This one touched me extra deeply. Mary Jo Heyen, practitioner of Natural Dreamwork and author of Dreaming into the Mystery: Explorations into Being with the Dreams and Visions of the Dying, companions dreamers and their families in hospice care. Each one of her stories touched me, as did her way of speaking, and her way of listening. Click Play to hear about:

  • Her childhood relationship to dreams, including a dream of her own at age 4 that touched something profound, and her father’s PTSD dreams
  • Why she practices “Natural Dreamwork,” as taught by Roger Kamenetz
  • The story of a man who dreamt, just before he died, of figures he’d been missing all his life
  • The differences Mary Jo has noticed between the dreams of the dying and the dreams at any other time of life
  • Her reflections on companioning people when there’s nothing to “fix”
  • Advice for people who aren’t trained in dreamwork and are caring for someone at end of life
  • The power of patience and quiet
  • Our conversation about engaging with dreams in groups as compared to with a one-on-one practitioner
  • Learning from dreams to hold our own pain with compassion, so that we can sit with someone else, soul seeing soul, and “not touch their pain with our fear”
  • The dream of the wife of a man in hospice care, and what she suddenly understood through the dream
  • and so much more. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
