SALON OF DREAMS
with Kimberly Mascaro

3rd Wednesday of each month
7:30pm - 8.30pm

FREEdonations gratefully accepted

The topic for January will be Announcing Dreams, particularly focusing on dreams that announce a baby-to-be. Announcing dreams appear in the lives of women, men (as well as family members of the pregnant mother) in all cultures across time.

Dr. Mascaro will share some of the more striking announcing dreams published in her recent book, Extraordinary Dreams. Copies of the book will be available for sale by the author at a discount.

Dreams have held privilege and meaning in just about every human society. Today, the status of dreaming appears to be culturally dependent. Some groups do not make a distinction between waking reality and dream reality. Others regard dreaming as nothing more than the brain’s electrical impulses of the day’s residue. 

Regardless of the existing theories, people all over the world report dreams, which have impacted various aspects of their lives, and sometimes the lives of others, from health decisions to spiritual practices, and even life and death. Whether you want to learn how to increase dream frequency or recall, understand more about dream theories, discuss extraordinary dreams, or participate in dream analysis, the Dream Salon has something for everyone. Come join us!

For over a decade, dreams and dreamwork have been profoundly meaningful for psychologist, author, and artist, Kimberly Mascaro. She completed a PhD in 2014 with dreams/dreaming as the focus of her scholarship and dissertation. Dr. Mascaro also brings dreams to life through taking her dream journal quick-sketches and transforming them into paintings and other mixed media artwork. She is the creator of consciouschimera.com.
