Founder of Productive Slumber and Her Jaunty Tune, Lael Gold, Ph.D., has provided individual healing coaching for ten years and group instruction to clients in California and New York. A 2001 Mellon Fellow and an award-winning writer and teacher, Lael created and also taught literature, film and writing courses for over 8 years at UC Berkeley where she earned her doctorate in comparative literature in 2004.
"Lael Gold, Ph.D. has a wealth of knowledge in a wide variety of disciplines which she combines with caring intuition and a willingness to research, play and explore. All this is melded into a thoroughly creative, engaging, and insightful course that drew me in completely to both the class and my dream-life. While all this is amazing enough, what make Lael and her class 'out of this world' are both her ability to inspire one's own attention, action, and belief in oneself and her ability to make you laugh spontaneously and fully! Her experiences, both personal and professional, and her skill as a guide over sometimes murky dream terrain give anyone in her presence an adrenalin shot of willingness to discover, explore, nurture, respect, and listen to their inner wisdom. The class materials that she created are gold-nuggets of thought and, at times, very poetic prose that I will return to again and again to keep me centered and grounded in my life's true path. Thank you, Lael, for sharing your deeply honest gifts with us and supporting our relationships with our smartest selves. I wish the class could be an ongoing one."--Roya Arasteh, Pilates Studio Owner, Berkeley, CA
"I went to see Lael originally at the suggestion of a friend. I arrived at my first session with a skeptical but open mindset, as I have always felt dreams were important but not had a way to concretely work with them. Lael’s intuition, intelligence and humor immediately put me at ease. Her amazing knowledge of symbols and historical references gave me so much more to work with in thinking about dreams. She was able to compassionately give guidance on ways to integrate and work with dreams. This truly had a positive effect on my waking life. Things actually changed as a result! Later I decided to enroll in Lael’s Dreams and Dreaming class after being so impressed with the individual work. I loved this class! Not only did I learn many tools for working with dreams and creativity, but I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time."

"Lael Gold's work is vital to anyone who wants to lead a fully productive life because she is uniquely qualified to interpret the language of our dreams. Her extensive knowlege of the humanities and he rgift for the discernment of meaningful patterns and interpretation of symbols, combined with her uncanny intuition and her open heart, make her an exceptional counselor. Her singular gifts have had a profound effect on my life" -- Duncan North, creatior of the Sundance Award-winning film The Tao of Steve
"I can't recommend Lael's dream workshops highly enough. She is such an erudite, passionate, funny and profound respondent, and your own dreams--even small fragments--will sing to you if you let her (and hte other workshop members share them. It's like if psychoanalysis was kind and generous and optimistic. It's also like a really smart, lively literature class where the topic is "finally!!) you!" -
--Jane Glaubman, Poet, New York City
"I feel like my dreams are a resource for me now, as I live my life and make decisions going forward. But most of all, the class was really fun! Monday nights were the highlight of my week. Lael created a safe, supportive, fascinating and really enjoyable environment every week. I was sorry the class had to end."
