I was in this room with a bunch of other people. It felt like an airplane but seats were facing each other like a train and we weren't in the air. Ryan Hamilton was "piloting" it. He told us to open these gill type things on our face beneath our eyes (I don't remember what he called them) and to find our center and focus on it, focus on keeping balance.
Then all at the same time we all just dropped. Nothing was actually happening outside of the room but it felt like we were free falling in the best way. Like droppingo out of space to earth. It lasted for a long time and I was temped to pass out several times, but I looked at this person who was Ryan's helper and was making eye contact with people who were feeling like they might loose consciousness and telling people psychically to "find your sence of balance".
It was an incredible mental focus and a continual drop diving into yourself basically. Eventually it ended for all of us at the same time and most people just smiled and got up and left the room.
I got up and went over to talk to the helper person and asked what just happened. They said that we were working with this plant, they held it up and it looked like a root in the shape of a huge brain about 2.5 feet across. Ryan finally came out of the pilots chamber and saw me asking about it. He was holding this big stick that looked a little like a bird head and neck and stuck it to the brain and then turned it upside down and said this word that in my mind I knew meant ostriche. He said it three times really intensely with his eyes wide, implying that this plant had a connection with the birds. I thought that it was strange cause ostriches have a small brain.
We went outside to the farm/community place that we were all living in and I kept feeling amazed by what had just happened. Later I went to seek Ryan out and he told me that I could practice this experience on my own. I was learning how to do that when I woke up.
In the waking world I just came out of the welcoming home celebration for a deep men's work retreat that I was in a week and a half ago and it is certainly a "deep dive". Connected? Maybe...
