Anat – Egyptian Ancient Dream Interpretation and Symbolism
Workshop Area 2
11:00 – 11:45am

Do you have dreams that stay with you after you wake?  Was there something about it that you knew had meaning? Have you ever dreamt about an object or an animal that left such a strong impression on you?  Do you believe that your dreams could have hidden messages from your ancestors or from the Gods?  The Ancient Egyptians did, so much so, that this idea permeates many facets of Ancient Egyptian writings.  

Understanding dream messages is a bridge to connecting with the inner Self.  Understanding the language of dreams opens up untapped knowledge and inner strength.  Ancient Egyptians called this inner strength within our hearts, the KA spirit.  Those who take on the practices of strengthening their connection with the KA spirit will find an inner peace and profound meaning of Self that cannot be shaken by the ups and downs of daily life.  

Come and learn the AE interpretation of some common dream symbols that may be hiding a deeper meaning.   At the end of the talk we will do a group interpretation of a dream.  Someone at random in the group will be chosen to share their dream story with the chance for others in the group offer up “If it were my dream, it would mean this…” for the Dreamer.
