a community of dreamworkers, the dream-curious, healers, writers & lovers of Earth

diving deep in good company |  insight, inspiration & connection





I love the high mountain desert, feel a little antsy with small talk, and can't get enough of beautiful vocals over a good beat.

I’m committed to growing this community of dream-lovers and the dream-curious, bringing together healers, people in a healing process, artists, lovers of the Earth, and everyone else involved in growth and self-discovery.

I've had vivid dreams for as long as I can remember. I explored them on and off for years, without any real guidance, and then dove deep when I was in acupuncture school.

I was working toward my Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine, on my way to my role now as a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist - and got my mind blown by the ways the symbolic language of Chinese medicine shows up in our dreams. (More about that on the Blog.) I've been offering dreamwork to my patients for 10 years. The power of dreams to inform the healing process truly amazes me.

Now I live in an especially gorgeous, extremely remote part of the world, in a community that tends to slow down in the Winter. For years, while agriculture and tourism are quiet and the nights are long, my dream group has been getting together. In my own healing process and my creative work, my dreams combined with support from my kind, perceptive dream group have been invaluable.

It was this group that inspired me to create The Dreamers' Den online. Facilitating these groups and hosting this podcast are an honor and a joy. I'm endlessly impressed, and deeply touched, by what each dreamer brings. We dive right in to the heart of things, engaging with our dreams and exploring creativity together.

Do you feel me on loving dreams?

On longing for meaningful conversation with people who want to dive deep?

On the sense that our dreams have more to tell us than we can unveil on our own?

I'd be honored to have you join our community.

Leilani, through study and experience, has an incredible capacity to "hear" the story of our body and soul through dreams. Her rare combination of critical thinking, medical intelligence and poetic basis of mind makes her a unique healer.

- Matthew C., MA Depth Psychology, Wilderness Guide

One of the things I appreciate most is Leilani's ability to listen to a dream, ask me thoughtful questions that help me to delve further into it, and then shape [an acupuncture] session based on what we've uncovered.

- Tessa B., Writer

I have been a dream worker for 13 years, and it is a powerful part of my inner life. Leilani's method of looking at dreams through the 5 element theory of Chinese medicine has opened up a whole new world of understanding for me.
