Welcome to the Dreaming
The Dreaming for Australia’s First Peoples is an ongoing creative force that speaks of the power and beauty of their ancestors and of the nature, or Country, they identify with today. Listening to Elders is the best introduction to this realm; but also, we need to be reminded of our own Dreaming stories, too often lost in the mists of time, but still waiting to reconnect us to the earth, to each other and to the spirit of life. Dr Geoffrey Berry presents on this “ecomythic” paradigm, as well as the dreams we can all experience that link us to it every night. Book Geoff Now!
Growth and Evolution
Over 90% of our evolution took place in close contact with nature.
We learned the arts of growth and transformation from our world, inside and out.
The REAL Urban Myth…
… is that we can be free from the limits of nature.
Dissolve the traps of modern life to feel renewed!
Your Dreaming Soul
Tell me your dreams – from sleep and in the waking hours – and i will help you to see that they reveal about your soul.
Sometimes this can be scary or embarrassing.
But it also links you to the great mysteries of life and power.
Let me guide you along this path of awakening to the mythic within and without.

About Dr Geoffrey Berry
I gained my PhD (Monash University 2010) by writing an analysis of the symbol of light and what is has meant to people over time, especially in the context of environmental consciousness. The thesis answered the question: what does the way we think about light, in symbolic terms, say about the way we treat nature? It was driven by my feeling that when we think of light as some kind of ethereal force, connected to a kind of ‘otherworldly’ spirituality, we stop being true to our natures as intelligent animals who are dependent upon the earth and its other creatures. Both examiners ranked it in the top 5% of the world on several counts.
I also completed an MA in Creative Literature (Deakin University 2005) on our dreams as underworld journeys and initiatory rites. Sojourn (as it was called) explored the way our personal dreams can link us to a mysterious world of symbolic power, similar to ancient myths and shamanic journeys, even in a seemingly desacralised modern world. It also includes a philosophical component that outlines the ideas that went into the creative piece. Examiner Sean Kane (respected author of Wisdom of the Mythtellers) compared my writing favourably to that of Leonard Cohen. I was pretty happy with this result, to say the least…Read More
