Second Annual Festival of Dreams
Sunday, March 11, 2018, 11am-5pm
at Louden Nelson Community Center
Featuring Pioneering Dream Expert Jeremy Taylor
Katherine Bell, founder of the Festival of Dreams Santa Cruz, says: “Just as being conscious of our breathing can enhance its healing effects (witness yoga and meditation), so too, bringing our dreams into consciousness can enhance our sense of wellbeing. Working with dreams can unravel habitual reactions, resolve relationship issues, and bring a sense of purpose into our lives.”
The Second Annual “Festival of Dreams” (formerly “Dream Caravan”) will be Sunday, March 11, 2018 from 11:00am – 5:00pm at Louden Nelson Community Center, 301 Cedar Street in Santa Cruz. This year’s Festival will feature a Dream Expert Panel Discussion, six Interactive Workshops, Free Private Dream Consultations, and a Keynote Address by renowned author and dream expert Jeremy Taylor.
“The Festival of Dreams is designed to uplift and enliven dreaming of all kinds, especially dreamwork that is focused on the transformative, healing, and inspiring aspects of dreams. The dreams we have at night, the dreams we have for ourselves and our communities, and the expressions of our imaginations are all aspects of dreaming that the Festival aims to encourage, explore, and support in any way possible.” Kezia Kamenetz, Founder of the Dream Caravan concept
Highlights of this year’s Festival are:
