Couples DreamTending sessions are offered with the option of couples coming into my studio, located in Santa Clarita, CA, or by telephone conference calls. Skype sessions can also be arranged.
In The Dream and the Underworld, James Hillman writes:
“We sense that dreams mean well for us, back us up and urge us on, understand us more deeply than we understand ourselves, expand our sensuousness and spirit, continually make up new things to give us—and this feeling of being loved by the images permeates the analytical relationship. Let us call it imaginal love, a love based wholly on relationship with images and through images, a love showing in the imaginative response of the partners to the imagination in the dreams. Is this Platonic love? It is like the love of an old man, the usual personal content of love voided by coming death, yet still intense, playful, and tenderly, carefully close.”
Because of this “imaginal love,” tending dreams is a very intimate art and practice. As dreamers discover this very intimate sense of being —the “shared imagination” of the dreamtime—they naturally want to share it with others. Thus, the one question I am asked all the time is, “Do you do this work with couples?” The answer is yes!
Couples sessions are 1 ½ hours long—due to the intensity of dream material.
Couples are encouraged to dedicate themselves, at least in the beginning of our work together, to establishing a consistent rhythm of meeting with me once a week or once every other week.
Couples DreamTending services are provided on a sliding-scale. If you are interested in learning more about tending dreams with your partner, or you’re interested in scheduling an introductory session, please . . .
Dreamers wishing to work privately discover that DreamTending emulates the dreamtime itself and is therefore safe, contained, loving, generously-spirited, creative, and wholly generative.
