“My level of consciousness and patriarchal, religious, rational thought chains had prevented me from awaking to new possibilities.”
- Pearl Gregor I, the Woman, Planted the Tree: A Journey through Dreams to the Feminine

I, the Woman, Planted the Tree: A Journey through Dreams to the Feminine is a necessary voice in the dialogue of Western Culture’s patriarchy in institutions, organized religion and even family dynamics and expectations. In a writing voice that blends a colloquial, personal tone w

Pearl E. Gregor is a Dreamworker and educator based in Alberta, Canada. I, the Woman, Planted the Tree is her first book. It is the first book of the series Dreams Along the Way. The book is a memoir of a life, but not just the common themes we encounter in a typical autobiography. Intertwined with the events of the author’s life are her dreams – which is just as important as real life events. As a student of dreams, the author speculates on her dreams, interprets it in a personal as well as uni ...more

“I would rather that you doubt than be blinded by your certainty,” writes Pearl, giving voice to an inner whisper. Indeed, the opposite of faith is not doubt but certainty! Pearl, with an attentive ‘ear’ nestled in her precious one syllable name, saunters skillfully along a path of dreams, reams of them, listening generously and radically with the ears of the heart, the ears of the mind, the ears of the body and above all, the mostly forgotten ears of the sub-conscious. I would describe “I, the ...more

Pearl may be many things, a grandmother, a po, a dream Weaver, a professor, a feminist, a mystic, the list goes on and on. But one thing she is not, is boring. It took me a long time to read this book, not because of how it was written, but because of the effect that the writing had on my psyche. I usually read books written by men, and they are typically direct and chock full of logic and proofs. Things like Plato's Republic, Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, ...more

I,the Woman,Planted the Tree, by Pearl E. Gregor, is a fascinating and inspiring story of one woman’s journey in the discovery of self.
Pearl talks openly and honestly of her clinical depression, preverbal molestation, faith, dreamwork, the impact of the patriarchy throughout her life and so much more. Her story of healing depression through many years of dreamwork involved a good deal of dismantling and rebuilding. She shares her story humbly with the hope that knowing about her depression may h

A very unique book which has greatly encouraged me on my healing journey. There are many good books on inner transformation but very few which describe the process in a personal way. The author does this using dreamwork as a major tool. I appreciate her radical honesty with which she describes the ups and downs of her journey. When you have read this book you can't wait to read the other two as well. I am very thankful for this rare gift and recommand it to everyone who is on a journey to find h ...more

The author has written a riveting account of her mental health challenges since youth and how she came to use her dreams as a doorway to healing and thriving. She generously shares her in-depth knowledge of Jungian psychology, mythology, symbolism and feminist theory as means to construct meaning in and of her life. A compelling, stirring book that will not leave you untouched.

It is an deeply moving peek into the mystery of relationship to the sacred, to that energy that speaks to us through our dreams, heals and guides us. It is known by many names, and speaks a language ancient and yet immediately compelling. I have marked every page, for I found food for thought and inspiration everywhere. It will stir your soul.

A memoir of a courageous woman for courageous women, the writer shares the beginning of her healing journey out of long-standing depression into ever-deepening understanding and self-acceptance as a woman. This moving and thought-provoking dive into dreamwork’s pathway to higher consciousness is told by a gifted feminine guide and talented storyteller.

Join Pearl, the wild daughter of the Alberta Plains, as she bravely travels dark roads to her secret past. In a modern wasteland where sacred symbols have lost their meaning, Pearl recovers her memories as a young child and finds healing and connection to the Divine Mother.

Finally, a book that sparks the Divine Feminine! She brings awareness to the power of intuition, creativity, beauty and synchronicity in our lives. An uplifting and meaningful memoir with an important message – the power of the unconscious.
It is truly a work of love, courage and faith, a labyrinth of healing!
A book to guide us ever upward in the spiral dance of healing. Her powerful, transparent voice sheds light on her courageous journey through dreams that she generously shares with readers. I

As I work through this book, I find myself on a fascinating journey following Pearl down the rabbit hole and back around... I am so happily surprised that although the timeline jumps, and we are literally inside this woman's psyche, it is easy to follow and doesn't confuse the reader with the many layers. This is really hard to do! Bravo!

I encourage anyone who is interested in symbolism, dreams, Jungian psych, depression, healing, feminism, a critical look at the patriarchy in the Catholic Churc
