Retreat Organizer

Billie Ortiz, certified dreamworker, has two decades of experience creating and facilitating dream groups, workshops, and retreats. Her unique appreciation of metaphor and symbol expands her work to the realm of myth and fairy tale, which helps guide dreamers to a deeper understanding of the profound messages of their dreams.

In this workshop, you will learn how to decipher a dream and discover the compassionate, life-affirming process of working with the “if this were my dream” projective style. Together we will explore the symbols and metaphors of volunteered dreams and offer possible meanings, always remembering that only the dreamer can say with any certainty what meanings his or her dream may have. Even if you don’t remember your dreams, you will gain a deeper insight into how all dreams speak a universal language of metaphor and symbol, guiding us all toward health and wholeness.

Throughout the weekend, we gather together in a large dream circle. We close each dream with gentle movement/yoga stretches to express the symbolism of the dream in the physical. We follow the guidelines of “in my imagined version of this dream,” and, with this practice, “everybody’s dream becomes everybody’s dream.” It’s truly an empowering and compassionate process of opening ourselves to the synchronicity of the Collective Unconscious!

Even if you don’t remember your dreams, you will find this workshop fascinating as you experience how “all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness and speak a universal language of metaphor and symbol”  (Jeremy Taylor) 

Your registration includes one free 15-minute healing session (specific healers TBA) and optional more in-depth paid healing sessions will be available as well.
