Carla Blowey invites the bereaved to recognize their own dreams as a valuable tool for healing grief and reconciling the death of their loved ones. Carla offers the bereaved   an opportunity to see beyond the illusions of death and grief, bringing their dreams and their loved ones, and ultimately themselves into the light.

In simple terms, with cited references, Carla explains that dreams of the bereaved often mirror their own grief journey in memories, metaphors, and symbols, pointing to issues and hidden agendas blocking the path to acceptance and reconciliation.  In addition, the bereaved commonly experience "dream visits" with their deceased children and deceased loved ones and friends, offering the bereaved  assurance of their loved one's  continued existence. 

Carla’s compelling story will invite the bereaved to examine their dreams for personal symbols, synchronicities, and metaphor, as a means to reconciliation and self-empowerment. Carla believes that everything we need to know to do our own grief work is accessible within us. Using our intuition and discernment, we can interpret our dreams to reveal the guidance and wisdom needed for our personal healing.

Carla says, “Sharing our dreams in the projective format is an opportunity to see our grief   journey from a different perspective. When we are willing to see our grief and our dreams differently, we are in a mode of healing—letting go of perceptions that inhibit our emotional and spiritual growth. With each insight, we can examine the diverse issues that complicate living with loss, illuminating the imagery from the inner world to manifest creative solutions in the outer world.”

Carla shares her dreams and excerpts from her book, Dreaming Kevin: The Path To Healing to illustrate the difference between grief dreams and  “dream visits”. During her presentation, Carla offers basic techniques, tips, and exercises.

This workshop is most effective as a three-hour program to insure understanding of basic dream work, group exercise and application. Other options and programs specific to groups needs and time limitations are available. Please contact Carla for more information about scheduling and costs.

In this powerful presentation, Carla shares her inspiring testimony of the healing power of dreams in reconciling the death of her five-year-old son, Kevin. Carla reveals the ominous and prophetic nightmare pointing to Kevin’s death, less than 12 hours before he died in a truck/bicycle accident. Mistakenly, she believed she had failed to heed the nightmare as a warning to save Kevin. For what other purpose had she been given such knowledge, if not to save him? Devastated by the loss of her precious son and overwhelmed with guilt, Carla believed she failed her son and her family. Using the nightmare as a tool for understanding and reconciliation, Carla began to reexamine her perceptions of death, loss and grief to discover forgiveness, healing, personal growth and new life.

 Carla invites grieving parents to empower themselves by dreaming their way to healing. Just as a life without our beloved child(ren) is a life without a future; a life without a dream is a life without hope. Bearing witness to the heartache of the most unspeakable loss experienced by bereaved parents, Carla eloquently answers the questions, “How can we dream of the future when we are living our greatest nightmare?” “How do we bridge the gap from living with heartache to living in heartlight?”

LENGTH: 30-45 minutes
