with a focus on intuition, clairvoyance and empathic resonance. In this course we will explore the multi-dimensionality of image and psyche, seeing how image reflects and informs us on the personal, interpersonal, societal, and world-dream levels of reality.
We will also learn how to depower unpleasant dreams and build alliances with the most powerful dream-allies. Then we will experiment with Dream Healing and making "medicines of the soul." Throughout, we will practice the four-stage process of Association, Amplification, Animation and Embodiment. Topics such as shadow work, the value of depth practices within the context of pursuing one's spiritual path, the relationship between psychic images and dream images, sleep paralysis, etc. will add to our lively discussions.
Students will experience the profound mirroring between inner and outer nature, dive deep into the collective unconsciousness, and cultivate the art of "not knowing." Dream Tending is a skill that improves presence with clients and loved ones: ideal for therapists, intuitive readers, healers and parents.
In between class sessions, students will explore at their own pace. They will have opportunities to meet with partners via phone, in person (depending on where you live), or Skype and to practice techniques, go on dream-nature walks, and share experiences on the private group page.

In this highly interactive workshop webinar experience we will practice the intuitive and Shamanic Art of Dream Tending, a process of hosting the living images of night-time and waking dreams. Techniques that will enhance lucidity in dreams will be introduced, and you will learn how to bring dreams into daily living so as to become lucid in the waking "Dream Time." This approach to Dream Tending builds upon a method originally developed by Dr. Stephen Aizenstat, integrating indigenous wisdom from around the world with depth psychologies
