"I can’t recommend this enough. I have always been a vivid dreamer. After losing Cody, Carla and my dreams led me to finding peace, understanding and some healing. Watching others find the same healing although different journeys was beautiful. Some were not vivid dreamers but found their dreams waiting for them. I credit God, my dreams, Cody and Carla with helping me to begin my healing." ~ Laura Browning Rattan, dreamer

DREAMLIGHT CAFE for BEREAVED PARENTS on ZOOM
Join Carla Blowey, certified dream work facilitator (MIPD), presenter, author and bereaved mother in the DreamLight Café via Zoom for an intimate four-week session using dreams as a tool for healing through loss and transition.
This is a closed group designed specifically for bereaved parents who are interested in using their dreams (the good, the bad and the ugly!) as a tool for healing and transformative growth.
No experience necessary! Come with an open heart and a
desire to see your grief journey and your dreams differently for transformative
growth and healing.
DREAMLIGHT CAFE on ZOOM
Dream work is an alternative tool for transformative healing during times of loss and transition. No previous experience with dream work is required nor do you need to be dreaming every night. Any dream remembered from any time in your life is a dream worth sharing because all dreams come to us in the service of health and wholeness! All that is needed is a willingness to see differently and be true to what is in your heart!
to the projective format of dream work - a collaborative effort by all group
members in support of the dreamer to unpack the message of the dream. All
feedback is projective; confidential; dream group is not a substitute for
therapy or counseling.
Are you still thinking about joining my dream group but too afraid to come alone? Let it go! BRING A TRUSTED FRIEND who has your back and share those wild and crazy dreams in a confidential, safe and warm setting.

Send your dream to me via email and I'll send you my projective feedback with thought-provoking questions to get you started. All correspondence is strictly confidential! Payment of $25 in advance through Venmo or PayPal.

"Just as a decanter holds the wine that is poured from the bottle to aerate and open its aroma and flavor, dream sharing enables the dreamer to "aerate" or breathe life into the imagery and landscape of the dream." ~Carla Blowey

"WHEN I DREAM OF YOU"
At one of my first meetings of The Compassionate Friends, I attended two of Carla's dream workshops. I was amazed to watch the transformation of a group of bereaved mothers who were tired, frightened and depressed, feel more rested, excited and hopeful. I'm not saying the whole class leaped from grief to joy in a single night, but everyone who came back for a second session returned with a smile and a measure of hope they didn't have before.
One women tearfully told us how she feared nightmares so much that she avoided sleep to the point of near physical breakdown. With careful instruction from Carla and a new set of interpretive tools, this dear bereaved mother began to look forward to appearances of her child in her dreams. She no longer woke with tears of frustration but instead tears of joy for a dream conveying new memory, a smile or a simple reassurance from her deceased child. Going to bed with hope rather than fear set the tone for a new pathway to dreaming and a more restful night Carla's journey from personal tragedy to creative guide for healing was inspiring. I vividly imagined her own horrific loss and contrasted that with the smiling gentle women as I witnessed this room full of kindred spirits.
And so, I wrote "When I Dream with You". The song is not an accurate re-telling of Carla's story (for that you MUST read her book) but it does, I hope, capture its emotion and purpose.
ABOUT MICHAEL NUNLEY
Michael Nunley has always had a great love for music. As a youth he was singing in churches and sharing the stage with well known performers in shows and television appearances all across the Ohio Valley. Growing up in a military family, Michael traveled extensively. He considers himself blessed to have experienced the beauty and diversity of so much of our world and it's people. Michael was a music scholarship recipient at Walters State College and at The University of Tennessee.
In 2000, tragedy struck twice, causing Michael to have a deeply personal change in his attitude and understanding of loss and grief. His sister, Cyndy, took her own life shortly before his father, Col. Billy F. Nunley (U.S.A.F.) lost his fight with a cancerous brain tumor. Michael is profoundly grateful for the opportunity to have written a song for The Compassionate Friends in 2011, and he found the experience brought him a new level of healing. He hopes to pass along some comfort with his poetry and music. In his workshops, he encourages others to use the creative process of writing, as he has done. In 2014 Michael sang and presented workshops at The Compassionate Friends' National Conference in Chicago and performed original music for the opening luncheon as well as the closing tribute to Darcie Simms. Michael says, "Grief is natural. What's UN-natural is dying from it in solitude. Accepting help, learning from it and passing along the healing is far better.
