Eastwind Classes

NEW 8-week Dreamwork Class starting Thursday, March 3rd, 2022.


Dr. Candida Maurer is offering a course in dreamwork!

Have you wondered what your dreams are really telling you?

Dreamwork is the process of carefully learning to unravel the hidden meanings in dreams by using both theoretical and practical methods to understand their deep language. Candida has studied dream interpretation extensively using approaches from Carl Jung and others to reveal the secret messages of dreams.

“Once the dream is revealed, a new path into understanding the Self emerges.”

Candida has studied her own and others’ dreams for over 40 years and finds that dreams are the most direct path into our unconscious mind. 

“Dreams are always leading us to deeper aspects of the Self with the ongoing goal of providing us with information that allows the integration of both conscious and unconscious processes.”

In the class we will be working with our own and each other’s dreams. There is literally no clearer path for self-revelation, and there are only a few other paths that help others find themselves in this level of truth and depth.

An important part of Eastwind’s purpose is education, either through the therapeutic process, experiential workshops, or didactic classes. Our intent is to provide high-quality offerings to both professionals and the general public. Please check back often, as the selection of classes may change and new classes may become available.

Classes For The General Public
These classes will be offered on a scheduled or as-requested basis. Unless otherwise specified, the only requirement for eligibility is your interest! (Details such as dates, times, and cost will be announced as the class is offered)

Several major techniques, as well as the theory behind meditation, setting up a meditation practice, and other practical considerations will be covered.

It is simple to learn, is independent of any religious orientation, and is very effective. See here for more information on Reiki. These classes will be taught by Reiki Master Joseph Mizelle, LMT.

Classes for Healthcare Professionals
Eastwind is dedicated to training healthcare professionals to understand and apply the underlying principles of mind-body therapy through educational programs and workshops. It is our strong belief that people heal more deeply and effectively when therapy is integrated with body psychology and spiritual practice. All classes will be offered on a scheduled or as-requested basis. (Continuing education units may be available, depending on the student’s profession and license requirements.)

Dream Analysis – This look at “the royal road to the unconscious” covers a practical method of dream analysis, based in Carl Jung’s archetypal theory, mythology, metaphor, and personal meaning to the dreamer. Emphasis is placed on the dream’s meaning to the dreamer, rather than a canned list of general meanings. This class is taught by Candida Maurer, PhD.

Energy Medicine – The broad field of energy medicine has many expressions. This class focuses on techniques and orientations that are easy learned and immediately applicable. Taught by Candida Maurer, PhD, the class is based in her many years of training in and experience with various modalities.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy – This class is an 8-week course introducing hypnotic theory and technique for healthcare practitioners. Students will learn basic hypnotherapy techniques for a variety of concerns, including pain management, habit disorders, mind-body therapy, trauma release, and other topics as needed. Each class will include both theory and practice, so that students will leave having confidence that they can create competent hypnotic states for their clients. Taught by Candida Maurer, PhD.
