Why Attend

  • Research has linked sleep problems and dream loss to a wide range of mental and physical illnesses including depression, obesity, and anxiety. Deep, refreshing sleep is the cornerstone of your health, the foundation of your well-being, and is crucial to your spiritual practice.

  • The most common treatments for insomnia rely on dubious medications and over-simplified techniques that inevitably fall short. Through a skillful integration of science and art, Dr. Naiman offers a comprehensive yet practical approach to healing sleeplessness and promoting a vibrant dream life that is safe, effective, and all-natural.

  • Sound sleep is a way of protecting ourselves against past, present, and future challenges. It is not a reward, but a necessity.
