I’ve made an audio version of my book of dreams. This is an experimental audio artwork of narrated dream stories set to atmospheric musical scores.
We are all flexing our cores in this beautiful, precarious world. I would like to share with you my perceptions. Or rather, how I have listened to my soul speaking to me in the language of dreams.
I am joined in these recordings by the voices of my creative sisters, who have brought these texts to life in ways I could not have imagined. I’m full of gratitude for their spirited, thoughtful and compassionate readings.
During sleep the body and mind repairs itself in order to thrive. It is a time for restoration where essential truths are revealed in the realm of dreams, engaging with all the senses. In dreams, perception of time and space defies scientific laws. There are no rules in these surreal vistas, only an invitation to explore, untethered, and learn the true nature of our fears and desires.
Throughout history a reverence for the power and meaning of dreams has shaped civilisations. They provide us with a potent awareness of ourselves and our bearing in the world.
We sleep. We dream.
