Dream and Lucidity Guidance: What do you want out of your dreamtime? Our sleep is rich with potential. I work individually and in groups to help people navigate and set intentions about dreamtime. I have over 10 years experience in this field. Come to me to improve recall, connect with plants, animals and minerals, increase lucidity, as well as work through some obstacles, such as nightmares, lack of dreams, etc. $

Arati's Story:

I have been a dreamer for as long as I can remember. I met my spiritual teacher, Shri Anandi Ma, in 1997. Since then I have delved deeper into dreamtime and become increasingly healthier. In 2002 I became ill and fatigued. Energy was not available to me in waking time but instead moved into dreamtime. Dreamtime became richer and richer, a place for me to connect with animals and eventually herbs and crystals. I gradually regained my health and transcended multiple chronic health issues. I stay connected to the great information source that exists for me through dreamtime, and use that information to help myself, my family, my friends and clients to greater health.

I am very greatful to have studied Traditional Western Herbalism, including tongue and pulse diagnosis, with Matthew Wood. My dream work is orimarlily self taught. I have also studied Holistic Pelvic Care with Tami Kent, and educate and guide women with her teachings. I work with chronic, and day to day ailments, with a focus on women's health and infertility. I believe that the key to overcoming longterm health disorders is to keep digging deeper to get to the root of the imbalance. Also, it is essential to allow the possibility that you can be well again. Let me work with you to get to the root of your dis-ease and become strong and vital. When health issues are obscured or very challenging it is sometime helpful to work through dreamtime to get insight. I help people work with dreams for their health as well as to improve their access to dreamtime information in general.
