We are a small team that bears overall responsibility for managing this organization. We love helping individuals, families & our communities, and we do it with a passion.
Rachel Czifra Perry
Chairperson of the Board of Directors
As co-founder of CTF. Rachel launched the Dream Work For Prisoner initiative in 2018. Within the first two year she listened to hundreds of dreams and had a steady membership of 70 inmates from 11 jails in Ontario & Nova Scotia.
She currently runs a crisis phone line into Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Center and continues supporting transformation with former prisoners who’ve been released.
Rachel runs a social media platform called Rachel Interprets Dreamz and can be found on TikTok, YouTube, Facebook & Instagram. She continues interpreting dreams without charge for people who post their dreams on the platform.
She’s developing a training class & workshops for training others to interpret their own dreams and use them for transformation in their life.
Richard Hastings has been doing dream work since 1989 including authoring the book, Dreams for Peace. He has traveled to the U.S., Canada, South America, and South East Asia doing dream meetings and personal change work. His approach is solution oriented so that the participant is left not only with an analysis of the meaning of the dream, but also a solution. He has listened to several thousand dreams since he began.
He is currently living in Vancouver, Canada. Richard welcomes inquiries about dreams without charge by writing to him. He also has a counseling service online that you can see on the counseling page of his website http://www.dreamsforpeace.org.
Richard runs community dream meeting sessions and workshops on transformation.

Treasurer & Ambassador
Kayla brings enthusiasm, skill and expertise to her role as Treasurer and Ambassador. She joined CTF in 2019 when she was nominated as a member of the first Board of Directors. Her enthusiasm for social change makes her an amazing advocate for transformation in the justice system. At times she has volunteered on the phone line, has launched fundraising and book drives. Her fundraising initiatives through social media and personal initiatives has raised more than $1000. Her book drive gathered 500+ books for a women’s shelter. Her care package for a newly released inmate and his infant baby included more than $300 worth of food, diapers, formula, etc. These efforts have been instrumental in moving our programming forward in its first year as a registered nonprofit.
Kayla’s commitment to transformation stems from her personal life experience of overcoming significant hardships in childhood & teen years. By facing fears, she found tremendous Courage. By facing the shadows, she found a powerful Inner Light. By breaking free of the metaphoric chains that bound her, she found a positive vision of freedom for herself and her two children.
She is French-speaking Metis and walks a spiritual path aspiring to bring out the best in those around her. The time & energy she gives to CTF and its clients is an invaluable gift which is deeply appreciated by the Board.
