Nature-Based Soul Dreaming - Wendy Robertson Fyfe
2 PART ONLINE ACCREDITED WORKSHOP 5 HOURS CPD
3rd Dec / 10th Dec, 2019 - 7-9.30PM
Who will benefit from this workshop
- Practitioners who are interested in, who are curious and want to put a toe in, or who already have experience of exploring nature/eco-based work with questions about what it means to be human at this historic moment of emergency/shift in human consciousness; of how our understanding of such questions root our practice.
- Practitioners who want to go, or who already go, beyond ‘individualistic’ ways of working with people to include a longer, deeper, wider understanding of ourselves and our work. In these workshops, Dreams as a way of being worked by Soul that go beyond egoic interpretation and analysis from the more usual human-centred way.
- Practitioners who are willing to enter the Mystery and be surprised by both themselves and what might emerge from the client.
- Practitioners who wonder about the purpose of Dreams and different ways of being in conversation with them both for themselves and the people they work with.
- Practitioners who are exploring the Nature-Based Wheel and the stages of Human Development, see the On-Line Events Library and Bill Plotkin’s Nature and the Human Soul; Cultivating Wholeness in a Fragmented World and ‘Wild Mind; Field Guide to the Human Psyche’
- Practitioners who are interested in the visionary work of Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute
- Practitioners who are willing to risk working experientially and sharing them, whilst there is no pressure to share, sharing deepens development and witness.
“In that first hardly noticed moment in which you wake,
coming back to this life from the other
more secret, moveable and frighteningly honest world
where everything began,
there is a small opening into the new day
which closes the moment you begin your plans.
What you can plan is too small for you to live.
What you can live wholeheartedly will make plans enough
for the vitality hidden in your sleep. (…)”
What to Remember When Waking, David Whyte
Week 1 –Courting the Dreamworld….. slooowlyyyy
Introduction/opening/ preparing Dream Altar/remembering dreams/ listening to dreams and letting them work us /invitations for between workshops including taking dreams out on the land, offerings, and working with clients.
Week 2 – Dream’s Expressing
Check in about process, dyads and then full group/writing or art/character movement/Council. Relate to work with clients. Possible next steps.
- Experiencing a deeper understanding of Dreams as original life and soul guiding a person’s life direction born to live; the deeper river flowing underneath.
- Deeper understanding of nature/eco-based or nature connection work; of humans within an Earth Community context of Dreaming. For example, wandering on the land with dreams/dream characters.
- Self-healing and wholing invitations.
- Creating resources and different ways of working with ourselves, each other, and in our Practice with relation to Dreams.
- In a dream denying culture, the participants will also experience further the importance paying attention to Dreams in our work; of opening to allowing ourselves to be dreamed, even be the dream.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I never remember my dreams, though l would like to. Will this course still be relevant for me?
Yes, it will also likely deepen your relationship with your own dreaming world and how to court Dream-maker. It will therefore also provide ways of working more with your clients.
I have a childhood dream that l remember, would this course enable insights into that?
Yes, as long as the dream is fresh, that you are willing to speak it in the present tense, and for the purposes of the time we have, short.
What about nightmares?
YES, nightmares can be really juicy!!! A great way of working with clients nightmares, especially if their life feels like a nightmare!
Will l need to go out to wilderness places to participate in the workshop?
Yes, though access to a park or patch of land or ie tree even in the city will work. The workshop is about the relation between our inner wildness in the world of dreams and where the inner and outer wildness bridge. It will be essential to offer time outside both before and between workshops.
Will l need to attend Wendy's Onlinevents Interview before the workshop?
Yes, doing so is highly recommended and will be assumed. We will send you a link to view the recording.
I’ve never participated in a nature-based/eco workshop, would these workshops be a good entry point?
Yes, no previous experience is expected on these workshops, though experience is also welcome.
Will attending dreams help me fix my life/make my life better?
Unlikely, in fact it might unravel life further to re-align with a deeper pattern and way of being that you might not be aware of at this time, both you and your client.
The world is in emergency, what’s the point of attending to our dreams?
Dreams come from a deeper under-stream of life. It could be that we are in emergency because we are not in conversation with the dreamworld. Thomas Berry even proposed that we are the Dream of Earth; what if Earth is dreaming through us and guiding us at this critical time.
I'm not very technical. How will I manage?
Before the workshop, you will have a one-to-one session with a colleague from 'Onlinevents' who will take you through the technical part. It's not complicated, and if you have basic computer skills you should manage fine. You will need a webcam with sound to fully participate, but again, this will be covered in the 'Tech' session. You can access the workshop from a variety of devices. Read More about our online workshops
WE ASKED THE PRESENTER....
Wendy Robertson Fyfe
WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE DIFFERENT?
This course goes beyond dream analysis or interpretation. It takes us deeper both inside the practitioner room and outside in the world; where dreams themselves are living and animate.
WHY DO YOU OFFER THIS COURSE?
I am passionate about dreams and the wisdom of ego-transformational opportunities that go beyond our own imagination. We do not know where they will take us. Dreams have had such an enormous influence in my life and the directions l’ve taken..into trouble in the best kind of ways;) I’m also passionate abut the way dreams are both personal and go beyond the personal into a wider place of ‘being human’ within a Earth Community. They can enable self healing, guide us on the journey to soul and beyond. I experience dreams as a way of being fully present to possibilities for each of us, and our clients, at this time of global emergency or any time. Maybe it would also be great for Governments to start the day speaking their night dreams “from that first hardly noticed moment….”;)

“The answer is never the answer,
What is really interesting is The Mystery”
Wendy Robertson Fyfe
I'm a Renaissance woman; a nature-based soul-centric guide and mentor, poet, writer, psychosynthesis psychotherapist, and photographer. I previously worked as a Cultural Historian, researching the development and professionalism of/allies between medicine and law from the 19th Century in England with regard to redefining women's bodies and social roles and then Associate Lecturer at The Open University in Scotland. In 1995, The Wild, in the form of an Autumn Spruce along the Findhorn River, Scotland, invited me to sing and I joined in with a deeper song. In 2001, I first offered 'The Walk' in East Lothian, filmed by BBC Scotland. My listening eye has since led me to all sorts of awe-inspiring and wondrous places around the globe.
I am passionate about, and committed to, this historic moment of 'The Great Turning' and through my journeying into and over lands experience deeply Earth's urgency for us to dive down to Holy roots; to our inheritance in Imagination and Intelligence of Earth's Dreaming claiming our original mythopoetic voices.... returning with our unique and wild notes in service of Earth Community.
I live in Dunbar, Scotland, the birthplace of John Muir. I'm deeply involved with bringing the work of the Animas Valley Institute to Europe and am currently a Senior Apprentice with Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute.
