What we're about

If you're fascinated by dreams, dreamwork, consciousness studies, and all of the possibilities that come with exploring the world of dreaming, this is for you.

Toronto Dreamers is our local chapter of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, a non-profit, international, multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the investigation of dreams and dreaming. You'll find sleep researchers, dreamworkers, lucid dreamers, therapists, and anyone who's fascinated by dreams and dreaming, coming together for inspiring conversations and events.

The Creative Joy of Projective Dreamwork with Jeanne

Location visible to members

CA$5.00

Projective Dreamwork is a fun, creative way to explore dreams in a group setting that expands our collective imagination, while respecting the dreamer's authority to find his or her own meaning. Bring a dream to share and watch how one dream can blossom into a dream for every group member. I will facilitate with a tool that uses our different perspectives as glittering puzzle pieces that can go together in any number of ways. I am the Regional Rep for IASD-Toronto and began Toronto Dreamers Meetup in 2017. Like many, I am a lifelong dreamer. I have an MA in Clinical Psychology, an MSW in Social Work, and am currently writing about dreams and my work in hospice care.

DAY LONG: A dream circle and presentation on Health Warning Dreams

Location visible to members

CA$10.00

NOTE THE CHANGE OF DAY! This is our first day-long meeting. We start at 10:AM with a facilitated dream group, then lunch (potluck). In the afternoon we will have a presentation and workshop on extraordinary dreams of "Heads-Up Dreaming" by Dr. Carlyle Smith and Donna-Marie Newfield. Can our dreams give us new information about our health? Can we dream about the health of others? The first part will focus on the science and experience of these warning dreams; the second part will be a workshop on how to recognize your own health-related warning dreams and how you might respond to them. Dr. Smith is Director of Trent University Sleep Research Laboratories and internationally respected expert on the topics of sleep, memory and dreams; Ms. Newfield is a registered craniosacral therapist and medical intuitive who often dreams for other people's healing. Bring your dreams, your curiosity, and some food to share. We will provide the main course (meat and vegan options), plus snacks for the afternoon. This is your chance to meet other IASD members and dreamers throughout the GTA.
