Our dreams can reveal our highest aspiration, our most secret wish, as well as our hunger for something more. Dreams are the original “altered reality” that are not just phantoms in the night but have meaning originating in both the psyche of Nature and the psyche of persons. Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D.

Dream Tending

Dream tending is an interactive process between the dreamer, the dream, and the dream tender (the therapist). It is not the job of the dream tender or the dreamer to decode a “message” of dream or intellectually interpret its images and symbols. Our job is to bring to life the images of the dream, and thus honor their presence and their source, the collective unconscious that we all share. 

The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul.

C.G. Jung, Founder of Analytic Psychology

Dream tending is one of the richest and most powerful tools that can be used in the psychotherapeutic process. It is the direct voice of psyche and the attendant images that are alive within us. It is our job to listen, to observe, and gain insight and wisdom.
