Bringing the Unconscious to Light with Carrington Brown

Spiritual direction, dreamwork, meditation, fine art… It’s all about bringing the unconscious to light! Our guest today is Innerwork Center’s Carrington Brown.  Our guest speaks about how becoming aware of waking life habitual reactions can be a way to transform them into responses. She recommends identifying the dream moment of either the most emotion or of most surprise to find the place to begin exploring it.

Carrington shares a number of references including Haden Institute and also Robert Hoss’s Six Magic Questions which can be found at Also check out the offerings at the
