Dear Dream Tending Community,

Dream Tending  in community is a sacred and transformative experience. There are a few times a year where we come together. This is a deeply personal time where a limited number of us will be working in depth with dream and imagination.

This retreat promises to be an opportunity for us to go deep into issues and challenges we all face. To provide a personal journey where we’ll explore the realms of dreams and imagination together. Through live demonstrations, you will gain insight into connecting with your dreams and Soul Companions. Come explore what Dream Tending has to offer as an avenue for healing and personal growth. I look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 Santa Barbara Dream Tending Workshop and sharing the magic of Dream Tending.

If you are interested in joining us and learning more about what Dream Tending has to offer as an avenue for healing and personal growth, please reach out to our Executive Director, Bree Beltran at or call (805) 770-0195.

I look forward to seeing you there!
