Angela Grillo is a DreamCrafter: dream reader, dream yogi, artist, maker-producer of performance.

Angela currently creates transformational workshops with Susan Ackerman Joseph and performance based projects using dreams as the main source of inspiration for content and development.

Angela holds an MFA in Theatre-Performance Making with her thesis in DreamCrafting. Multiple projects were created with the Reflective Collective, including boxWINDOWdoor, which was presented at International Association of Dreams Conference and PRAYER: A Song Cycle, which was produced in Los Angeles at Eclectic Company Theatre and Artshare LA and in Seattle with The Fisher Ensemble.

Angela studied lucid dreaming with Fariba Bogzaran, PhD., Marion Woodman’s feminine consciousness, Robert Bosnak’s Embodied Imagination, holds a BFA from California Institute of the Arts, and has her 200-hour YTT from World Conscious Yoga Family at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram.

Angela and her Broadmoor studio have a unique, warm energy that makes you instantly feel at home. There are three other yoga teachers in house that teach Bhakti yoga.


1. Tell me about what you do. 

It’s called dreamcrafting.  We work with your dreams as a source of healing, creativity, and expression. 

Some call me a “dream reader”. I facilitate individuals or groups to learn how to work with their dreams in order to take those lessons, energy, or wisdom into their waking life.

I use different techniques and even somatic practices in all of this work. Embodied imagination is another dream work technique I use.

Dream yoga is a vehicle for expression of your dreams. We use yoga to get into your body and bring the feeling of the dreams into the body in order to be transformed. In dream yoga there are techniques likes visualization, meditation, and free movement. I have been teaching yoga for 7 years. I created dream yoga to bring the practices together.


2. How long have you been in business? 

May of 2017 is when I started dreamcrafting. I opened my studio in May of 2018.


3. How do people find you online? 

angelagrillo.com, Facebook, Instagram @angelagrillo_dreamcrafting and on Sound Cloud.


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

How important dreams are. Dreams can help guide you more than even a life coach can. You have all the wisdom from your own soul. We tend to go outwards to look for answers instead of looking within.


5. Lagniappe Info. 

I have always been drawn to dreams.

If you want more than just a dream reading, you can schedule deeper work with me. We can do 4 to 8 sessions. These sessions can be used for collaborative, creative or healing purposes.

Dreaming is a lot of bodywork. The dream yoga compliments that.

Using embodied imagination techniques, I created a play with another woman that went for 7 years.

If you are looking for a new path, whether it’s a new job or you want to write a book, I work with individuals and artists to help them find that path.

I hold workshops for dreaming so you can “experience your dreams”. It encompasses all the techniques and you practice dream art.
