(SAN FRANCISCO) -- If you're not sleeping well, you're probably not dreaming much either. Would you like to discover the link between nourishing sleep and actively remembering and using your dreams for enhanced well-being? Sleep and dream expert Dr. Rubin Naiman discusses the latest science with CIIS Professor Meg Jordan at a CIIS Public Program workshop held on Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3, 2018 in San Francisco.  The theme for this full CIIS workshop is introduced in a Friday lecture, open to the public on June 1, 2018, 7-9 pm at 1453 Mission, San Francisco.   

    Inadequate sleep is associated with obesity, chronic disease and depression. The CDC reports that over 40 million Americans are chronically sleep deprived, accounting for needless accidents, injury, absenteeism, and a loss of vitality and productivity.  But what happens when you aren't dreaming enough? Come to this workshop and find out how to sleep better,  and perchance to dream (thanks, Will) for a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Well-being is not just a matter of waking life. Obtaining deep and refreshing sleep and dreams has, however, become a challenge for too many of us. Ultimately, we don't get sleep because we don't get sleep. Our understanding of sleep and dreams has been distorted by the relentless glare of modern waking life.

This workshop provides natural and practical strategies for those seeking more restful nights or treating sleep issues in others. Dr. Naiman presents a novel, mindful approach to healing sleep and dream deprivation by integrating evidence-based sleep science with time honored spiritual practices for recovering our healthy nights.
