Dr. Stephen Aizenstat invites you into the world of Dream Tending, a unique approach to dreamwork. Through story and example, Dr. Aizenstat shares Dream Tending methods that feature a process of discovery in which dreamers become "naturalists" of the psyche, observing the activity of the images in the unfolding dreamscape. He will offer tools and techniques to assist dreamers in working with their own dreams or those of others, and guide them in the practice of Dream Tending. Participants will learn skills to remember dreams, understand common dream themes, work with nightmares, and work with dreams in conjunction to physical illness.
STEPHEN AIZENSTATStephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., has devoted his life to understanding the profound wisdom and healing power that exists within each of us. Through our dreams and imagination, we access limitless creativity, innovation, improved relationships, and ultimately our human potential.
Professor Aizenstat’s Dream Tending methodologies have helped thousands of people to unlock their deep imagination, increase intellectual and emotional bandwidth and to realize personal and professional goals. He asks us to experiment with a worldview that playfully and soulfully sees the world as alive and always dreaming…in an attitude of wonderment, curiosity and presence. This inquiry was a driving force in Dr. Aizenstat’s creation of Pacifica Graduate Institute, a center for the study of the human experience through depth psychology, mythology, and the humanities.
Professor Aizenstat has served as an organizational consultant to leading Tech Companies, Hollywood films, community and educational institutions, and he has lectured extensively on the subject of dreams, the deep imagination, new technologies, and organizational development. He is affiliated with the Earth Charter International project through the United Nations, where he has spoken. Professor Aizenstat has been mentored by and collaborated with many notable masters in the field including Joseph Campbell, James Hillman, Marion Woodman and Robert Johnson. He has conducted sold-out Dream Tending seminars, workshops and “pop-up” events in the U.S. Asia and Europe.
