    Speaking Dreams with Erika and Linda of Dreampire

    Speaking Dreams with Erika and Linda of Dreampire

    What is it about sharing a dream that feels so satisfying? We talk today to Linda Koncz from Portugal and Erika Kapronczai from Hungary to talk about their creation: DREAMPIRE an archive containing thousands of video clips of people telling their most significant dreams. Word analysis (shown below) shows that some of the most common words shared are death, family, nightmare, chasing and animal.

    We speak about several dream-like movies including Andalusian Dog by Salvador Dali and Mulholland Drive by David Lynch. We also talk about precognitive dreams and the idea of an app to track people's dreams that might foretell significant events.

    You can contribute your own dream to Dreampire by recording yourself telling a dream and submitting the video clip to their webpage.

    BIO: Linda Koncz has recorded hundreds of interviews with people describing what they have dreamt at night and co-created Dreampire.com, the first audiovisual dream archive. Linda is working on her PhD research about the oneiric connection between films and dreams in the Catholic University of Lisbon in Cultural Studies.

    BIO: Erika Kapronczai is a Hungarian film director, creative producer, and lecturer of storytelling at Budapest Metropolitan University. Erika is the co-founder of the Dreampire project with which she participated in Galeri Nasional Indonesia Artist Residency in 2013. She records dream interviews, organizes dream exhibitions, and is constantly looking for ways to apply the dream collection. Erika also curates exhibitions and direct performances based on the dreams of the collection.

    Conscious Evolution Rebroadcast with Christine Barrington

    Conscious Evolution Rebroadcast with Christine Barrington

    The upheaval in the world today is evidence that the cultural myth that we in the western world are living under is undergoing a radical evolution. Our old myths are dying. What will be our new myth and will humanity survive the chaotic transformation? Christine shares the stories of two scientists who used astral travel to explore the nature of reality in a systematic way and developed an institute called the Monroe Institute to research the phenomenon of out of body experiences.

    The results of this research suggest that we each contribute to the evolution of consciousness through our own personal growth. Dreams and meditation enhance this process by reflecting back to us our own particular fears.

    We take a call from Lucille from Cambria who shares with us her experience of the nine dimensions meditation which leads us to a discussion of somatics or body awareness in personal evolution.  We end with Christine talking about the power of rebirthing breathwork as a healing modality.

    Christine mentions the books: Memories, Dreams and Reflections by Carl Jung, Quantum Questions by Ken Wilbur, The Answer to Job by Carl Jung and The Miracle of the Breath by Andy Caponigro. Lucille references the book Alchemy of Nine Dimensions by Barbara Hand Clow.

    BIO: Christine Barrington is a Transformational Coach and supports individuals and groups to artfully engage their inner world through exploring dreams, art, and inner visioning in order to effect potent positive change in their lives. She is highly trained in depth psychology and trauma resolution techniques and uses somatic experiencing as a basis for deep listening into the non-rational sources of wisdom that reside in the embodied subconscious. Join us and hear how she combines these multiple modalities in the service of unlocking our dreams.

    Contact Christine at her web page BodyBroadcasts.com

    We play clips from the following two guest-selected songs: (1) The First Element: I Just Dropped in to See What Condition my Condition Was In and (2) Lovely lovely day by Yaya's Kitchen

    Ambient music created by Rick Kleffel new every week. Many thanks to Rick Kleffel for engineering the show and to Tony Russomanno for answering the phones.

    Dreaming of Animals with Keith Salmon: Replay

    Dreaming of Animals with Keith Salmon: Replay

    Keith Salmon is a world-renowned nature videographer. He shares with Katherine how he was inspired by a series of distressing dreams to leave his academic job to become more connected to nature. He eventually found his calling as a videographer. We talk about the ability of animals to be present in their environment while humans have been sheltered from the consequences of their actions. Keith brings up the idea of Indra’s net of gems as a way of thinking about this web of natural relationships and says that nature invites us to become a gem in a net of gems.

    We then talk about how to work with the animals that show up in our dreams. Keith recommends exploring our own associations and then also to dig into the science around these animals to find out who they really are. There are times when we can follow our dream animals into waking life by visiting their habitats. Keith then shared some of his own stories about following his dream animals into waking life, and we talk about the quality of enchantment that happens as the veil between dreamtime and awake time thins.

    We take a call from Sylvia from northern Ontario. She reminds us that we dream not only about wild animals, but also about domesticated animals such as our pets and also talks about how when she dreams for global healing, which is a part of her regular practice, that the dreams that come are often about nature and stillness and peace.

    Keith quotes several memorable passages, one from writings by Eagle Chief Letakos-Lesa of the Pawnee People, and one from David Wagoner which encourages us that when we feel lost, we should stand still and let the forest find us. And finally he quotes the following:

    “Once for each thing. Just once; no more. And we too,
    just once. And never again. But to have been
    this once, completely, even if only once:
    to have been at one with the earth, seems beyond undoing.”
    — Rainer Maria Rilke (Duino Elegies)

    We played clips from nature sound recordist Lang Elliot: the Cades Cove Coyotes and the Symphony of Loons, both of which are available on SoundCloud.

    Bio: Ronald Keith Salmon was raised on a small sheep farm on Vancouver Island, Canada. This intimacy with animals ignited a sense of wonder in the mystery and the miracle of the Natural World. To deepen this sense of wonder, Keith studied animal science at university—where he received a B.Sc. in Animal Science and a Ph.D. in Animal Genetics. After a tenure as a Professor of Animal Biotechnology, Keith’s dreams led him to leave the academic world to engage more directly with the animals and plants who share this planet.

    Keith interweaves original videography, poetry, prose, sound, and song to explore the intimate relationship between the Natural World and the World of Dreams. His work represents a constellation of the insights and revelations gained through his lifelong exploration of Nature’s mysteries through the lenses of both biological science and art—and his 35-year apprenticeship in the study of dreams. Keith’s performances and presentations awaken a sense of wonder where the creatures in our dreams may become mentors who provide guidance on how we may walk in beauty on this earth.
