Dreaming into the Light
with Judith Tripp and small group leaders
November 6-7, 2020
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.
SLIDING SCALE PRICING: $99 - $149 - $199
Led by Judith Tripp, Veriditas Faculty and Women's Dream Quest Leader
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.
