Along with the husband and wife team of Sue Scavo and Bill St.Cyr, I will be hosting this third annual Dreamwork Intensive in beautiful Santa Cruz, February 2 – 4, 2017. We will meet in a spacious private home close to Twin Lakes beach in Santa Cruz, CA. Get away from the dreary weather in your part of the world and soak in the warmth of a community of loving dreamers, plus stroll on the beach and enjoy the abundant marine mammals we have in our local waters.
Sleep in your own home and join us for the retreat during the day, stay at one of the many nearby hotels, or enjoy the full retreat experience and stay with us at the comfortable retreat house.
> source After the retreat, we will host a public event called a Dream Caravan in which people gather to explore many aspects of dreaming. Free private dream sessions will be offered. I’m hoping that most of the 2017 retreat participants will stay to offer or participate in classes, free dream sessions, movement classes, art opportunities… you name it! The cost of the Caravan is included in your fees for the Dreamwork Intensive!
> Before the retreat, we are offering for the first time ever, a one day training class led by Bill and Sue. More details coming soon.
This third annual retreat will be held Thursday 5pm, February 2 through 5pm Saturday evening February 4, 2017, led by Katherine Bell along with the highly experienced husband and wife team of Susan Marie Scavo and Bill St Cyr of Students of the Dream who have led over a hundred retreats to nearly a thousand dreamers all over the world in the last ten years.
In this retreat, each person will be lovingly guided through their dreams, experiencing the openings there that invite us to untangle recurring patterns of relationship, access our deeper feelings, and have a more intimate experience of the divine. I am excited to dive in with you!
We begin Thursday evening serving a family-style dinner at 5pm; please arrive on time! Sharing the meal will help us begin to tune in to each other. Promptly at 6pm we will begin our first session, diving into the dreams together. On Friday and Saturday (sessions 2 and 3), we will meet from 9am – 5pm with long breaks for lunch. For the security of the container we respectfully urge you to attend all three sessions of the retreat!
If you have never done Experiential Dreamwork before, it is highly recommended that you have a session with Katherine, Sue, or Bill before we gather to help you to become familiar with the techniques we will be using as well as to begin to open your own inner pathways. Katherine can provide this introductory 90 minute session free of charge either in person, by phone, or by Skype.
The cost of the retreat will be $350 plus accommodations, the same as last year with a new $40 discount for couples. The cost includes dinner the first night and lunches Friday and Saturday prepared by the professional chef Allan Sirotkin from Montpelier Vermont; you are invited to help in preparation, serving, and cleanup to whatever degree feels right. I’ll post more details about the accommodations soon.
For those traveling from out of town, or for locals who want a more intimate dreamwork experience, there are rooms for rent in the house where we will be meeting. Housing will be available with priority for those staying the whole weekend, but we are adding the option this year of purchasing one, two, or three nights a la carte.
There are two associated events: the Dream Caravan on Sunday, February 5 and a one day Practitioner Training event on Wednesday, February 1 (details soon!). Payment for the Caravan is included in the cost of the Dreamwork Intensive.
In excitement, Katherine Bell
