Earth Calling: Dreaming Our Way Into Sanity….Cultural Perspectives on Dreaming

Our collective unconscious is a living storehouse of tribal memories. Dreams tap into this rich reservoir to promote our evolution as a species. We are being called now to reconnect to our roots and re-view our dreams through a broader, deeper cultural lens. Audience participation and dream images welcome!

Living Beyond the Five Senses: Unraveling the Mystery of Dreams-Science or Spirituality?

In this presentation Dr. DeCicco will discuss how research and spirituality each explain the nature of dreaming to some extent, and how they actively interact with each other.  Dr. DeCicco will bring specific examples of dreams from each paradigm and introduce a new model attempting to explain the nature of dreaming.
