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 dream work 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.
I have recently published chapters in Working with Dreams and PTSD Nightmares and Dream Understanding Biology, Psychology, and Culture on the FiveStar Method (FSM). Copies of those chapters, as well as dozens of other journal articles and essays can be found on the main DreamStar site.
If the following is confusing, please don't hesitate to contact me for a videoconferenced meeting to discuss your interests in DreamStar courses. We can meet via Zoom at a mutually convenient time.
- Certification Course (Cost: $199), consisting of 7 modules of self-paced online study. Each module has its own certificate of completion. A trainer will provide feedback for your responses to the interactive questions posted on the Course Forum. If you have already enrolled in the Non-Certification Course, you can upgrade to the Certification Course from within the Course itself. There is a Paypal link on the Course home page that will allow you to upgrade for $130 whenever you'd like.
- Mentored Practicum (Cost: $299) (Prerequisite: Certification Course). During the practicum, you will schedule at least three Zoom videoconferenced sessions with me, submit samples of actual dream work that I will review with you during our video sessions 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. (Please note that Dr. Sparrow reserves the right not to award certification, and to return pro-rated Practicum fees if it becomes evident that certain criteria of completion will not be met. A contract specifying those completion criteria will be signed by both parties prior to the beginning of the Mentored Practicum. Additional work may be agreed upon by both parties in order to satisfy the criteria of completion.)
Upon completion of the Certification Course and Mentored Practicum, you will receive a certificate confirming your DreamStar Certification.
