St. Scholastica Monastery

Our dreams come from a very deep part of ourselves. They use the language of symbol and metaphor to communicate ideas from our unconscious mind. The images and events in our dreams can illuminate, empower, and guide us in our waking lives. In this retreat, we will consider dreams in Biblical narratives, Jungian perspectives, dreams in ancient and native cultures, and current research on dreams to ponder the Spirit’s movement in our own lives.
