For centuries dreams have been experienced as the daily relationship with the connection with the unconscious or "the divine". Daily we are supported and given insight into our spiritual journey and psychological growth. Our time together is an opportunity to listen and receive the gift that has been offered to us.

Working with Dreams, with James Schmeiser

Mondays September 28, October 5, 19, 26, 2020, 9:30 a.m. - noon.

The theme for this retreat series is The Wisdom of the Unconscious. 
It is a common understanding that we function with a minimal conscious awareness. And yet, we are so much more. Jung, in particular, showed how we can be open to the wisdom of the universe through working with our dreams. As well, our great religious leaders have taught us that we are graced by the gift of dreams on an ongoing basis. Our task is to learn how to listen.

About Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is a process whereby one asks questions of meaning and faith in a confidential setting.  

This exploration may include questions such as,

  • "What is the meaning of my life?"

  • "What is the meaning of  suffering?"  

  • "How can I cultivate goodness and love?" ,

  • "What is my relationship to Amida or Divine Mystery?"

  • "How can I be of service to others?

  • How are my dreams informing my life?


Spiritual direction can be used to discern one’s life course by considering questions of purpose and meaning.  


Spiritual direction is not about problem-solving; rather, it is a soul searching and discovering how one is supported in living an other-centered life.



Sessions are 55 minutes and are available in person or on-line using the Zoom platform.
