Experiential Dreamwork with Katherine Bell

I am Katherine Bell. I am a Dream Coach and the founder of Experiential Dreamwork. I have facilitated Dream Groups in Santa Cruz for over 25 years and have been a Dream Coach for 10. I periodically host Dream Embodiment Retreats in the Santa Cruz area.  I am also host and creator of the Festival of Dreams Santa Cruz: an event offering workshops and presentations in celebration of all things Dream. The Festival has happened three times so far and last year was held at the Museum of Art and History and attracted 100 people from around California and from as far away as Brazil.  I am deeply involved with the International Association for the Study of Dreams. I also have a PhD in astrophysics from UCSC and worked for NASA for 11 years.

We mentioned three books on the show: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, The 24 Hour Mind by Rosalind Cartwright and Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter Levine and Ann Frederick.
