Designed to help participants find greater purpose and peace in life, it will appeal to anyone new to dreamwork, as well as experienced dreamers. It’s taught with the belief that we all have the innate ability to understand our dreams. This workshop is about dreaming, but also about life–using dreams to help us live wisely and well. We dream at least five times every night and by the end of our lives, we’ve spent five to seven entire years dreaming. The purpose of dreams is to help us work through personal issues or karma, and to assist us in carrying out our unique destiny or dharma. Through dreams we can achieve greater awareness, clarity and balance. Each dream is nightly therapy helping us work through problems, rehearse difficult situations, and face our worst fears. We all have prophetic dreams preparing us for future events. Dreams give us the confidence to face challenges, and are the source of true genius, creativity, and healing. As sacred scripts they lead us toward our core of personal greatness. By following their guidance, the world can become kinder and gentler–a place of great respect, compassion, and wisdom.

History of Dreams takes us back to Biblical times showing how the birth of Jesus was orchestrated through dreams. In the Christian Bible there are over 70 accounts of dreams and visions that shaped the course of history. We examine the sacredness of dreams in ancient Egypt and Greece, where people spent the night in Dream Incubation Temples to receive answers to important questions or to receive healings. Since dreams are vital to all cultures we look at their role in Islam, the Jewish Talmud, Native Spirituality, and the Senoi of Pacific Malaysia, a spiritually advanced community due to their emphasis on understanding dreams. We examine the three factors that led to dream’s fall from grace: St. Jerome’s mistranslation of the Bible, the emergence and popularity of the printing press, and the Age of Reason, rational and scientific thought.
The Sleep Process and Stages of Sleep is a fascinating look at exactly what happens to our body, mind and spirit while we sleep.
