HOW DO I PARTICIPATE ?
each dream-in will be a little different than the last, and the details of each dream-in are shared via snail mail. in order to participate, simply fill out the form and check your mailbox. getting mail is nice. you can also enter the address of someone you think may enjoy participating in this project. i will not do anything weird with your or anyone else's personal information.
you are not required to participate if you request information (but i hope you do).
BUT WHAT IF I DON'T DREAM ?
if you find it difficult to remember your dreams, consider keeping a dream journal. the more the “recall muscle” is exercised, the easier it becomes to remember your dreams.
if you seem to remember a flash of your dream upon waking but lose the bigger picture, just relax, stay there. literally do not move. wait for what may come next. Carl Jung would remind us to "stick with the image", to stay in the imaginal realm as long as we can.
get into the habit of asking yourself the question, “what was i just thinking about?” when you wake up. you will be surprised at how quickly your mind can answer you.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE DREAM-IN ?
you will receive mailed instructions on what happens after the dream-in. if you are curious, but do not feel called to participate in the dream-in, you may check in on the dream-in forum.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS ?
the goal of this project is to get people to strengthen their relationship with dreams. dreams can be a useful tool: in healing, in having fun, in learning about the self. dreams are a cruicial element of the universal human experience, and they have been snuffed out of our culture because magic is a threat to the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy. as someone who has had precognitive, wild, magical, beautiful dreams, one of my goals is to help other people gain access to this magic. you do not have to drink the kool-aid to participate, but i ask participants to consider the possibilities of magic and change within the context of dreaming. there is no "success" or "failure" because dreaming-in inherently succeeds in its goal of opening a dialogue about dreams.
