Practices for Dreaming & Awakening
- with Dr. Jennifer Marie Lane, DC -
As Dreamers, yogis and mystics we navigate the inner and outer aspects of our lives, weaving webs of connection and belonging. Come along with me, step across the threshold, place your feet on the Mystic Path, walk the Beauty Way, and…
Dr. Jennifer Marie Lane’s service to the world is through her devotion to dreams and embodied life. She is a mother, dream oracle, chiropractor, and teacher of earth wisdom and sacred movement. She has studied dreamwork and healing from both an academic and experiential perspective at Stanford, Esalen and beyond. Her facilitation invites participants into a realm where body, heart, mind, soul and spirit(s) freely intermingle - where Dreams come alive!
As an undergrad at Stanford University, Jennifer had a mini existential crisis as her intellectual aspirations were challenged by spiritual awakenings. Her traditional Christian worldview fell apart and she no longer wished to pursue a PhD in Anthropology, let alone complete her Bachelor’s.
She experienced a huge heart expansion at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur in the Summer of 2002. After that, the world of academia lost its all-encompassing glamour and authority. So, while she completed her degree in Medical Anthropology and Anthropological Genetics, she immersed herself even more deeply in the study and practice of yoga, meditation, dreamwork, healing, alchemy, and earth wisdom. She continues to do so on a daily basis, as her thirst for knowledge is seemingly unquenchable!
She also walks the path of Beauty, Love & Magic, having received initiations into the Great Mystery in Sedona, AZ and Glastonbury, UK - home of Avalon, the Tor and Chalice Well Gardens. The mystical path continues to guide and inspire her onward.
In the Spring of 2016, she and her husband left their San Francisco home of 10+ years, and embarked on an epic adventure. They lived on the road full-time in an RV, traveling, teaching, making a home and invoking Beauty, Love & Magic wherever they landed. Jennifer gave birth in the RV to her beloved son, Taliesin. She is happy to have landed in Bend, OR with her husband, Dr. Mike Lane, and son.
Jennifer offers dream temples and oracle readings, 1:1 body-centered ritual sessions, sacred movement classes, gatherings, and retreats that evoke a deep sense of heart-soul connection, as well as online and 1:1 studies for continued integration and embodiment. She invites each of you to follow your true path, and to wander a bit on a walkabout where there is no path, only the living Dream.
“Jennifer is a true light healer and Heart-way shower. She is the most inspiring and intuitively gifted teacher I know. She has empowered me to trust my own heart wisdom and internal guidance, which has helped me to blossom and evolve exponentially, beyond words! I am eternally grateful for her love and expression.” ~ Edwina Ferro
“I just want to thank you, Jennifer. When I reached out to you over a year ago, I had no idea what kind of journey I was calling into my life, but I am so grateful I did. I am astounded by the things I've learned, experiences I've had, and journeys I've been on, physically, mentally and spiritually. I had no idea I'd come this far into spiritual adulthood and I have so much further to go, but I am on my path and I don't know I would be this far along if it wasn't for you. Thank you for being you, for guiding me and supporting me along the way, and thank you for your friendship. It is pure magic and I am so grateful.” ~ Lisa Fox
"I saw the information about Jennifer’s Sebastopol Dream Group and was immediately attracted. The group met for two hours in the evening. For many years, I have kept a dream journal and I have attended other dream events. I also read her book. Jennifer is very skilled at guiding interactions and encouraging meaningful, open communication about dreams. She brings experience to provide depth and breadth. She also clearly listens with fresh ears. In the dream groups I attended with her, dreams were spoken and new dimensions and interpretations came to awareness. Without exaggeration, working with Jennifer is a great delight.” ~ Marc Durand
"ODE is a lovely, clear, coherent, accessible book. The breadth of experience in frames of reference is wonderfully broad, without being judgmental or intimidating - no small trick! Thank you for writing, and for bringing deep knowledge and wisdom about dreaming to an ever widening audience."~ Jeremy Taylor, D.Min.
