Return to DreamStar's main site
Welcome to the DreamStar Institute course management area. Here you can obtain training and certification in the Five-Star Methodtm––a systematic dreamwork method based on co-creative dream theory.
While the FiveStar Method is easy to learn, it represents a distinctive approach, and provides a non-invasive method that can be used by professionals and lay dream workers, alike. Dr. Sparrow has recently published chapters on the FiveStar Method (FSM) in Dream Understanding Biology, Psychology, and Culture, and Working with Dreams and PTSD Nightmares. Copies of those chapters, as well as dozens of other journal articles and essays can be found on the main DreamStar Institute site.
