Unlocking the dreams of the Inner Psychic & Spirit World
The Dream is like a truth of sorts; it is not truth itself, but only an inference of truth. It is as a picture on the wall, seen at night by the light of the stars on which the mind induces various forms according to its fancy. It is when the light of the sun, after the dawn shines upon it, and brings to view, not only its contours, but also its specifics.
Out of the shade of truth in which this dream is, truth is opened, when it is known that the spiritual is, and what its quality in comparison with the natural. What the human soul is and its quality, as well as the nature of the substance that flows into it; into the perceptive and thinking mind, and from this, into the body.
What is it about?
Join us on an 8-week series excavating our interior dreamscape of the signs and symbols that lead us to deeper spiritual awakening of the life our soul is carving out for us.
Each week we will learn ancient stories, symbols and signs to bring meaning and clarity to the dreams on which we have been fixated. We will learn how to intuitively read the dreams of each other. Every symbol carries an elemental power that transcends boundaries and holds significance for each dreamer; similar content will have a totally different meaning depending on who is dreaming the dream.
Why do this workshop?
How we dream and how we interpret dreams is analysed as a way of accessing our subconscious fears, desires and preoccupations. We will be able to describe, discuss and illustrate the fascinating dream elements and their relevance in our lives TODAY.

Journeying is available in a one-on-one session or a group workshop with Grace Vaughan. Hour-long sessions and workshops are held at TLC Parramatta, or online through Virtual TLC.
Taking a Shamanic Journey
Journeying is a Shamanic meditative exercise guided by Grace, who leads the journey with the beat of a drum or rattle.
Over 20 to 30 minutes, during which you may lie down, the Shaman guides the meditation with creative visualisations and storytelling. This process enables complete relaxation and calmness of mind-body and facilitates tuning into psychic realms and/or spiritual awakening.
Journeying can often result in a pleasant awareness, and increased clarity around situations and experiences in your life. Journeying is most beneficial when dreaming your future into being – this is known as Sacred Dreaming.
Come prepared to take notes, as Grace will ask you to write about your Journey. In the group experience, the Shaman may also read tarot cards to divine meaning during the post-Journey discussion.
What to expect:
- Lying in a comfortable position
- Being guided by a drum beat
- Allowing the creative mind to intuit the flow of thought
- After the Journeying, journaling the story
- A summary of your Journey experience
Individual Session A$50
Hour-long meditation sessions and workshops with Grace Vaughan, are held at TLC Parramatta, or online through Virtual TLC. Various types of meditation are offered. Please enquire.
The Meditative State
Meditation focuses on bringing about relaxation to each body part, through the breath and visualisation. Once the whole body is relaxed and breathing is deep and rhythmic, the chitter-chatter of the mind is slowed down. Grace then leads you through each chakra centre, with the intention of bringing about a clear, balanced equilibrium.
As you meditate, a state of light-ness throughout the physical body is achieved. This brings about awareness of the body’s Light Energy Field (LEF). With regularity of practice, breathing is improved, and an experience of astral travel can ensue, expanding time-space awareness.
Guided Meditation is similar to Journeying, but the focus of the experience is placed on awareness of relaxation and calmness to the body-mind connection rather than creative visualisation. Once this state of awareness is reached the body-mind loses all sense of its physical environment and yields to the peace gained from this relaxed state. Beginners of meditation generally find themselves asleep at this stage.
Guided Meditation with Grace is available in a one-on-one session or a group workshop. Come prepared to take notes, as Grace will ask you to write about your experience. In the group meditation, there will also be an in-depth discussion and a chance to share your experience with others.
What to expect:
- Lying or sitting comfortably
- Relaxing the whole body
- Emptying the mind
- Listening to the Shaman
- Journal and discuss the experience
- Handouts will be given (for practice)
Individual Session A$50
Chakra Anatomy can be studied over four weeks and experienced in small group sessions of 90 minutes at TLC Parramatta. Individuals can experience an hour-long chakra body therapy session at TLC, or study online through Virtual TLC.
Chakra Anatomy Meditation
Chakras are the seven subtle energy centres aligned closely to the spinal structure within our physical anatomy. These energy centres are the colours of the rainbow, and each corresponds to various body parts and organs.
An imbalanced chakra can be felt as having low energy, stressed or a faded or weak auric colour response. This can be experienced both physically and emotionally resulting with dis-ease around corresponding organs, the neck, front and side of the head as well. The lower and upper energy centres are balanced through the heart chakra. This is when the body forms complete alignment.
We can learn to tune-up our chakra centres, like playing scales on a piano, by keeping our organs and physical body active and vital – i.e. allowing fresh oxygenated blood flow and good cardiovascular-rate in the physical anatomy. This also involves engaging in simple positive visualization and breathing exercises to bring about a healthier vital mind body spirit connection and energy in-flow to the chakra.
What to expect:
- You can be lying down (this is preferable) or comfortably seated
- Grace will determine energy centre imbalances in the body using a pendulum
- Retuning of chakras and restoring balance to your energy centres
Individual Body Therapy A$55
The Practise of Divination
Divination is an ancient Shamanic art and has many varied tools that can be applied. The Shamans of Peru and the Andes would often read leaves or stones to foresee events or seek knowledge for their patients and for the community. Divination can also be sought with the use of tarot cards, astrology, and the Chinese IChing. Grace will read with leaves, stones, or tarot cards.
What to expect:
- The tools are divided into three aspects – mind, body and spirit – to represent the upper, middle, and lower worlds.
- Grace will intuitively give meaning to each level
- You are free to ask questions at the end of the process
- You can write or record the session
Individual Divination A$50
Courses in Basic Astrology with Grace Vaughan are held over 6 weeks of two-hour weekly sessions, at TLC Parramatta.
Learning to Read the Stars
Astrology is an ancient sacred language that spans the Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Medieval epochs, bringing the pantheon of human history and civilisation to the contemporary world.
Modern Western Astrology is a form of divination. The Great luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, the nine planets from our solar system and the minor asteroid, Chiron – known as the wounded healer in Greek mythology will be studied (there are many asteroids, too numerous to study at basic level). Each planet has a myth that connects them to the archetypal traits that we find within human characteristics and behaviours. Learning Western astrology, and how the stars influence our lives, can equip us with psychological insights about human nature and ourselves.
Over the course of 6 weeks with Grace, your expanding knowledge of Astrology will allow you to form a broad and empathetic understanding about yourself and your fellow group members, enough to get you doing charts for your family too.
What to expect:
- A supportive, inspiring group experience
- Map and explore your own natal chart
- Learn the signs, the houses, and the planets – archetypes
- Learn the myths of the Greek gods
- Bringing it all together in week 6
