Dear Dream Tending Community,
Today marks a milestone in the Dream Tending Community. As I write this, the Mentors of the Academy of Dream Tending are graduating from their final course. I want to name and honor this grand accomplishment – of hearing the call, learning the craft of working with dreams and deep imagination, completing certificates I, II, and III, pursuing the Mentors of the Academy of Dream Tending program and many becoming teaching assistants of Dream Tending.
Each mentor offers a different expertise, different vocational training, and background that orients their craft of how they practice and teach Dream Tending. The diversity and depth they offer to our community are profound. It is with gratitude, pride, and so much enthusiasm I name the graduates of the Mentors of the Academy of Dream Tending:
