Come Sail Away With Me!

Jan 22, 2018

I don't have all the details yet, but I'm so excited about this that I wanted to let you know first. I will be leading a Dreamwork Intensive Workshop on a fabulous cruise to the Pacific Northwest! The sail date is September 14th and while we're out at sea we'll talk all about dreaming. I mean, what better way to explore the magic inside you than relaxing on a luxurious ship with fellow dreamers.



Here are some of the highlights:
  • 7 night Pacific Coastal Cruise starting September 14th from Seattle, Washington. Stops include Astoria, Oregon, San Francisco, and Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia on the Celebrity Solstice.
  • Group sessions where we will be exploring the importance of dreams, how to remember dreams, how to understand your dreams, how to ease your stress and worry and fun exercises in how to boost your self-awareness and live your life with greater purpose and passion.
  • One-on-one sessions where you can explore your dreams and see how you can use them to gain clarity and inner wisdom.
  • Games, gifts and more surprises!
In the coming weeks I'll have more details, including final pricing, how to sign up, deadline for signing up and more. Stay tuned!

 

Can You Smell In Your Dreams?

A client recently asked me this question, and since I have never smelled anything in my dreams, I wasn't suer how to answer this. Then I came across this article from the New York Times that sheds some light on this issue.


“Surprisingly little” is known about dreams of smells and other sensations, according to a 1998 study, but a significant minority of subjects in the study reported dreams of scents.
                          
The relatively small study, done in Canada and published in the journal Perceptual and Motor Skills, included 49 men and 115 women. Questionnaires and two to three weeks of morning diaries assessed their dreams. The subjects were not specifically asked to keep track of sensory dreams.

Among the 3,372 dream reports collected, sensations of smell or taste showed up in only about 1 percent. In all, 25 subjects reported a total of 34 dreams of smelling something.

Smells showed up at least once in the reports from 2 percent of the men and 20.9 percent of the women. The authors conjectured that the imbalance might have arisen because women are more interested in odor than men are.

The researchers said the findings tended to confirm the results of previous studies of sensory dreams. But of eight such studies, six were very small, with reports from 13 people or fewer.
