Post Traumatic Spiritual Growth with Linda Schiller

Can dreamwork lead to post traumatic spiritual growth? In this replay of a popular show from October 2022, our guest author and therapist Linda Schiller speaks about waking dream moments and synchronicity. She defines spirituality as an ability to feel held and speaks about how dreams, even painful dreams, can help us grow that ability. We also speak about the three faces of shadow: personal, familial and global and about the parallels between EMDR and REM. We explored my dream about asking for help.
