Reverence in the Cave-Womb of the Dreaming Earth

Reverence in the Cave-Womb of the Dreaming Earth:

Wild Yoga & Deep Imagination

for Personal and Planetary Transformation

with Rebecca Wildbear and Susanna Raeven 

October 23 – 25, 2020


As the days grow darker and the nights longer, hibernation into dreams, images, and revelation call us. Entering the realms of our dream maker allows us to know ourselves in deeper ways, to dance with our muse, to face our shadow. Being vulnerable calls for courage. In dreamtime we engage with the facets of ourselves that are hidden deep below. We call them forth from the darkness of the dream cave into the light of consciousness.

Soul speaks through images, and every dream is an embodied invitation to our unfolding soul story. The inner wilds of dreams, the outer wilderness of the world, and our bodies are three of our most potent guides.

The Earth is dreaming through us; the inner and outer wildernesses are interwoven. Dream may arise from the “World Dream,” offering us a glimpse of the desires of the world so we may “act in the world, on behalf of the world". 

Our dreams can guide us to take the actions that matter most for ourselves and the world. When listening to our dreams is married to acting on behalf of life on Earth, we bring together of our visionary and revolutionary natures.

Let us gestate in the womb of the Earth's mystery and profound power as we pay reverence to the teachings of our dreams.


In this weekend dream and yoga immersion, we will courageously and deeply listen while wandering in the soul’s mysterious domain, submitting ourselves to its atmospheres, landscapes, and characters. We will be in ceremony and conversation with the animate natural world and call on the work with dream plants.

Our mornings will be spend in a wild yoga practice as a prayer, connecting our inner landscape with the elements and spirits of the surrounding land of Raven Crest.

A shift in consciousness and radical transformation are possible for ourselves and our world.
