The Dreaming Woman reclines on the earth with a dreaming bowl near her head. The new moon is speaking the dream's message to her. Her dream fibers emanate from her navel, and connect with the Dream Weave. She Who Dreams the World into Being is each of us as we enter our night journeys.

About Connie Kaplan

May I introduce myself to you? I want you to know the "ordinaries" of my life, because I want you to know who it is that is offering these teachings!

I was born Connie Cockrell, on December 16, 1948 (at 10:45 AM in Lamesa, Texas for you astrologers). My name is now Connie Kaplan. I am married to a wonderful man, Vic Kaplan.  I have two grown children and one step daughter who is also grown.  Vic and I live in Los Angeles, California and Austin, Texas.

about Connie Kaplan


I hold an undergraduate degree in English, a Master of Arts in Radio, Television and Film Production, a second Master of Arts in psychology, and a Doctorate of Ministry.


Raised in Texas as a minister's daughter, spirituality has always been an important foundation for my life. I spent twenty-five years actively involved in traditional religion. In my mid-twenties, I began to explore other spiritual systems. However, as a career choice, I went into television production. I spent fifteen years working as a free lance script supervisor and then an associate director. In my early thirties, I had reached what every American woman might rightly call the American Dream. I was married to a wonderful man – a television executive producer. I had a healthy, beautiful daughter, a great house in a great neighborhood, and an enviable career that offered plenty of options for time off to be a mom.


In 1986 I was suddenly struck with a mysterious virus which rendered me almost helpless for about two years. During this time, unable to work and incapable of handling normal life circumstances, I experienced a profound spiritual transformation which altered not only my inner experience of life, but my outer expression of life. While I slept life away, I dreamed myself awake.


Since the early nineties, when I returned to the "normal" world, I have devoted my life to teaching others what I learned (and continue to learn) from this mystical awakening. I teach dreaming as a spiritual practice. I counsel with modern day mystics. I nurture the birth of that same awakening in everyone I encounter.


This web site is an extension of that work, and I hope will be an inclusion of many more people into the magic of dreaming the world into being!
