Online Courses from Mindfunda

Online courses are the most convenient way to keep learning. In your own time, at your own convenience. In your pajamas with a cup of coffee, or when your housemates are away so you have some peace and quite. Mindfunda proudly presents two online courses about dreaming.

Eleventh Holy Night: Jan 04 – 05

Tonight the moon is in the sign of Scorpio. A sign associated with transformation, death and rebirth. This night we focus on the month of November 2016. Preparation for winter. Dreaming with the Moon in Scorpio is associated with the deceased, so tonight we will incubate an a beloved deceased ancestor to guide us in 2016. Use the day to meditate on the incubation and make it your own. (accessible exclusively for logged-in MoreMindfunda members!)

Fifth Holy Night: Dec 29 – 30

Tonight the moon is in the sign of Virgo. A sign associated with rules and regulations, but also with intestines and food. The incubation tonight is focused on how to nurture our soul this new year. This night we focus on the month of May 2016. The beginning of spring, new opportunities, new changes. We will use our dreaming mind to incubate a dream about how you can nurture your soul next year. Use the day to meditate on the incubation and make it your own. (accessible exclusively for logged-in MoreMindfunda members!)

Third Holy Night: Dec 27 – 28

Tonight the moon is in the sign of Leo. A sign associated with the animus. The incubation tonight is focused on meeting our animus. This night we focus on the month of March 2016. The beginning of spring, new opportunities, new changes. We are going to need animus energy in this month to achieve new goals. The question to concentrate on is: “How can I connect with my animus energy in the best way possible?” The incubation I share below (accessible exclusively for logged-in MoreMindfunda members!)

First Holy Night: Dec 25 – Dec 26

Tonight the moon is in the sign of Cancer. Dreams during the moon in Cancer have a tendency to be about light-dark issues. “Is there light to be found in the dark, or does the light come from heaven above” might be a question to meditate on tonight. Or you could ask a dream about how to embrace and accept your own shadow in the next year. The incubations I share below (MoreMindfunda members only), is focussed on the month of January 2016. Use the day to meditate on the incubation and make it your own. Register or login first.
