WOMEN'S DREAM QUESTs


Dreaming into the Light

with Judith Tripp and small group leaders

November 6-7, 2020

Upcoming women's dream quests

  • No upcoming events

Please note:  Due to the health regulations during the pandemic, we are unable to gather at Grace Cathedral.  We will be using the zoom platform to gather virtually.

November 6:  6:00-9:30 pm and November 7:  8:00- 11:00 am (pacific)

In this year of uncertainty, tragedy and turmoil, it is time to gather in the circle once more.  With the blessing of zoom technology, we will be able to see and hear each other, participate in small groups, witness beautiful imagery and  hear the beloved music that graces each year of Dream Quest. 

We will tune into our collective memory of standing on the labyrinth in Grace Cathedral, processing along her aisles, candles in hand, choosing our small groups and creating the enduring circle of women.

We ask that you prepare yourself by creating an altar with a candle, sacred objects and something that represents the Light.  Please have a finger labyrinth at the ready (purchase or download one on the Veriditas website.) You can join us on your computer or iPad (phone not recommended).

On Friday, we will start in the large group with our usual songs, participate in guided meditations, and call our circles.  After an imaginal candlelight procession, we will be randomly assigned to our small groups led by able women of the Dream Quest circle.  We will then come back to the large group for a finger labyrinth walk, setting our dreaming intentions and receiving a lullaby.

On Saturday morning, we will gather for a time of meditation, labyrinth walking, a second session with your small group followed by closing rituals. 

There has never been a time in my memory when we need more Light-- more illumination of our deepest knowing, more ease and grace in all our relationships, more glowing hope and healing in our selves, our families, our nation, our planet. 

Please plan to join us, dreaming into the Light.

Historically, the Women's Dream Quest has been a women's overnight experience in San Francisco's Grace Cathedral with the following format:

The format of the Dream Quest is quite simple. We gather as a group -- usually about 70 women. We learn several beautiful chants that we will use throughout the experience. We spend time greeting each other and preparing to enter the sacred space of the Quest. We then move to the Labyrinth and do a ceremony with song, movement and guided meditation that sets the tone and creates a safe and expansive environment for each woman to have her "dream" as well as a warm and nurturing environment for us all to experience a community of heart.


We then move into small groups facilitated by able women in the community. We choose these groups by randomly drawing a card representing a quality that creates a theme in each group. The small groups are an essential part of the experience. Here women are invited to share their stories and to be witnessed as they quest for their dreams. We encourage women to consider all their experiences in the event as part of their dream.

After an hour of small group interaction, it is time for walking the Labyrinth, receiving healing, meditating, praying, journaling, singing, creating art or dolls, or even going to sleep. We want women to feel free to follow their hearts and experiences. This period lasts until the lights dim, but some women choose to walk the Labyrinth during the night or continue their vigil or meditation.

In the morning, the women are awakened with a song, and spend the first morning hour in meditation, body prayer, (movement, Yoga stretches etc.), or journaling. They then meet in the small groups again. A final large group ceremony is held on the Labyrinth and the process of taking what we've learned back into the world is begun. We meet in the same small groups over breakfast and prepare a skit to communicate the message each group wants to share. After the performance, each woman receives a gift and we dance and sing a final closing.

Join us at the moment of the year when the veils are thin and the ancestors near as we contemplate the Great Mystery at the heart of all the spiritual traditions.  We will form the sacred circle, dance through the veils,  walk the labyrinth, and deepen our dreaming of the Mystery. Come, wake up with us in Grace!

Serves as a Qualifying Workshop for Facilitator Training.
