The People of the Dream –

Creating a New Lineage

One of the things that I have not addressed in my writings about dreams and trauma culture is the issue of lineage. 

But the lack of lineage is a core part of the alienation that so many of us feel. 

I think that I have not gotten this, because in so many ways the separation from lineage is such a given for me, and for so many of us. I know very few people who identify in any strong way with the full lineage that they come from.

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

Different Perspective

People often tell me how confusing their dreams are.

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…

Trauma Culture,

Dreams and Community

“We look for simple solutions because we don’t want to deal with the hard questions. When those simple solutions fail, too often we retreat.”

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... [READ MORE]

of Dreaming, Pt. 1

A liminal zone in natural terms is the place where two ecological landscapes meet and a new ecological zone is created, crafted, informed and shaped by both of the zones.

“Through the work of the dreams I have felt an energetic shift in how I engage the world. I have been able to see where aspects of how I engage the world have not served me and actually keep me from my wholeness.  I can discover these aspects of my personality/behavior and acknowledge them not as something bad in me but as a barrier to being whole. From here I am able to work with the feelings of the dreams to open up to ways of being that are at the core of who I am.” Mary Kay Kasper - Vermont

“One of the most important insights is acknowledging the value of my interior life vs exterior.  I have felt out of sync with most people my entire life.  In dreamwork I’ve found a tribe of like minded people.  We are seekers and finders, looking for the treasure within via feeling….” Mary Lou Bensabat - Louisiana

“Before working with my dreams I believed that God loved me, but the love felt distant, rarely penetrated, and there was some way that I believed I wasn’t worthy.  The dreams have helped me to bring that love into my body.”

Anne Seham - Israel

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
