Remedios Varo's "Creation of the Birds."

Welcome to Linda Mastrangelo’s

Dream Alchemy!

For those seeking to understand, explore

and be excited by their dreams.

Dream Work as Dream Medicine

I have been a prolific dreamer since childhood and have kept dream journals for over 25 years. Through my own personal practices, I discovered the remarkable potential of dreams. Since everybody dreams, then we all have access to the wise and healing messages there; as well as the dream’s transformative possibilities as “good medicine.”

Over time, I have developed techniques that have empowered people to make more mindful changes in their lives and communities. Because dreams can go right to the core of issues, I use a gentle approach while encouraging  my clients to explore at their own pace while accessing their own wisdom.

I offer individual and group consultation as well as professional development workshops and trainings for those who seek to work with dreams in their own practices.

Linda’s areas of emphasis include:

  • Dream Work for Personal & Professional Development

  • Grief  & Loss

  • Coping with Sleep Issues

  • Nightmares & Stress

  • Working with Life Transitions

  • Family Systems & Ancestral Healing

  • Expressive Arts

  • Emotions and the Body

  • Building Self Esteem

  • Finding Your Life’s Calling

  • Jungian Methodologies

  • Spiritual Alchemy

  • Sacred Activism

Services

Because our culture does not honor the dream, the language and content can be elusive, if not discouraging.  Dream Alchemy is here to help you better understand and unlock the secrets of your dreams by providing individual dream sessions, groups and workshops. By being a direct participant  in your soul journey, you will ultimately make better choices and live a much deeper, richer and authentic life.

One-on One Dream Counseling

These 70 minute sessions are designed to help you explore your dreams in a deeper way and discover how to uncover the “gold” or guidance , gifts and messages hidden there.  With these new found discoveries and skills, you can take positive action in your waking life.

Sessions available in person, Skype or by phone. Fee is $125 and dream packages are available!

Dream Groups

The group series is designed to approach dreams in a dynamic/interactive yet safe setting. Explore dreams with others using carefully crafted techniques to help unpack the wisdom and magic hidden there. From expressive arts to active imagination, have fun discovering the creative potential of your dreams!

Dream Group sessions are usually offered in a small group setting (up to 8 members) in a 6 week series/ each session about 100-120 minutes each. Fee is $240. Check the website regularly for groups starting up or contact me if you wish to create your own group.

Professional Development Trainings

For professionals seeking guidance in how to work with and empower their clients through dreams.

In indigenous cultures, it was often the healers or “medicine men and women” who would aid those who were suffering by offering their knowledge illuminated by a vision or dream. We modern day healers too can glean the wisdom of our client’s dreams by unpacking the messages or “good medicine” already living there.

Please check website regularly for upcoming workshops and trainings. If would like me to come to your organization, you may contact me directly for personally tailored trainings.

Some topics include: Dreams as Good Medicine, Dreams and Grief, Dreams and the Body, Dreams as Spiritual Practice, Nightmares and Children,

GRIEF GROUP:  For Those Who Experienced Loss

Hosts: Linda Mastrangelo, LMFT #86356

Michele Barbic, MFT Registered Intern # 75034 (under the supervision of Steven E. Smith, LMFT (MFC 46347).

When: THURSDAYS

Time: 11:00-12:30 PM

Everyone grieves differently and there is no one ‘right’ answer for how to cope. But you don’t need to be alone in this process. No matter how long you’ve been grieving, we offer a safe and compassionate place to explore the complex emotions of loss, provide tools and strategies, as we build a community of hope and connection.

Some of these topics will include:

• finding out what you need to do, not what others think ‘is right’

• how to avoid unneeded stress while tending to your feelings of grief

• finding ways to self-soothe

• building a community of hope and connection

Cost: $40 per session/ $220 for 6 sessions

 PSIBERDREAMING CONFERENCE 2014

Linda Mastrangelo – Meeting the Psychopomp: An Oneironaut’s Journey into the Underworld

 

Linda Mastrangelo

Meeting the Psychopomp: An Oneironaut’s Journey into the Underworld

From the Greek psuchopompos meaning the “guide of souls”, a psychopomp (creature, spirit, deity or even human) is one who can travel between worlds. In this paper, I will be exploring dreams where I am assisting medicine elders with psychopompic rituals such as healing and ushering the dead, or helping families grieve their recently departed. I will also be exploring the parallels of these nightly journeys with those of my own ancient ancestral practices. It isn’t surprising that I chose to engage in grief work in waking life, helping families who are experiencing their own initiations through grieving their departed loved ones. Overall, these dreams feel very real and potent – as if I am engaging in a second career at night! My hope is to invite other dreamers to share and dialogue about psychopompic dreaming “with the other.”
