ARCHETYPAL DREAMWORK WORKSHOP IN THE BERKSHIRES
Step into the profound teaching of your dreams in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts at The Rowe Center on March 21-23, where you will have the opportunity to witness and participate in String Work, a powerful dream enactment process that helps untie the knots binding us to our own suffering and keeping us from the extraordinary love and support of the divine archetypal realm within.
If you are curious and have never been to a North of Eden Archetypal
Dreamwork retreat, this weekend offering is a great place to begin.

CE CERTIFICATE IN DREAM STUDIES AT SAYBROOK
The CE Dream Studies Certificate is designed to help professionals gain an understanding of important research about dreams and to implement that knowledge in order to accomplish personal and professional goals. Our teaching approach encourages the student to explore personal interests and learn through experience as well as to come to an appreciation of research in the field.
The program consists of three three-credit courses, a three-credit practicum, and a one-credit integrative paper. The three required courses include: Neuropsychology of Dreams and Dreaming (45 CEs); Personal Mythology and Dream Psychology (45 CEs) and Understanding and Appreciating Dreams (45 CEs).

ROBERT MOSS PUBLISHES NEW BOOK
Join Active Dreaming pioneer and bestselling author Robert Moss for an
unforgettable journey that will expand your sense of reality and confirm
that there is life beyond death and in other dimensions of the multiverse.
In his new book, The Boy Who Died and Came Back, Moss describes how he lived
a whole life in another world when he died at age nine in a Melbourne
hospital and how he died and came back again, in another sense, in a crisis
of spiritual emergence during midlife. As he shares his adventures in
walking between the worlds, we begin to understand that all times — past,
future, and parallel — may be accessible NOW.

SLEEP PERFORMANCE FILM WITH JOCELYNE MOREAU
A brief, personal and sensory film/video on the most forgotten part of our life: SLEEP. Sleep experienced from the inner world versus the outside experience. The short film will comprise a variety of interpretations of own dream images, erotic dreams and dreams which have made a lasting impression on me, along with images of myself during sleep, seen from the outside, with the emphasis on external sensations and a remote view of what is happening. The film will last approximately 20 minutes.
In this issue, Hot Off the Press explores the subject of dreams and how we process information. The intention of this column is to publish links to evidence-based scientific articles that are written for a non-research audience in the study of dreams.
