Dreaming Awake: The Body As Ceremony

Dreaming Awake on The Solstice: The Body as Ceremony

Studio 34

4522 Baltimore Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19143

A movement meditation and a facilitated, interactive discussion on Afam Nation (African American sovereignty) spiritual technologies for dreaming with landscapes - geographies, emotional, portals. We will combine movement, reiki, body and voice to create tools for dream recall and consensual ancestor communication. During the second day of class, we will reflect on the previous night’s dreamwork and learn methods of divination and dream interpretation. All of this work is in service of our collective intuition, knowing and freedom.

EQUINOX Dreaming Awake

EQUINOX Dreaming Awake

Resource for mental health practitioners, spiritual practitioners, holistic practitioners and individuals seeking ancestral wisdom.

Dreaming Awake is a practice of dreamworking as divination, rest, meditation, routine, manifestation, activism, rooted in African spiritual technology. We do it because we are experiencing battle fatigue - needing both rest and strategy to continue the work of our ancestors or to begin something new. In this equinox class we work from a moment of balance - equal parts night and day - covering the following topics over 12 weeks:

  • Planting seeds for dreamworking and plant medicine for dreams.

  • Spiritual hygiene and the impacts on emotional and mental health. 

  • Historical and modern ancestor veneration globally.

  • Dream recall and individual interpretation.

  • Harvesting what you have bloomed through your dreamworking.

The course will include weekly medicinal videos, weekly assignments, an individual dreamworking consultation, 2 group Q&As, one final assignment, a completion certificate, and a further reading syllabus.  Dreamworkers will be learning to dream with their landscapes - emotional, physical, geographic, astrological. This class is open to everyone who identifies as global peacekeeper - working toward abolition of oppressive systems and liberation for all African peoples.
