Dreams serve as windows and mirrors into our Souls. Ancient cultures including the Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks, Celts and Romans as well as native Peoples around the Planet combined their dreaming with their stays at springs, wells and spas to immerse themselves in the fantastic art.
Dreams can be a threshold and doorway into the imagination and in turn can increase abilities to look deeper into personal, social, cultural and spiritual realms of wellness and wholeness.

ABOUT J. PAUL
J. Paul DeVierville Ph.D., M.S.S.W., a Jungian psychotherapist and well-known spa historian, facilitates this exploration that can help to reveal not only how a person’s Dreams and how they relate to oneself, but also how, when and where Dreams connect to the wider-world and planet.
This method of exploration: “Eco-Social-Psi- Cultural-Dreaming-Field” is experienced when individuals as well as groups share Dreaming and observe images and discover themes related not only to themselves but also the global domains of culture, civilization and cosmos.
