“For many centuries human beings have explored the
mysteries and meanings of dreams, most often imagining
ourselves as center and source of the dream. When we listen
to dreams in a different way – when we tend to their living
presence, something quite extraordinary happens. Dreams
come alive and tell their stories. Our perception changes, our
intuition opens, and we hear and learn from the timeless
intelligence of Nature as well as our own deeper sense of well
– Stephen Aizenstat

In this introductory seminar, Dr. Stephen Aizenstat offers both traditional and emerging methods of dream work that explore common dream themes, nightmares, archetypal images, and the recurring dream.

DreamTending is a method of working with dreams that considers dream images as “living
images.” It makes the particularity and presence of these images available to the dreamer. The wisdom of ancestral callings, the instinctual knowledge of animal visitations, the musings of the soul are attended to from a psyche-centered, rather than person-centered, perspective. The “intelligence” of the dream is listened to from the inside out.

To “tend” a dream is not just to interpret or analyze it. The figures and landscapes of dreams are experienced as alive and moving about with a certain degree of autonomy. In a very practical and accessible way, the craft of DreamTending offers the possibility of listening deeply to the voices of the dream images themselves as they come forward to offer their insights and perspectives.

DreamTending appreciates that dreams carry an inner knowing, an innate sensibility, and an element of potency that affords each of us the capacity to open to the depths of our own experience. When we tend a dream, images come “awake,” imagination is animated, and we participate in life more fully rooted in the way of the dream.

DreamTending is based on four essential concepts:

  • The dreaming psyche is multidimensional
  • Dreams are alive
  • Everything dreams
  • Dreams happen now
