CHRIS ZYDEL, Painting from the Wild Heart: www.creativejuicesarts.com Chris helps us free ourselves from the inner critic, fear, self-doubt and the strictures of how art is "supposed to be done." With warmth and humor, she challenges us to find our own unique and amazing way of painting. I met her years ago when we were both in a group led by Natalie Rogers, and continue to paint with her at her studio in Oakland.

STREPHON KAPLAN WILLIAMS, Dreamwork: strephonsays.com
Strephon emphasizes interacting with our dreams through active imagination, such as writing dialogs with dream characters, or doing dream re-entries to continue the dream to resolution. This process is deeply healing and satisfying, whereas analytical interpretations left me feeling, "So what?" I studied with and worked for him at the Jungian-Senoi Institute in Berkeley for several years in the 1980's. I've continued to write dialogs with dream spirits, a few of which are included here.

DREAM TREE, www.dreamtree.com, is the brainchild of Peggy Coats. It is "A Resource Center for Dreamers" with a global reach, offering a treasure trove of information and links to the community of dreamers; dream groups (on- and off-line); dreamwork methods; and dreams in art, literature, film, and music, and more.
