“The world needs practitioners who can work with dreams, explore their mystery, and restore their medicine – The world needs dreamworkers!“
“Hello, I’m Christopher Sowton!”
How can I help you?
Are you in a position where people are bringing you their dreams but you don’t know how to work with them? You know that dreams are important and should be taken seriously but you were not taught how to work with them in a way that you feel confident.
Often what is lacking is the experience of working with a method consistently. And that’s what I do, I provide you with that method and support you as you start to practice. I train Dreamworkers!
In my 30 + years of practicing healthcare as a Naturopath in downtown Toronto, dreams have always held a place in helping people heal. I first awakened to the healing potential of connecting to my dream life when I watched the most amazing film called, “The Way of the Dream,” which features the remarkable dream interpretation skills of Marie Louise Von Franz.
Soon after I watched that film I had an amazing dream that I called ”Three Wolves in the Water” which confirmed my calling as a dreamworker and dream educator. Since then, I have never doubted that dreams provide us with critically important information.
At that time I was a student intern at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and my fellow students were bringing me their dreams and the dreams of their clients; I would help them work with the dreams and get insights and connections. I became ‘the dream guy.’
In the late 1980s, Dr. Jim McNamara of Toronto was an important teacher for me, particularly in the areas of gestalt therapy and primal therapy. Also around this time I encountered the work of Dr. Graham Farrant, an Australian primal therapist who focused particularly on the earliest experiences of human life: sperm, egg, conception, implantation, gestation, birth and infancy. Through this work I came to understand that many people have significant ‘incarnation’ (coming into the body) issues which continue to influence their lives and perceptions.
Having worked with literally thousands of dreams over the years, I have compiled my experience into a book that is now in its third incarnation, called: Dreamworking: How to Listen to the Inner Guidance of Your Dreams, published in 2017.
Yes! There is a huge local and global community of people who take dreams seriously. Feel free to check them out—they have lots of dream-related events that might interest you!
