Dream expert • Mon. Sept 12
Dr. Ruben Naiman, clinical assistant professor of medicine and sleep and dream specialist at the University of Arizona, will discuss attitudes and approaches to sleep and its impact on our lives.
“One of my greatest concerns around sleep is that we are more dream-deprived than sleep-deprived,” Dr. Naiman notes. “We tend to devalue dreams as superfluous in the modern world and even in science, dreams are considered a stepchild of sleep. Although they occur within sleep, dreaming is a distinct form of consciousness. We must remember that sleep and dreams are natural experiences and learn to trust their guidance.”
The lecture is at 7pm at the Gelber Conference Centre, 5700 Westbury. $12/ member, $20/non-member.
