The workshop will introduce participants to “Dream Tending” a depth psychological approach to dreams. Participants will learn about the “Global Dream Initiative” and how dream symbols are shared by people around the world in what Carl Jung called the collective unconscious. The concept of “anima mundi” the soul of the world we be explored as we consider  dream symbols during our ecologic crisis.   Participants will learn ways to listen more effectively to dreams and dream sharing as well as how to lead a dream group and how to create dream incubation that will improve dream recall.   Jungian ideas about how to do shadow work will be considered as we consider how we will raise our human consciousness as we honor dreams.

  • Participants will learn about dreams from a depth psychology perspective and learn how to do “dream tending.”
  • The workshop will explore how to create a loving, interactive environment in order to welcome dreams and assure they are willing to be known.
  • Participants will learn how to create dream incubation and how to improve dream recall.
  • Participants will learn new skills and strategies on how to create new vital local and global dream communities.
  • We will explore the concept of “anima mundi” and Carl Jung’s collective unconscious and consider emerging dream images at this historic time.  


  • Summarize the concept of “dream tending” as a depth psychological method to honor and explore dreams.
  • Utilize concrete skills to welcome, listen and honor the dream more authentically in order to assure dreams are willing to be known.
  • Create a dream incubation in order to develop greater dream recall.
  • Practice methods for leading a dream group.
