change this world, and tap into our individual and collective creative potential in search of new and inventive solutions which our dreams are full of.
« We should regard dreams as an endangered species… They represent our primordial habitat, our last wilderness, and we must protect them with as much fervor as the rainforests, the ozone layer, the elephant and the whale. » (Anthony Stevens – The Two-Million-Old-Year Self)
Los Portales community has experienced for more than 30 years that sharing our dreams in a group creates a strong and deep feeling of connectedness whilst also helping us understand and live our singularity. Dream work allows people to find their unique and particular place in a group, to experience a strong sense of meaning in their life and to discover their personal task (personal myth).
Dreams don’t only tell us that the power is within us, they also make us feel this, and they always push us towards the highest version of ourselves, which creates a group of empowered people. They also give voice to what we don’t want to listen to, they make the invisible visible thus creating deep democracy in our inner world as well as in our groups. The world and the earth also dream through us, and when we explore this kind of dream we become much more empathetic with world issues and acquire a deep felt understanding of our place and role in the complexity of this huge living system we call planet earth. Our activism develops from the inside out.
Dreamwork acts as an internet connection between our daily mind and another level of consciousness in which we have already developed solutions to our individual and collective issues and challenges.
It allows all voices to have a channel of expression, broadens our identity beyond our limits and belief system, and helps us to integrate all aspects of ourselves. Additionally, through group dreamwork we nourish the connection with the essence and blueprint of our communities and projects.
