Calling All Dreamers!

Dream Gate by Benjamin Whitehurst

Are you interested in collaborating with other dreamworkers? The mission of the Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild (ADG) is to organize the Southeastern regional network of dreamworkers and provide opportunities for high quality dreamwork training and practice, including coordinating a guild of masterful dreamworkers who collaborate regionally on larger dreamwork projects.

The first nine-month Level III: Alchemical Facilitator Training Intensive is planned for 2022-2023.
Level III Certification is designed as a Masters-level training in transformational group facilitation, and is of interest to those who facilitate interpersonal work and retreats professionally.

2. Guild Associates:

Any dream group leader in the Southeast who is leading dreamwork in line with the Ethics Statement of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) may request to become an Associate of the Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild. Academic dream researchers conducting related research are also welcome to become Associates. The IASD ethics statement may be found online at: https://www.asdreams.org/ethics-and-confidentiality/

Benefits:

The ADG maintains a list of regional dream groups and trainings and seeks to connect the public to these opportunities for learning and practice through social media posting, Meetup, email, and word-of-mouth. This is a great way to get out the word about your group or dreamwork training program. Please contact us for current fees for this service – we usually charge $50/month to announce retreats and trainings, and $20/month to announce local dream groups & Meetups. These fees help us cover the costs of offering this service. Please contact us at +1 303 847-5263 if you would like to join as a Guild Associate.
