I received my B.S. in psychology from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College in Indiana, my M.A. in psychology from Goddard College in Vermont and my Ph.D. in Humanities: Transformative Learning and Change (TLC) from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA. I worked in business management while completing my education, before moving on to work as a Research Associate for a Sleep Disorders Center and The Indiana Sleep Wake Research Institute. 9 years ago, dreamwork became part of my profession. I am also an adjunct instructor for local universities.
The focus of my dreamwork is twofold. One is the relationship between dreams and spiritual life. I have also joined the ranks of those who are working to bridge the gap between the science of dreams and the psychology of dreams and between quantitative and qualitative dream research.
It is important to me how people are treated. There has been a tremendous loss of civility in our society over the last 40 years that contributes to disharmony, violence, and crime. Transformative change is desperately needed and I believe that dreamwork can help us return to a more civil and respectful society. I think dreamers should be setting an example for the world of the good that comes from dreams, not just of the positive impact it can have on individuals, but also of the positive impact that dreamwork can have on the world.
One of my favorite quotes is related to this...Dont hit people...Say youre sorry when you hurt somebody...When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
