"When we interact with these imaginal presentations of the night/day, we hear the myth, the dream that is moving through our life. Implicating us in all aspects of our engagements with family, friends, and our work, dreams bring inspiration, as well as insight. Dream Tending teaches ways of evolving a sustained relationship with imagination and the figures/landscapes of psyche. Cultivating these engagements and learning to interact with regard creates an on-going living relationship with the figures of soul." - Dr. Stephen Aizenstat

Say, "Tonight I'm going to remember my dreams."
Morning: Keep a Dream journal bedside. Write details as soon as you awaken. Get a sense of the dream.
Bring the dream into awareness. Dreams are like friends. Get involved.
Notice what dream has to offer.
Acknowledge the dream. What's the context? Place it in circumstances of life.
Find a pun or metaphor.
Tend dreams from the inside out. Go beyond and explore. Find the myth.
