How Paying Attention to Your Dreams Can Support Your Spiritual Practice and Journey to Peace
“To recall our dreams, we pray to God and wholeheartedly decide we want to remember our dreams. It is an act of courage and trust in what God wishes to reveal to us during sleep”. –Fr. Daniel Renaud
Do you remember your dreams? Do you sense they are important messages, but aren’t sure if you really want to revisit them?
Join Fr. Daniel Renaud for an evening exploring the power of dreams to support your spiritual practice and journey towards peace or Shalom.
In the words of Fr. Renaud, “Dreams are our first language. In evolutionary terms, our hominid ancestors dreamt before they could speak. Dream appreciation means befriending an ancient innate ability in all of us. It is not about learning a new language. It is about reclaiming a forgotten one.”
In his conversation with us, Fr. Renaud will share:
Why your dreams matter.
How many religions and native people around the world see dreams as revelatory of God’s ways to stimulate spiritual growth.
The benefits to your spiritual life and quest for peace that can come from exploring the language of your soul.
How to begin the conversation with your dreams.
Thursday evening, October 20th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, Central via Zoom
Recorded, for 30 days of viewing online as often as you’d like for registered participants.
Facilitator: Fr. Daniel Renaud
Fee: $40 per person, partial scholarships available.
