• Touch on techniques and sample herbs that improve dream recall and stimulate lucid dreaming
• Create dream sachets to support our practice
• Share our dreams and unpack them with group exercises
• Journey to elements of our dreams that draw us in or offer healing messages

Please bring a journal, a small crystal or stone, and a dream to share!
