Craft the New Story of Your Business for the Year Ahead

What is Dreaming in the Dark?

Dreaming in the Dark is a self-guided, at-home retreat designed to help you feel into the depths of your work . . . to reaffirm your most vital intentions . . . to say goodbye to old stories that entangle you in their thickets. Above all, it was designed to give you time to dream and dance and shape a new story for your life and your business for the year ahead.

How Dreaming In the Dark Works

The entire program is available for immediate download the minute you complete your registration.

Work at Your Own Pace

While ideally you’ll give yourself the gift of setting aside two luxurious back-to-back days to complete this retreat, you can choose to do it in a way that works best for you.

Learn in Your Favorite Way

Whether you’d like to listen to the entire program on audio, you’d prefer to read it on your tablet, or you’d like to print out a pdf and keep it close at hand, we’ve got you covered. This program is mobile and tablet friendly and can be accessed from your home, office or on the go.

Review and Redo As Often As You Like

The materials, which include mp3 audios, a digital workbook, rich meditations, profoundly playful explorations, heart-opening questions and story-weaving experiences are yours to keep for life.

The Dreaming In the Dark Journey

Dreaming in the Dark is a journey that begins at the intersection of two paths — the one that winds through the year just past, and the one that leads to the year ahead, still shrouded in mists, waiting for you to explore and claim it.

This is a journey you can undertake at any time. A private, two-day retreat, just for you.

The Path Behind You

You’ll be guided through a series of experiences to revisit the year that’s coming to a close. You’ll celebrate your successes, grieve your losses, and transform patterns that no longer serve you. You’ll participate in a ritual to complete the year’s cycle so you can meet the year ahead with an untrammelled, receptive heart.

The Path Before You

Through guided meditations and energy alchemy practices, you’ll open a portal into the universal field of inspired ideas, creative vision, and vibrant new stories eager to enter your world.

You’ll craft a resonant new story for yourself and your business, to guide and shape the year ahead. You’ll anchor your business’s new story with clear intention, and do the inner work of soul alignment and congruency. Finally, you’ll seal your business’s future with a powerful alchemical ritual to activate its full potential.

The Retreat

Create a sacred space for your retreat in your own home or studio. Candles. Fragrant flowers. Soft, downy pillows. A red blanket to wrap around you. A blue mug, a steaming pot of green tea.

Or gift yourself a magical getaway — a cabin on a lake, a cottage in the woods, a seaside bungalow — for your adventure into the Land of Story. Birdsong, tall trees, waves lapping the shore. Silver moonlight. Midnight dreams.

Just you, your journal, your creative heart. Paints, colored pens, drawing paper. The magic of story. Your Business Deva’s hand in yours, guiding you.

Together, you’ll walk back along the paths your business has travelled over the past twelve months. You’ll make peace with all that’s transpired. And you’ll play with enchanting new possibilities for your business’s future.

Topics We’ll Cover

  • How to release that which no longer supports you and your business — outworn patterns, limiting beliefs, inefficient systems, even products and services that need to be retired or reinvented.

  • How to communicate and collaborate with your Business Deva and other subtle energy beings to receive specific guidance for your business.
  • Storytelling magic to help you craft a new story for yourself and your business — a story that emerges from your own deepest desires. A story of prosperity, ease, service, and joy!
Hiro Boga

“This soulful journey was one of the best investments I have made for my business! When I did Dreaming in the Dark I was feeling heavy about my business, having some losses and challenges along the way. This program called to me because I knew deep down I had to rewrite the story and heal. What surprised me was how much more good there was, than I could see… Meeting my Business Deva was the best part. She was big, powerful and had so much to share with me. A year later my business has grown with such synergy, and I made more income too!”

“Sweet Hiro, Thank you so much for teaching Dreaming in the Dark. You helped me discover areas of joy around my business, pockets of sunshine that I hadn’t noticed before, because I was paying so much attention to the scary parts. This class helped me claim my role as the playful tour guide of the UnGuilt Trip class for Moms, which I now lead locally here in Ithaca, while I work on offering it as an online class… I am so grateful for this. I have no doubt that you will see me again in your future classes.”

“Participating in Hiro’s Dreaming in the Dark program felt as though I’d entered the beauty and resonance of an Old Growth Forest…with a friend…who knew how to be present, yet quiet and who likely brought marshmallows for roasting later on. It was deeply nurturing, practical, fruitful and playful all at once. Thank you, Hiro!”

How This Came About

Like all of the programs I offer, Dreaming In The Dark had its beginnings in my own inner explorations, decades of research in the realms of conscious creation, story making, and energy alchemy, and more than 35 years of teaching and working with thousands of students and clients to help them shape lives and business they love.

For many years now, I’ve set aside a weekend each November to commune deeply with my own soul and the soul of my business, to craft the evolving ecology of my business for the coming year. I celebrate the year just past, with the Deva of my business. And I perform a powerful ritual of completion to release anything that no longer belongs in the world of my business.

Cleansed, spent, as my head rests on my pillow that night, I invoke the powers of wholeness to meet and accompany me on a dream journey through the story of my business during the year ahead. The night is starry with dreaming, as the future of my business swims into view. I awake the next morning feeling clear and inspired, with the outline of my business’s new story rising on the horizon.

I created Dreaming in the Dark for all of you who are artists at heart. For you who long to dream your world into being, and who have the courage and devotion to do the work to make it happen.

For you who are exhausted by the daily struggle in the trenches of your business, for you who may have given up on dreaming — I created this retreat to help you re-enter the enchanted lands of your imagination. For you whose hearts ache because your dreams never seem to materialize, I created this retreat to offer you a structure within which your dreams can take shape and form in your world.

I’ve taught this program for many years as a live retreat. Now, I offer it to you to work with at home, in your own beautiful timing.

“Sweet Hiro,

I re-listen to your class recordings about once a month now. This helps me get back in touch with my trust and confidence, like magic potions which allow me to boldly and gently go where I hadn’t dared to go before. I am so grateful for this. I have no doubt that you will see me again in your future classes.”

“When I came across Hiro’s website I was fascinated! Then I discovered Dreaming in the Dark and I knew that this was calling me so strongly. I absolutely wanted to be a part of it. Honestly it was very intense for me. So much energy and power and inner shifts, that I needed to take breaks and breaths. I was so delighted when I was able to share my experiences on the live call with Hiro. I was blown away by her energy and her voice. This soft voice and this absolute power at the same time.

All of this has shifted me already in so many ways. Hiro’s retreat was one of the most intense and powerful I have ever taken. I still work with the material and I am gaining new insights daily.

This is business from the inside out. This is pure sustainability, receptivity and nourishment. Thank you, Hiro, for opening my eyes.”

“Hiro’s work is a constant reminder of all the inner resources available to me. She has given me a way to feel supported by the unseen forces at play in my life. Working with Hiro has not only transformed my business, it has radically transformed the way I approach all my relationships — beginning with my relationships with money, time, and with myself. During my 15 years of self-development I have never experienced wholeness in such a deep and practical way.

The Dreaming in the Dark retreat was so rich. It taught me how to map out my inner journey first, so that the journey with my business is full of clarity and alignment with my desires.

I’m beyond grateful for Hiro, her gentleness, and her unique alchemy. She is the real deal.”

“I’m in the process of rebuilding my business after a serious illness. As my bones heal and knit so am I mending and minding my emotional, mental and spiritual worlds. I’m clear I’m not going to be able to return to the practices that I engaged in previously…and so I wanted to engage it all differently. I’ve also been finding it challenging to practice visioning when life has altered so drastically and there is so much unknown. I love doing the work of visioning and really wanted to use Dreaming in the Dark as a way to show up and continue that practice – even though I didn’t know what would happen. I was also excited about getting to know my Business Deva – a concept I had never heard before now. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed getting to know my Business Deva. I wasn’t expecting to discover a rich and powerful presence that would provide strength and support in this time of unknowns.

In participating in Dreaming in the Dark there were two major transformational moments for me: The first was when I was doing the meditations with the body and with the objects around me and you led me to experience their love and pleasure IN ME. That moved things nicely toward feeling awake and supported. And then when I realized that I had a partner in my Business Deva – that I could share and receive in an interactive, collaborative relationship. Powerful.

There are so many good things that are coming to life in the new garden of my business. I loved the meditations, relationships with the cosmos, earth and Business Deva, as well as mapping what’s here now, what was, and what may become. I examined my business with a level of detail I’ve never experienced before. Hiro guides you to enter into the world of your own making, reflect on what has passed, what’s here now and what is yet to come with the aid of resources that were previously hidden from you in the form of Devas and Soul Qualities that are all around you and that delight and support you at every turn.”

“‘Dreaming in the Dark’ is one of the most powerful online retreats I have participated in. With Hiro’s guidance, through her voice, her questions, her energy, and her loving intelligence, I was encouraged to go on a deep inner journey.

Throughout our 2 days together, I was conscious of how rarely we are able to find such a sacred, deeply reflective, and supportive space. Instead of taking a few minutes whenever I can find them, to work with the questions and engage in the reflections that Hiro offered us, I was able to slow down and give this process my complete attention for two full days. What a radical difference. I discovered new possibilities for my work, new inspiration and confidence in where my vision is taking me. And I was able to articulate concrete and specific ways to ground what emerged in very practical steps that I will take over the next 12 months.

Hiro offered us a large body of material to work with. I’m grateful for her generosity, and will be going back over all of it in the weeks to come.”

“The Heart of Support Deep Dive came at the perfect time in my life. Hiro’s beautifully crafted day allowed for inspiration, reflection and the experience of support. That taste of support in the moment opened me to the possibility of finding it in other ways beyond the Deep Dive, too. A day spent with Hiro (and her lovely tribe) is a very good day indeed.”

“I’m usually the kind of person who loves and embraces change, but due to some health challenges this year, I found myself struggling with doubt and fear. I wanted to shift that fear into hope and confidence that even if the structure of my business changes, I’d still be making a difference. I decided to try Dreaming in the Dark with Hiro and partner with the soul of my business to face the coming year with confidence and joy. I was surprised how hard it was to look back over the last year. I was filled with regret and sorrow over missed opportunities and personal failures. I knew in my mind that I had done the best I could, but my heart hurt at the changes I had to make.

The biggest transformation I experienced was the release of sorrow — I discovered so much that was good in my work during this last year. My personal and spiritual values were lived out in every area of my business and my clients benefitted because of it. The exercise where we mapped out the country of our business helped me to see this so clearly. I fell in love with my work all over again and now see how my smaller boutique business can make a difference in people’s lives and in the world. I’m excited about the coming year and I’m clear on the vision and values that will drive the activity.

Mapping the country of my business shifted my emotions and helped me see the possibilities coming up. I intend to use the maps I created as the center of my strategic planning process this coming month, ensuring every activity is closely aligned with my core values. Dreaming in the Dark helped me let go of the past and prepare myself for an incredible year.”

“The wonderful SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) told me about Hiro. I had ventured into online programs almost two years ago, and life and health had thrown a few curves. I wanted to continue to move forward and bring more ease and flow into my work and programs. I felt overwhelmed and stuck in spinning energy that kept me from moving forward with the focus and inspiration I wanted to feel.

My pattern was to go after every shiny object and keep myself stuck with indecision and fear. I was hopeful when I heard about Hiro and thrilled when I listened to one of her audios. I could tell that her wisdom, energy and gifts were just the right next step for me. She exceeded all my expectations with her presence, wisdom, heart and loving guidance.

In the middle of the weekend, I could feel a shift happening. I was able to look at all of the old stories and limiting beliefs I was carrying – with a much deeper perspective than I’d ever seen them before.

There were too many transformative moments to mention, but when Hiro sent me the poem on Icarus, in response to my fear of flying too high, I finally felt free to soar. Each person she mentored on the calls reflected as aspect of myself, so the transformations kept coming.

It’s only been ONE week after the retreat, and I am moving forward in my business with a new clarity, energy and focus. I feel like I had been a little girl hiding in the curtains of the stage, afraid to come out of hiding.

Now I feel supported by my future self and all the Devas who are encouraging me to just be and have fun! I’m looking forward to working and connecting with much more joy!

I’m most excited about launching my new website and my Compassionate Mediation Training Program, and finally manifesting all the books, workshops, products and programs I have begun over a lifetime of writing, and offering therapy and mediation.

One of the best techniques I learned was to project the future year by looking at it from the end backwards. Once I looked at the following year from the vantage point of December 31, 2015, the steps I need to take to make it all happen seemed to fall into place. All of her writings, meditations, questions, and coaching are amazing!

The experience with Hiro is a priceless gift you need to give yourself and your business. She is a generous and talented coach and a rare and intuitive being of Light.

Thanks, Hiro – for everything. I’ll be back! Xoxo”

“I decided to explore Dreaming in the Dark because I wanted to dream into the next year of my business. I was exploring how to synthesize my work supporting others’ creativity with my own creative needs, to discover a greater balance between them. I wanted to understand how to practice better boundaries with students and to create systems in my business that would support that! Dreaming in the Dark was intense and it required me to go deeply into the details. It required a commitment to keeping on going with it, to trust the process. Writing the calendars for the year behind and the year ahead were both powerful as it gave me a chance to recognize the shape of my business. I could then juxtapose that with my own creative process and get a sense of the flow and my needs for focus and self-care. When I look ahead to what’s next, I’m excited about the flexibility I can create in my business and the possibilities I hadn’t considered before. The relationship with my Business Deva is also exciting. I look forward to seeing how it evolves. Hiro helped me to take stronger ownership of my business process and, while a little terrifying, it’s also very exciting.”
