Dreaming is a medium for human development, not simply through dream interpretation, but also through providing a window into a complex, multi-dimensional reality. Learning objectives include exploring with the audience how dreaming is an avenue to
(1) metaphysical encounters;
(2) transpersonal awakening;
(3) sacred knowledge;
(4) broadening and reshaping one’s worldview; and
(5) psychological/spiritual transformation.
