Vision of the Heart, Words of the Soul: A Book of Dreams Experience


Imagine the soft breath of a horse warming your skin as she turns toward you. Imagine the sun lighting up your page as words stream from your pen in rhythm with the beat of your heart, as you dip your brush into bright watercolors and find your flow. Imagine red and gold thread being passed to you and wrapped around your wrist as a reminder of your connection to nature, to creation, to your mission here in life.


Do you have the courage to stand in circle and be seen and see yourself as the precious being you are? Are you ready to accept and love yourself as a unique expression of the universal life force energy that animates everyone and everything? Are you ready to let your imagination be stimulated and allow new possibilities to become real?  Yes? Yes! The Book of Dreams is an experience that we’ve created just for you!


We’ve been cultivating this work for a long time and offer it to you, the dreamer, the seeker, the connector, the weaver, as the creative path to valuing your authentic self! We offer you the inspiration you’ve been looking for to take the next step in understanding your soul’s purpose. We’ll help you access the deepest levels of your intuition and align yourself with the euphoric flow of creative energy that allows you to live life in connection with Life – yes Life with a capital L! Reignite your passion and remember who you are!


We will be creating an actual book – a creative journal of symbols and colors, mark-making and writing, recording our connection with nature, with the trees and flowers, the water and the land, as we discover the visual language for reading our own intuition. The Book of Dreams is a name for our own life, created and lived as a conscious masterpiece of art. Nature and equine experiences, intentional creativity exercises and ancient dreaming practices all support our exploration.


We will be meeting at Dreaming Horse Ranch in West End, North Carolina, near the towns of Pinehurst and Southern Pines. All of your creative art materials are provided – and truly no previous art experience is necessary! You will be guided step by step, helped along by the Book of Dreams process we have spent years developing. The creation of your Book of Dreams will be your own unique project. You will be provided with a mixed-media visual journal that measures 9x12 inches, so it should be easy to travel with on your way home.
