Rubin Naiman • Thursday All Day
LOCATION: SUITE 200E
While we tend to think of night dreaming and daytime waking states as mutually exclusive, both are expressions of the same consciousness. In fact, dreaming doesn’t just happen during nightly REM periods—it takes place throughout the day.
If tapped into, this everyday dream energy offers a wondrous and accessible form of perception that reveals the sacredness behind all things.
You’ll leave this workshop with an expanded sense of self and the richness of life, as well as new skills for ameliorating depression and anxiety in your clients’ lives. We’ll explore:
- The six dimensions of night dreaming, integrating the emerging science of REM sleep with ancient spiritual traditions of dreamwork
- How to use journaling, physical movement, and other practical and playful exercises to experience the continuity between waking and dreaming
- The range of different dream states, such as waking dreams, creative dreaming, lucid dreaming, and healing dreams
