MORPHEUS is the newsletter of the Dreamworker’s Forum whose purpose is to foster communication among the many people interested in dreams who share the view that dreams are a profound source of personal and collective wisdom for us all.


The Forum’s Marketing Committee has been hard at work creating a Facebook page for Forum members through the efforts of Elliann Rea and Katherine Bell. The page’s title is the “Santa Cruz Area Dreamworker’s Forum” and its intent is to give area dreamers a go-to place for area dreamworking news, resources, inspiration, and so much more.

Forum members will be able to post messages to one another quickly and to announce any upcoming dream-relevant events. All Forum members are encouraged to make use of this opportunity not only to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the Santa Cruz area, but to touch base with your Forum friends a little more often than networking with them at our monthly open house events.

Currently the page is operating as a closed group, so any Forum member interested in joining will first need to be invited into the group. You can do this by simply emailing either Elliann (at or Katherine (at and requesting an invitation. Once the invitation is received, respond and you will be active in the group.

Thanks to both Elliann and Katherine for helping to make this avenue possible for the Forum!


Our next open house will be Sunday, April 16th at Marsha’s home from 1:30 to 4:30 PM. This month Forum member Richard King will introduce us to the process of “Voice Dialog.” Compared to dream work, voice dialog is a differently structured way at looking into our unconscious. It requires a sacred space, patience, an absence of agenda and, of course, willingness on the part of the participant to be open to perhaps startling self-realizations.
