About the Event
Topic: What Happened to my Inner Child? Recovering the images that speak of wonder, playfulness, and the truth of who we are and are called to be.
Every dream, rising out of the unconscious soul, is a voice of God coming to us from the deep centre where we are ever living in the Sacred Presence of our Creator. Like Jacob in Genesis 21, we can say each time we awake from a dream, “Truly God is in this place. This is nothing less than a house of God, this is the gate of heaven.” Such is our approach to the dream. It is a tool among many others to help us hear what God might be saying in any given situation. Come to be amazed at the beauty and wisdom of your own soul and receive tools to help you amplify your dreams.
In the gospel we are reminded that we must become like little children to enter the kingdom of God. The child in each of us is full of potential. In dreams the child often appears when we are forgetful of our soul, too busy or involved in the outer world. We will explore ways in which we can engage again with our soul-child.
