Driving Dreams

September 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


It’s good thing when you have a driving dream… even if there’s a real problem with the driving, which there almost always is. It’s good thing because the dream is giving you a chance to understand something that’s not quite right in the way you are managing and navigating your life. Driving dreams give us critical feedback, and usually the feedback is very simple and direct: ‘you’re going too fast’…’you don’t have enough control’… ‘you are not at the wheel’…’you don’t know where you’re going’…’you can’t stop yourself’….’ It’s not safe to be moving ahead right now’ etc. The metaphors are clear, and they are all well-known and accessible to anyone who drives. I think this is because driving metaphors are not just conceptual, they are embodied. They come to us as vivid feelings and sensations– if we touch the brakes and they don’t work we feel an immediate and very embodied urgency, whether it be in waking life or in a dream.

So, if you’ve had a driving problem dream recently…be grateful! This is your chance to understand something and start to correct it. And if you’d like to learn more, to hear some other people’s driving dreams, and perhaps share your own dream and get some projective feedback…there’s a good opportunity coming up soon. I will be giving an online (Zoom) presentation on driving dreams at the next Toronto Dreamer’s Meetup on Wed Sept 16th, starting at 7 pm. My talk will be followed by a virtual dream circle, a chance for you to participate in a free dream-sharing experience from the comfort of your own home. For those of you who haven’t joined our Meetup group yet I urge you to check it out. Here’s the link to register– https://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Dreamers-Meetup/events/kbtlkrybcmbvb/

I hope to see you on the 16th. Cheers, Chris.
