Festival of Dreams

 

Thirty Minute Private Dream Consultation Included!

Do you have a dream you’ve been wondering about?  Bring it to the Festival and explore it during your private thirty minute session.  You can schedule your session during the event or have it later at your leisure in what we call a “Rain Check”.

You and your dreams will always be treated with the utmost respect, dignity and confidentiality.  We all subscribe to the IASD Statement of Ethics and Confidentiality which states that YOU are the final authority on your dreams and have the choice to share or not share as you see fit.

We’ve assembled a team of experienced dreamworkers from the Santa Cruz area and beyond.  Browse among the practitioners below to see who you might like to sign up with at the Festival, and then get there early to get your first choice!

I have worked with Jeremy Taylor since the early 1990s, when I first met him at the GTU in Berkeley and am MIPD certified.  Since that time I have enhanced my dream work by participating in courses by Robert Moss, various teachers at the Haden Institute and the anthropologist Angeles Arrien. I believe the right way to work a dream is what works for an individual and incorporate teachings from all of these insightful people.
