Dear Dream Tending and Deep Imagination community,
The holidays are upon us. The Dream Tending team wishes you and your family a restorative time of joy and connection. In the spirit of the holidays, the Dream Tending team will be taking some time with our loved ones, and so this will be our last Tending Tuesday until the New Year.
If this New Year you are looking for a community of like-minded others to hold you accountable in deepening your personal and professional journey, there is still time to sign up for our Dream Tending Certificate I program starting in January. Dream Tending is an applied approach of working effectively with dreams and imagination. This potent methodology orients around four essential ideas.
1) The Psyche is Multidimensional.
(Skillset: Association, Amplification, Animation)
2) Dreams are Alive and Embodied.
(Skillset: Tending the Living Image)
3) In an Animated World, everything is Dreaming.
(Skillset: Working with the World Unconscious)
4) Dreams and Imagination exist in the Immediacy of Presence.
(Skillset: Dreams as a Life Practice)
The Dream Tending and Deep Imagination Certificate I program offers the skills and tools to access the healing powers of the dreaming psyche and deep imagination. The journey begins with Module One, Tending the Living Image, the heartbeat of the Dream Tending and Deep Imagination approach. We continue in Module Two with an in-depth exploration of nightmares, their purpose, and their promise. That which scares or threatens us in the dreamtime holds special abilities when tended with support and safety. Module Three includes The World’s Dream—Advanced Methods of Animation. In these uncertain times, filled with both destructive and generative impulses, this is a way of listening to the psyche of the world speak through the figures of dreams. Module Four includes Medicines of the Soul—Dream Healing Practices. It is an actual experience in a Healing Sanctuary of Dreams to learn about the healing power of dreams in relation to physical illness.
If this calls to you the time is now. Please get in touch with our Dream Team Program Coordinators at Programs@DreamTending.com to learn more and register today.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
