Letting Go with Sahlah Dubel

Surrender. Katherine speaks this week to Sahlah Dubel of Divine by Design about what her dreams are teaching her about letting go. Sahlah speaks about how taking care of her six week old baby Cedar has put her in a place where she is needing to let her dreams work in the background. When a dream breaks through, she pays extra attention! Sahlah shares a dream in which she is on the back of a sea creature and can only submerge after she finds herself telling herself to let go. This leads to a moving conversation about moving forward even while afraid which she applies to decisions about her job as well as to her spiritual life.

BIO: Sahlah Dubel is co-founder of Divine by Design, a corporation dedicated to supporting community resilience and holistic wellness. As a generational dreamer, dream integration was essential to her family’s paradigm for emotional wellness. A he’s facilitates dreaming workshops providing techniques to navigate dreams and embrace lucid living.
