I've been an active dream worker for the past 30 years, working primarily on my own dreams.  I've studied and practiced many techniques, but never before had I known anyone to focus on the co-creative nature of dreams.  A lucid dreamer myself, I was immediately intrigued to learn the FiveStar method.  Now having completed the certification course, I am so grateful to have these new skills.  The methods that Scott teaches are highly effective in gaining greater clarity about each dream.   My personal dream work has been greatly enhanced and I now feel ready to assist others in discovering what their dreams have to show them, too.

The FiveStar method of dream investigation developed by Dr. Sparrow appealed to me after recognizing that modern neuroscience and psychology still lean too heavily on the Freudian theory of dreaming. Dozens of New Age or New Thought approaches seem a bit simplistic and incomplete from my estimation. The FiveStar method is a holistic approach emphasizing the co-creative nature of dreaming while recognizing the potential for the dreamer's active, sometimes lucid, participation in the dream. This empowers the dreamer with the ability to influence dream content, and which subsequently imbues the experience with the potential for a powerful ameliorative and healing effect for the dreamer. I have found FiveStar as holistic, compassionate, and inclusive.

I have recognized in the FiveStar Method, which is based on the co-creative/co-determinant paradigm, a reliable conduit for connecting and working with the fundamental soul-level creativity that underpins the most essential impulses of human life both as encountered via dreams and in the correlated content of waking life. While incorporating significant appreciation for the imagery presented in the dream, this approach to dreams builds on the hypothesis, first proposed by Ernest Rossi in 1972, that dreams are created through the interactive relationship between the dreaming mind and the dream itself. In five steps – best understood sequentially, yet adaptable and flexible in practice – the FiveStar Method of dream analysis puts the dreamer responses (including feelings, choices, actions, etc.) at the center of the dream work process. From this orientation, the dreamer is empowered to engage in a process of personal discovery and exploration with very hopeful implications for her development or healing as the patterns of dreamer responses revealed within her dreams give way to new, more adaptive responses in waking life.
