Turtle Dreamers Circle

About the Turtle Dreamers Circle of Northern Virginia

Indigenous Origin People indigenous to our land have held traditions about dreaming for a long time. They appreciate dreams as gifts of understanding and guidance for the tribe. People sharing dreams support and build community. Everyone dreams and it is easy to begin remembering dreams, if you are interested. Since dreams impart truth on many levels, both personal and social, sharing them helps us understand evolving situations and personal growth.

Welcome to visit
If you have recent dreams you would like to share please feel free to join any bi-monthly meeting in Sterling Virginia held on Tuesday nights twice each month.
We meet from 7:30 to 9:30 PM.
A potluck dinner happens beforehand at 7 PM for anyone who wants to share food and socialize. We ask people to let us know if they are coming.
Building Connection
As we meet and get to know each other well, we will consider what community projects we'd like to do and this too is a part of indigenous tradition. Linking dreams to community service is analogous to raising a windmill to the wind for power. If you have ever felt that change in society is something you want and can't have, this is the way to get it –with connection and trust.

This service will never be a burden –we'll each act on spiritual inspiration, including what our immediate neighbors ask us to do directly!
Linking to Other Circles
Another indigenous tradition we have access to is "prayer lodge" where people meet to detoxify, to pray, to connect, and to open their minds and hearts. Lodges at both Angel House in Leesburg, VA and also at Eden Valley in Dayton, MD are connected to this dreaming circle as is the spiritual teacher Lakota Hasie Frazier, who leads ceremonies of her own making, inspired by the ancients, her Grandmother and Grandfather ancestors. She first began the circles at home and later formed new ones elsewhere, so that this is available to anyone wishing to make peace

"It is not sufficient for religious people to be involved with prayer. Rather, they are morally obliged to contribute all they can to solving the world’s problems."-His Holiness the Dalai Lama
