The Desire for Love, for Joy
and for Presence
For me the conversation about traumatic experience begins with the belief that love, joy and presence are foundational parts of who we are. That yes, despite how challenging things are in this world, my core belief is that we are being of love.
The challenge that we face though is to give meaning to the word “love” – given that we live in a world where that experience is not the norm…
“Types” of Dreams – or Why There are No Real Types of Dreams.
Welcome to Episode 7 of An [Etymology] of Dreaming.
Welcome back to An Etymology of Dreaming. In this episode we delve into the realm of dream types – or rather the question of can we try to force dreams into “types” that make sense on a personal level.
Traumatic Experience and the
Journey Toward Love
The work that we do is ultimately about finding a place of love and joy within ourselves.
But that, unfortunately, is not always such a simple process.
The reality is that the consciousness of dreams and of many practices, do reflect a possibility of that love and of joy. But they also reflect back the ways that we have lost connection to the part of ourselves that knows they are worthy of this love.
Healing Complex Trauma,
Dreaming and Community
Even with the increased consciousness of trauma and abuse in our culture, it is still really common for people to struggle with seeing, that what they have personally gone through themselves as traumatic or abusive.
This is partly due to a lack of understanding of what researchers call “complex trauma”.
Looking at Dreams from a
I get that – and yet there is an answer to this mystery of dreams and it comes to down to one simple thing.
Dreams, at least in part, reflect back to us the state of our own psyche.
If you accept that possibility – that dreams are a kind of psychic x-ray if you will, then it turns the mystery upside down…

Professor Anita Hill – Salt Lake City Utah, September 27, 2018
It has been 27 years since Anita Hill came forward and shared her experiences of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. It is stating the far too obvious – to say that we have still not learned what we have needed to learn from her courage about the sexual harassment, abuse and trauma that exists within our world...

LASTLY – JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHO WE ARE…
WE ARE ALL “STUDENTS OF THE DREAM”
We believe that dreams are given to all of us as a gift to help open our heart and soul. We understand that dreams can seem complex and overwhelming and we believe that you can learn the language of dreams and the particular language of your own dreams. We have been blessed by our own work with dreams. It has made it possible for us to each live with passion, love and peace in ways that were foreign to us before this work. It has also transformed our marriage into a true partnership with an intimacy that we once only “dreamed” of. Our intention with this site is to pass on to you what we have learned so that you too can be a “student of the dream”. Bill St.Cyr and Sue Scavo
