    Our guest today, Stephanie Trager, describes herself as a repurposed lawyer and was a tree activist until a serious head injury put her on the path of healing. We talk about the idea that psyche can’t distinguish between real and not real including psychedelic visions, memories, dreams, and the her and now. She talks about reframing the past and healing our lineage, which allows us to change our present and thus the future. She then shares her story of the head trauma that upended her life and led her to the South American rain forests where she spent time with Kogi indigenous shamans.
    After the break, we take a call from Ray from Santa Cruz who asks how we know when we are on the right path in life. He shares his own story of head trauma and how that changed his life. Ray also describes his passion project aimed at unifying America which you can find out about at MACA.us.com. Stephanie ends with a discussion about the difference between reconciling and spiritual dreams and talks about vivid dreaming and her mentor Margot Wilson.
    BIO: Stephanie Trager bridges ancient intelligence and modern wisdom to activate human potential. A fierce seeker of truth, she guides thought leaders to remember who they really are so they can do the deep sacred work they’re really here to do.

    Humanity at an Inflection Point with Christine Barrington

    Humanity at an Inflection Point with Christine Barrington

    Will we make it to a safer age? Humanity balances between two paths: self-destruction or self-revelation. Our guest, Christine Barrington describes this critical inflection point and argues that dreams awaken us to the realm of purpose and meaning arguing that every one of us has much to contribute to the path of humanity.
    Christine begins with James Braid then outlines the complicated history of science and consciousness including how they got separated in the first place, culminating with the philosophy of positivism which is the belief nothing exists that cannot be verified. She notes in contrast that most of the giants of quantum theory were also mystics including Planck (mentioning his book Where Science is Going) and also Einstein, Schrödinger, Heisenberg, Bohr, and Pauli. On the thread of consciousness,  she quotes Carl Jung and his work on the tension of the opposites and synchronicity, also Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ken Wilbur, and Joe Dispenza and the birth of neurophysiology and mindfulness.
    Christine brings it together talking about Thomas Campbell and his book My Big TOE and his “theory of everything,” which argues that consciousness is the basis for everything and that we are here on this planet to learn and evolve that consciousness, one person at a time. She plays a quote of his about how dreaming gives us information about our selves in that how we react in dreams is how we are. As we learn to be more living and present, then our dreams evolve too.
    Christine ends by sharing information about a conference put on by Campbell’s organization, the Center for the Unification of Science and Consciousness CUSAC.org, and the the symposium they will be hosting in September.
    BIO: Christine Barrington has worked as a psychotherapist and transformational coach and is a seeker who has invested years searching for answers underlying the challenges of human existence. She asks will we make it to a safer age?
    Here are links to Christine’s previous Dream Journal shows: https://ksqd.org/dreaming-a-new-future-through-conscious-evolution-with-christine-barrington/ and https://ksqd.org/transformational-dreamwork-with-christine-barrington/

    From Shame to Self-Love with Bill St. Cyr

    From Shame to Self-Love with Bill St. Cyr

    We speak with Bill St. Cyr starting with how common shame is and how the mean voices that we carry around make it hard for us to let in the love that’s all around us. Test taking in a dream is often about shame. Bill shares a dream in which he felt a deep sense acceptance when a dear friend tenderly put their forehead up against his. We talk about something called the entropic theory of the brain which draws parallels between the dreaming brain state and the brain on psychedelics and how they both can throw our brains into enough disarray that we come out of them in a new state.
    We take a call from Christine Barrington who shares a dream where she felt supported, and she speaks about how we all learn best through connection. She also defines a heretic as one who choses. Bill closes by encouraging us to bring tenderness to our life’s journey every step of the way.
    To learn more and to contact Bill and to learn about his coaching and classes, see his website at StudentsoftheDream.com
    Books we talked about include Pema Chodron’s Start Where You Are and Lisa Barrett’s How Emotions are Made.
    BIO: Bill St. Cyr is a devoted student of the dream and of the process of coming into deep consciousness in the face of the trauma and alienation that is so endemic in our culture. Bill has over 10 years experience working with dreamers and teaching practitioners the practice of Embodied Dreamwork. He has presented and facilitated over 75 workshops, retreats and conferences throughout the US, Canada and Europe.

    How dreaming corrects weaving errors in our internal world models. Also, nightmares, the collective unconscious, and does artificial intelligence have one too? A discussion about what dreams have to say about the nature of reality. Harry de Bont speaks with Katherine about the many facets of what he calls cybernetic dreaming.
    BIO: With a background in both Electrical Engineering and Psychology, Harry de Bont’s approach to dreams lies at the nexus of technology and psychology, what he calls the cybernetic perspective on dreams.
