Everyone dreams! Many believe that God’s forgotten language for speaking to humanity comes in the form of dreams. Fourteen Biblical dreams will be reviewed along with their messages to the original dreamers. Course participants will identify the meaning of dream images, examine dreams as a group, and make journal reflections. Alternative activities are provided to dream recall and recording as needed. You will discover the voice of divine image within, God longing to take shape in the world, and a healing balm needed in this chaotic world.
