Program Description

Spring Dream Tending and Imagination Workshop

omething vital is happening this spring! Stephen Aizenstat will offer his new Spring Dream Tending and Imagination workshop on March 27 & March 28 , 2021. He will bring particular emphasis to the “generative” qualities of dreams. Dreams prepare us for what is to come. And, in times of uncertainty and challenge, this support and guidance is invaluable.

This year, the program will be online, and will be more interactive than ever. It will include 5-10-minute breath and movement exercises throughout the time together. Dr. Aizenstat will convey the primary underpinnings of his approach to working with dreams. And, he will provide you with a “tool kit” describing the methods you will need to tend your personal dreams as well as those of others. Common dream themes like Flying, Falling, the Intruder, Finding Valuables, Water, Animals, Death, Birth, Journey and many others will be explored and explained.

Dr. Aizenstat will show you how to tap into the “innate intelligence” of your dreams. He will demonstrate his approach by working with dreams of participants. He will then describe what tools he used and how these methods were utilized. You will then work in breakout sessions to personalize the teachings.

Enroll today and we will email you a free Dream Tending toolkit so you can get started. (The document will offer you some easy to use tools to begin your work with the Dream Tending approach).
