Several years ago, I got the chance to tour neolithic sites all across northern Spain. The Chamber of the Vulvas (pictured above) is one of the most powerful and magical places I came across in my wanderings. A few days after I toured Cueva Tito Bustillo where this chamber resides, I dreamt that I was sitting in the sacred space with a group of ancient female ancestors. In the velvety darkness of the chamber, I felt the women perform some type of ancient ritual with me.
When I awakened from the dream, I was in a state of bliss. The ‘ordinary’ world positively pulsed with magic and I was transformed in ways that I can’t even begin to put into words. It was sacred and profound.
Thousands of years of patriarchal rule have left many women unmoored and disconnected from the sacred feminine. We have lost touch with our powerful feminine energies and wisdom.
Luckily, there are ways to reconnect with our wild and sacred feminine nature. One my favorite ways is through dreams. Dreams reconnect us to the yearnings of our Soul in a deep and wonderful way. Dreams can help us find our way back home.
Women are born dreamers. We actually begin dreaming in our mother’s womb and never stop. But there are a few tools that can help us access and remember our dreams more easily. And it is possible to enter a conscious dream state during the day. Indigenous people do it all the time. Various forms of dream journeying have been in use all over the world for 40,000+ years.
Seeing in the Dark
Since the dawn of human civilization, women have journeyed into dream space seeking wisdom and guidance for themselves and their tribe. All over the world, indigenous tribes developed techniques for taking shamanic journeys into dream space. The word ‘shaman’ actually means ‘one who sees in the dark.’ Many of our feminine ancestors were dreaming shaman.
Today, it’s possible to use many different methods to enter into a dream state – drumming, rattling, dance, chant, breath-work, herbs… and once in dream space, we can energetically travel and explore, gaining insights as we look beyond the illusions of ordinary day to day reality.
Dream and Transform
Reconnecting with the sacred feminine and the power of dreams played a huge part in my personal transformation. I learned how to connect with spirit and actively explore my dreams and my life was never the same!
My conscious journeys into dream space have given me a much broader view of my world and my life. I have come to understand how my mind works, and what my heart craves. I have also learned to embrace my feminine powers and strengths, and use them in all kinds of situations.
Shamanic journeying, lucid dreaming, flights of fancy, guided visualizations, trance work, talking to angels… all of these are ancient ways to reconnect with spirit and Soul.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to consciously reconnect with all that sacred wisdom? I am here to help you do just that.

“I am dreaming back my sisters
Whisper-worn footfalls on the Temple steps
Heavy-breasted cauldron keepers
Gentle-handed womb sounders
Come home sisters, come home”
