Healing Sleep and Dreams
Mental health is not just a matter of waking life. Sleep loss, the most prevalent health concern in the U.S. today, has been strongly linked to anxiety, depression, obesity, and illness. Although mental health professionals routinely encounter insomnia in their practices, few are adequately prepared to address it.
Join world-renowned sleep and dream expert Dr. Rubin Naiman for a uniquely informative clinical and consciousness-enhancing experience. This comprehensive program addresses insomnia from a body, mind, and spirit perspective, integrating complementary and alternative medicine, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and Jungian/archetypal approaches. Through engaging presentations, in-depth discussions, and personal practices, participants can expect to gain a rich and practical understanding of sleep and dreams to better help their clientele as well as themselves.
Rubin Naiman, Ph.D., is clinical assistant professor of medicine and the sleep and dream specialist at the University of Arizona's Center for Integrative Medicine, directed by Dr. Andrew Weil. He is a leader in the development of integrative medicine approaches to sleep and dream disorders, integrating conventional sleep science with depth psychological and spiritual perspectives. Dr. Naiman is the author of a number of groundbreaking works on sleep, including Healing Night, Healthy Sleep (with Dr. Weil), The Yoga of Sleep, Hush, and medical textbook chapters, as well as two upcoming books, Seven Weeks to Serene Sleep and DreamLife. Dr. Naiman also blogs for Huffington Post and Psychology Today. His presentations have been described as “brilliant,” “magical,” “truly creative,” and “simply outstanding.” (See www.DrNaiman.com.)
