The 2024 Santa Barbara Dream Tending workshop is a limited-enrollment intensive experiential event that takes place over three days at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California. The workshop explores dream theory and methodology through experiential avenues.
Dr. Stephen Aizenstat will showcase unique examples of Dream Tending practice as he works with one of each participant’s dreams. He will encourage participants’ engagement through association, amplification, and animation. Clinical perspectives will be included when appropriate. Dr. Aizenstat will also guide participants as they work independently, with a dyad partner, and in groups. The striking landscape of Pacifica Graduate Institute plays its own part, bringing the psyche of nature into the work. A unique ritual created by the group is presented at the conclusion of the retreat.
