Dear Dream Tending and Imagination Community,
“What if it were possible to access the worlds of your imaginations and bring them to life as never before?”
                                                                       —Dr. Jean Houston, 2022
For this Tending Tuesday series, I had the privilege to interview Dr. Jean Houston and Dr. Stephen Aizenstat on human consciousness. If this dialogue excites you, the conversation will be further explored and expanded upon in the upcoming Summer Conference, Dream Tending for Our Times: Resilience, Emergence, and Empowerment, on July 9 and 10. Register today to hold your spot HERE.
At the Dream Tending headquarters in Santa Barbara, CA, we are buzzing away, excited for this conference where we will: take participants on an engaged, experiential journey through past rare footage of elders in the fields of dreamwork and depth psychology; host our two keynote speakers, Jean Houston and Stephen Aizenstat; do live dreamwork; and have the Mentors of the Academy of Imaginal Arts and Sciences lead smaller seminars deepening into psyche, soma, imagination, and dream.
The real question is—are you ready to join us in exploring the worlds of your imaginations and bring them to life as never before?
I look forward to seeing you there.
Alia Aizenstat, LMFT
Executive Director, Dream Tending

Inside The Curious Mind

This is a quote that resonated with me this week…

“We know that when we bring local consciousness to a higher resonance, in what we might call the cosmic field or the quantum field, we access capacities that until now have seemed more mythic than real.”
― Dr. Jean Houston, 2022
