What happens when adults get out their colored pencils and freely draw their dreams? “Ah-ha moments,” all over the place. Life-shifting, and even life-saving, ah-ha moments.
Click Play now to listen to me talk with Walter Berry about his dream groups, where participants draw their dreams and share the drawings. I loved every one of his stories.
Walter has been called “The Wizard of Awes.” His upcoming book, Drawn into the Dream, will explore the awe that comes with drawing our dreams, and with seeing other people’s dream drawings. As a past board member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), and a visual artist and lighting designer with a background in theatre arts, Walter brings a love of art and dreams that you’ll hear in his voice.
We talk about
the surprising precognitive dream that led Walter to dive into dreamwork
how each of us was influenced by Jeremy Taylor’s phrase “all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness”
the possibilities that open up when a dream group focuses on a drawing, rather than on the dreamer themselves
and several juicy examples of drawings and dreams. Check out some of the drawings Walter talks about at the show notes: thedreamersden.org/20
