The Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild is offering a special weekly program of dream sharing events… come join us & bring a dream. This week’s discussion is on an unusual topic: Half Asleep Visions & Dream Awakenings.

Dreams of Half Asleep Visions, False Awakenings (like the movie Inception), and other hypnagogic imagery can be both bizarre and fascinating! If you’d like to learn more about these unusual experiences, come join us for a lively discussion!

This dream topic on Half Asleep Visions & Dream Awakenings will include:

a) Dreamwork Essentials: How to explore the meaning of dreams in a dream group or community forum.

b) Breakouts: An opportunity to share one of your dreams in a group of 3 to 4 people (we are using Zoom Video Sharing, which has the capacity to create up to 50 live breakout rooms!).

c) Dream Sharing: Several people will be invited to share one of their dream experiences with the whole group.

d) Group Chat: Share your questions & related experiences.

Dreamwork can be very simple–you share your (nighttime) dreams, and others simply listen and reflect. It is a simple yet powerful way to express what you’re experiencing & feel heard, feel connected, and learn about ourselves. All are welcome, even those with no dreamwork experience.

We believe reciprocity creates the best community experience. If you are currently unemployed, please join without payment and help us spread the word to several of your friends (invites via text message work best). If you are currently employed or on Social Security, please contribute $20 for this event via Paypal (, knowing your contribution makes a difference.

Your host for this event is dream alchemist Benjamin Whitehurst, M.A., founder of the Durham-based Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild (DreamCircling.Com). Benjamin holds a Masters of Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University along with certification in Integral Circling from the Integral Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Notes & Disclaimers: This event does not involve psychotherapy or any other form of healing intent. If you are in a particularly sensitive state, please be aware that dreamwork can be intense for some people–check with your doctor or therapist before participating. The intent of this event is to simply share dreams with each other, like telling one’s story, and to receive some initial feedback from the community. Imagine 1,000 years ago when communities would share dreams together when a crisis was afoot–they would sit in a circle and share the dreams they had been having. It was both a means of staying connected, and a means of processing & gaining insights about what was happening. May this event be in service of the well-being of our community. This event is a professional offering organized through the Alchemical Dreamers’ Guild / Navigate Change, LLC.
