About Carla Blowey
Carla Blowey has gained insight, guidance and wisdom from her dreams for more than 25 years. In 1991, at age 33, she entered the most painful and challenging time of her life when the death of her five-year-old son, Kevin, and the nightmare that predicted it, forced her to re-examine her perceptions about death, grief and the afterlife. Dreaming Kevin became a valuable tool for reclaiming her life. Using her dream journal with much discernment and prayer, Carla discovered the symbols, metaphors and archetypes that led to forgiveness, healing, spiritual growth, and new life. In 1994, Carla began coordinating bereavement programs for children and adults. In 1997, Carla retired from hairdressing to be present for her growing family. In the midst of changing diapers and teaching her oldest daughter to drive, she answered the call to write Dreaming Kevin(c). An exceptional speaker, Carla has presented workshops and webinars on dreams, grief, healing, and after-death phenomena since 2002, and is a sought after presenter at national conferences such as the Compassionate Friends and Bereaved Parents of the USA. Carla is also the former editor-in-chief/columnist for Living with Loss Magazine. Carla is a Certified Dream Work Facilitator through the Marin Institute for Projective Dream Work with director, Dr. Jeremy Taylor. As a dream worker, Carla believes that "all dreams come to us in service of health and wholeness and only the dreamer knows for certain what his/her dream means."* (*Jeremy Taylor) Using the projective format, we share our "imagined version" of the dream offering the dreamer another perspective to see it differently leaving the analysis and interpretation to the dreamer. Carla says, "Sharing our dreams is an opportunity to see our life journey and our grief journey from a different perspective. With each insight, we can examine the diverse issues that complicate living with loss, illuminating the imagery from the inner world to manifest creative solutions in the outer world." Weaving the values of spirituality with personal loss and transition for psychological and spiritual growth, Carla invites the dream images to speak their truth, thus creating a space for grace to nourish...and Love to flourish. Carla lives and dreams in beautiful southwestern Colorado with her family. Kevin continues to be her spiritual coach, inspiring and guiding Carla on this incredible journey. Visit www.dreamingkevin.
