Welcome to the DreamStar Institute course management area. Here you can obtain training and certification in the Five-Star Method––a systematic dream work method based on co-creative dream theory, which has been developed by lucid dream pioneer and psychotherapist, G. Scott Sparrow.
While the FiveStar Method is easy to learn, it is an advanced approach. So please review the paper, "A New Approach to Dream Analysis Congruent with Contemporary Counseling Approaches," and the one-page summary of the FiveStar Method before enrolling in one of the courses (see link below).
- Mastering the FiveStar Method. A self-paced course based on three of the seven modules of the Certification Course. It focuses on helping you acquire the skills to facilitate co-creative dream work through learning the FiveStar Method. The course includes feedback from GSS to your required forum postings. The course offers 10 CEs (authorized by the Texas Board of Professional Counselors), and certificates of completion for each module. Cost: $129
If you are interested in becoming certified by DreamStar Institute, DreamStar Certification requires the satisfactory completion of the following:
- DreamStar Certification Course, consisting of 7 modules of self-paced online study. Each module has its own certificate of completion and CEs (authorized by the Texas Board of Professional Counselors), so you will earn CEs as you go through the course. I provide feedback for your responses to the interactive questions posted on the Course Forum. Cost: $199 and 24 CEs.
- Mentored Practicum (Prerequisite: Certification Course). During the practicum, you will schedule three Skype sessions with me, submit samples of actual dream work that I will review with you during our Skype sessions, and participate in personal dream work as a way to develop a hands-on competency with this methodology. The practicum will involve written and verbal feedback from me. Cost: $299 and 9 CEs (Note: Participation in eight sessions of an online dream group will count as a substitute for your mentored practicum.)
Upon completion of the Certification Course and Mentored Practicum, you will receive a certificate confirming your DreamStar Certification.
