We talk with certified Spiritual Director Pam Muller about working with our dreams starting with playfulness and trust. She shares a playful dream of her own about defusing a bomb by solving a riddle about pudding.
We then go into the topic of HSPs or Highly Sensitive Persons, a condition discussed by Dr. Elaine Aron and thought to affect up to 20% of the population. You can find out more about what that means at HSPerson.com. HSPs are what Pam calls “deep meaning makers” which makes them perfect for inner work such as dream exploration.
We then talk about the HadenInstitute.com and its programs in the Christian mystical tradition, Jungian psychology and dreamwork. They are having an upcoming virtual conference during the week after Memorial Day. Pam describes her role as Spiritual Director as being a combination of life coach and spiritual anchor and shares that she sees her role as that of being invited to sit in awe and wonder with her clients.
We then take a call from Ellen who share a prophetic dream and asks how this might be possible. We also get a check-in from a final caller who asks about the aboriginal concept of Dreamtime. We all agreed that it would be wonderful to have a guest on the Journal who knows more about this topic. If you know someone who knows about this or it you ever have a suggestion for a guest, please do contact me at email@example.com.
We are doing a pledge drive during this show (I did edit out most of the pitching), and I would heartily appreciate your donation at KSQD.org. Any amount helps and when you donate, you get a chance to tell the station that you are a Dream Journal supporter!
