Each morning you have the possibility to share your dreams in a group and discuss them using the ‘If it was my dream’ (IIWMD) method. You use this sentence to indicate that this is your interpretation of the dream that is shared. The most important rule is to always be respectful towards the dreamer and create a safe environment to prepare for the year ahead.
Each day you will read a blog and get an incubation. Using this incubation, it is easy to tune into dreams. each morning you can share your dreams on the forum and talk about it with other participants.
You can sign up for the Holy Nights here or treat yourself to the golden package with offers an additional dream consultation. In this consultation we can talk about your experiences during the event or discuss
one of your dreams in length. You can sign up for the Golden Package here.
