About Leslie Fell.

Called to foster well-being and inner peace, and to share my knowledge and experience, I offer a variety of retreat and event experiences at Fells Meadows. Extensive studies and travel across the world expanded my awareness and understanding of mindfulness, inquiry, indigenous practices and the healing aspects of nature.

This experience along with my formal education (Rehabilitation Medicine (O.T.), Masters in Community Health) has provided me the opportunity to learn and experience an array of transformational traditions, modalities and practices. I’ve studied and worked with diverse individuals such as Byron Katie, Dr. Malidoma Somé, Elder Vern Harper (Cree) and Mandaza (Shona).

The Dream World

Dream work can expand and enhance your understanding of your life’s journey.

Whether considered to be messages from our higher selves, ancestors or spirits, dreams have the ability to inform and heal each of us and our community. Regular practice for thousands of years, dreams have guided individuals and communities.

All dreams are worthy of investigation. Learning to work with our unconscious mind, (understanding our dreams is a major way of doing so), resolves conflicts, deals with our neuroses and taps into a deep well of strength and wisdom.

The intention of this retreat is to serve you by sharing what I have learned and experienced as an invaluable and meaningful way of the inner work with dreams. Additionally it provides the opportunity to listen to, share and be with like minded/hearted people eager to begin or further develop their dream work.

 Ideal for those:

  • Keen to tune into messages from your unconscious
  • Wanting to learn about, re-connect with and experience the dream world
  • Curious about indigenous cultures work with dreams
  • Not able to recall dreams and desire to remedy this
  • Perplexed by dreams or experiencing repetitive dreams or nightmares
  • Wanting to listen to the treasure trove of you

What’s included:

You will understand at greater depth:

  • relevance of dreams and how they can inform your life
  • strategies to assist you to remember your dreams
  • practical and effective tools and processes to excavate and understand your dreams
  • the meaning of a significant dream and how it informs your life

Incubated time and place to explore and experience the dream world through structured strategies, tools and practices including:

  • Experiencing the indigenous way of Dream Council
  • Understanding an overview of how you can use the process of the work (of Byron Katie) to understand your dreams
  • Reviewing Jungian methods of working with dreams
  • Solidifying your work with the dream world through ceremony/ritual
  • Accommodations in semi-private or private room or private cabin
  • Five light meals

About Your Facilitator: Leslie Fell

For over two decades I’ve traveled abroad and to a depth with dreams. My passion for dream work was ignited when experiencing dream councils in Africa beginning in the year of 2000. Learning,  experiencing and facilitating both jungian and indigenous ways of working with dreams have been a highlight of my facilitation work.

“Dream Council deepened our connection to ourselves, through our dreams, and then connected us more deeply…as we explored themes and feelings the dreams evoked.  Leslie is a masterful facilitator, and she managed the space with grace and power as needed. Her wisdom and insights up-levelled the experience.”  (SA)

About your facilitator, Leslie Fell's experience with the work:

I am a certified facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. Called to foster well-being and inner peace, I offer mentoring sessions, retreats and pilgrimages. Although I’ve had the honour to learn and experience numerous transformational processes across the world, it’s been my experience that this practice is the most beneficial to address judgements, projections and stressful thoughts. I warmly invite you to explore this process and test it for yourself.

“Not only a skilled facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie, Leslie brings to it broad experience in investigating our inner world. When she has facilitated me in The Work, I was able to gently let go of my unconscious motives and touch a deeper truth.  It went well beyond release from one particular situation.” - Jennifer D
