DreamStar Institutetm offers training in an innovative and highly effective approach to dream work based on co-creative dream theory—the idea that dreams are co-created through the interaction between th dreamer and the dream content.

Co-creative dream theory views the dream—whether lucid or nonlucid—as an unfolding relational process, rather than only a static set of images or symbols to be analyzed.

Because of its emphasis on dreamer choice and responsibility, the DreamStar dreamwork approach—called The FiveStar Method—is wholly congruent with the goals of life coaching, spiritual mentoring, and contemporary psychotherapy. It is fairly easy to learn and highly adaptable to one-on-one and group settings.

There are several ways to benefit from the services of DreamStar Institute:

  • You can join the new DreamStar Community.
  • You can participate in online dream groups.
  • You can peruse a sampling of resources on our Free Downloads page.
  • You can peruse dozens of articles included here.
  • You can take courses in dreamwork, soon to be available on Voomly.com.
  • You can have individual dream consultation sessions with Scott or Kim via videoconferencing.
  • You can obtain mentoring in dream analysis via one-on-one sessions, focusing on the analysis of client dreams, and/or your own dreams, using the FSM.
