About this event:
~ dreamspells ~
dreamspells is a monthly, new-moon event that draws upon a variety of creative and meditative techniques to centre the wisdom of our intuitive inner realms. the aim is to refresh, replenish, and revitalize our creative energy. you will have space to write, to doodle, and otherwise externalize throughout the session. this is a two-hour event that includes a 15 minute break.

have you ever had a dream? have you ever had a daydream? have you ever thought about a dream? do you enjoy listening to others describing their dreams? are you interested in building a relationship with your dream-realm? do you ever feel you get stuck in a “mental thinking zone” and want to explore more embodied, image-oriented comprehension? do you have trouble sleeping and want a chance to rest, imagine, give your eyes a break from stimulation? do you ever wish connection (esp online) didn’t have to be so full-frontal, so requiring of direct attention, so quick-paced and immediate?
join us for deep rest and imaginative play.

Hi, I’m Bára Hladik
Bára’s magical guidance has helped me make light of my unending body pain. Their meditations and moving soundscapes taught me to love the most armoured parts of myself and let go of everything. To feel the flame as it burns, to cherish the darkness, to honor every wrong turn as the chosen path of our warriorship—these teachings will forever remain with me thanks to her warm and beautiful heart.
Bara’s meditation sessions were the gentle landing space I needed at the end of a particularly stressful period in a challenging year. I felt so safe with their voice, visualization techniques, and sound choices to guide us. I was able to ground in my body, breath, and emotions in ways I wouldn’t have been able to access without their care. I hope many more people get the opportunity to be in Bara’s virtual presence. It’s an immersive and healing experience.
