Hi Silenceseeker, Thank you for your response. Just to clarify further, do you mean when I realise i'm in the dream instead of engaging in the narrative to use the breath and the head turning movements to move the energy of the dream? I would say that the experience of the drama brings my focus to this narrative and without it I wouldn't know what to focus on. I didn't clarify in my first post that the intention to go into the nature of my relationship with my mother wasn't my intention for the meditation I did. My intention was to heal myself of depression. Then this experience came up in my dreaming. I feel like the next logical step might be to hold a ceremony with the intention to go into this experience further then see if it comes up in my dreaming again and if it does try to do the recap techniques you mentioned?

Hi, I've read through the content of this website and I wonder if there's any thoughts on combining what is called recapitulation here and dreaming? Can you recapitulate in the dream space. Example I do a meditation / ceremony using drumming with an intention. I then have what I call a dream drama. Where a drama in my normal life, in this case i'm going to use the example of my relationship to my mother and the energies within that relationship are expressed in the dream. The drama or narrative plays out then I find myself in my room connected to my physical body but still in a trance/dreamlike state and there's a vibration on my body that when focused on becomes tense and painful until I focus on it and am able to move this vibration off my body. As I explore these experiences and try to bring cohesion to them I find that experiences like these definitely do affect the nature of the relationships or the drama that's playing out in my normal life. According to your traditions or understandings could this be an example of a combination of what you call recapitulation and dreaming?
