What we're about

If you're fascinated by dreams, dreamwork, consciousness studies, and the possibilities that come with exploring the world of dreaming, this is for you. Join us as we explore dreams together from our many different perspectives: cultural, religious, age, gender, and orientation. Our dreams are who we are in all our complexity, and they connect us to our shared humanity.

Organizer Jeanne Van Bronkhorst is Toronto's Regional Representative for the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), a volunteer non-profit multidisciplinary organization dedicated to dreams and dreaming. The IASD is home to scientists, dream workers, dream enthusiasts, therapists, artists and shamans from around the world. If you are fascinated by dreams and dreaming, join us for inspiring conversations and events.

Dreams and Dia de los Muertos

Location visible to members

Each year, for a few days between October 30th and November 2, people around the world celebrate some form of remembrance of those we love who have died. Hallowed Eve, All Souls, and All Saints Day all have their roots in the 3000-year-old American Indigenous tradition of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

Bring the names of the people you are missing and we will call them into our circle at the beginning of the evening. I will bring some information about Dia de los Muertos from the Mexican Museum, and for the rest of the evening we will explore ways to remember, celebrate, and call our loved ones to us through our dreams.

I am a retired hospice social worker and bereavement counsellor, and I am wishing you all good dreams during these days of remembrance.

Dreaming with Rubies and Obsidians and Rocks, Oh My!

Location visible to members

Have you ever had a rock, crystal or gemstone appear in a dream? Have you ever placed one under your pillow/beside your bed with the hopes that it may guide/inspire your dreams?

Toronto Dreamer’s Katie M. will discuss the possible ways that rocks, crystals, and gems may influence and support our dreams. Katie will also share her observations after a two-month ‘experimentation’ of
incorporating 4 different crystals and gems into her dreamtime.

Please come with a dream to share regarding a stone, crystal, or gem. If you like, spend a few nights with one near you while you sleep and see if any dream themes appear.
