Guided Dreaming is a holistic mental wellness practice utilizing the trance state of dreaming while awake to improve one's physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It was created by Bei Linda Tang based on modern sleep science, ancient dreaming techniques, and insightful dreams she had in 2020 when she experienced chronic pain caused by pandemic-related stress.
Based in Vancouver, Canada, Bei Linda is the founder of Dream Heals, author of Navigate Life with Dreams, and owner/creative director of Dream Designs. She is a mother, wife, environmentalist, and a member, workshop presenter, and the Western Canadian Representative of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. She holds an MBA from the University of British Columbia and is currently pursuing her MA in Psychology (Health & Wellness Concentration) from Adler University.
Why Guided Dreaming?
Dreaming is an active mental state that consolidates memories and processes emotions. Guided Dreaming provides access to the unconscious mind to actively release unwanted emotions so one can self-heal.
Who Can Benefit?
Wake Dreaming can help people from all walks of life reduce stress and anxiety, and live happier, healthier and more productive lives. Those who struggle with chronic stress, anxiety, and/or suffer from recurring nightmares will find it particularly helpful.
Safety, Privacy, and Ethics
Dreaming is safe and natural. Dream-based healing has been practised worldwide since ancient times. During the waking dream experience, participants remain consciously aware of their waking circumstances and can end the session at any time at will. Each person is the ultimate authority and interpreter of their dreams. Participants decide what information to share or not share. Their information is private and confidential.
Participants should join from a quiet space free of distractions and sit comfortably with their backs supported. With breathwork and guided meditation, Tang leads participants into a serene underwater dream, where they experience profound relaxation and tension release and meet a gentle yet powerful octopus to learn the art of mental shapeshifting and enlightenment. During the guided dreaming journey, participants may encounter unique dream elements, such as whales, dolphins, childhood companions, mermaids, and deities, which symbolize unique personal healing insights. At the end of each session, there will be a sharing circle for participants to talk about their dreaming experiences and ask questions.
