Walter Hrycaj is the director of the of the School of Metaphysics.
The School of Metaphysics is preparing for our annual Dream Awareness Weekend that will take place April 26 to 28. The purpose for this event is to raise awareness on dreams and dreaming in the community. Attendees will be able to see dream-inspired artwork that has come from the inner mind or from the artists' nightly dreams.
We will be having a dream-inspired art show and dessert taster on Saturday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. where dream interpretation will also be offered. A silent auction will be held for the artwork displayed. All proceeds will go to the building improvement of the Columbia School of Metaphysics which is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit service and educational organization.
Attendees can taste and vote on their favorite dessert. The dessert with the most votes at the end of the event will be awarded with a "Best Dessert in Columbia" certificate. Come join the festivities and have a dream interpreted!
We are most excited about the opportunity for the artists to share their dreams through creative expression and the sacred space it holds for others to be inspired to create art from their own nightly visions.
Community members should come to support a community that values dreams and dreaming. I believe we live in a society where dreams are undervalued and not encouraged enough in the realm of evolution or development as a species. In times past dreams have shaped most of the Western world bringing us to the industrious times we live in today. Dreams can still shape more of our future when the individuals in society value them and use the dreams productively in the life. This event is centered around a national event. Sixteen school branches across the Midwest will be participating in some form to educate others of the importance of our dreams. For more information about dreams, go to the School of Metaphysics website.
