THE DREAM INSTITUTE is an experimental cultural
center founded in 2003. It has come into being during this time
known as the shift or the great turning.
Dreams are a natural resource, democratically
available to all, yet vastly underutilized today. Most cultures
throughout history have called upon dreams for information and
guidance. They are more relevant than ever at this time of
upheaval and transition. Our mission is to offer program
participants a soulful experience and to restore dreams, as an
ancient wisdom source, to a place of respect in contemporary
WE OFFER weekend workshops, daylong seminars, evening salons, film series,
art exhibits, retreats, and dream-based
performances. We are also the West Coast center for Culture Dreaming.
Programs and events are open to the public; continuing education
seminars are for professionals in the healing arts. We do not
advocate any single philosophical, psychological, spiritual,
religious viewpoint toward dreams or personal growth. Generally, our programs are in the salon model, which allows for open discussion where Psyche can be present.
“I have found the Institute an extraordinarily supportive environment for creative work and research about dreams, dreaming, and the uses of dreams in other cultures as well as our own. It is a tribute to you and the colleagues who participate with you in creating and sustaining the Institute that such fine work can be done. The programs you support are excellent, the audiences who attend your programs are sophisticated and warm, and the environment a very pleasant one for the presenter. I look forward to future work with you and The Dream Institute.”

How do you know, when you die, if your life has been successful? From the dreams.
