A Workshop with Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., at Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Ladera Lane Campus
Participants in this three-day workshop will build practical skills grounded in traditional and emerging methods of dreamwork. During the workshop, participants will:
- Learn how to remember dreams and examine reoccurring dream themes
- Practice dream tending skills with nightmares
- Explore the multiple dimensions of psyche—the personal, collective, and world unconscious
- Animate dream images and form relationships with figures in dreams
- Discover how living images impact and inform our moods, behaviors, and perceptions
- Learn how dreams can support and improve physical and psychological health
Participants will meet daily in four-person Dream Kivas to practice their dream tending skills. During these sessions, each member of the group will have the opportunity to work with their own dreams.
Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., is the Chancellor and Founding President of Pacifica Graduate Institute. He is a professor of depth psychology, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a credentialed public schools teacher and counselor. Dr. Aizenstat has explored the potential of dreams through depth psychology and his own research for more than 35 years. His Dream Tending methodologies extend traditional dreamwork to the vision of an animated world where the living images in dream are experienced as embodied and originating in the psyche of Nature as well as that of persons. His book, Dream Tending, describes new applications of dreamwork in relation to health and healing, nightmares, the World’s Dream, relationships, and the creative process.
