Fellow dreamsters,

In his proposal, Jeremy writes:

<< (4) Any program training people to work with dreams should offer an 
of the history of dream work as a world-wide activity. Although programs may 
choose to emphasize one aspect of this tradition, such as the European, 
medical/psychiatric, tradition of dream exploration, they should also offer 
at least an over-view of the many other strands of aboriginal and 
non-European work with dreams. This should include, but not be limited to 
exposure to those traditions which grant primacy to the dream as a means of 
communion with the realms of spirit.>>

As a history major, I applaud the inclusion of a historical/survey course in 
any dreamwork education curriculum. As past veteran of many curriculum 
committee discussions, may I suggest that the sentences following the first 
in this paragraph be deleted for the purpose of submitting this proposal. 
They go beyond generalities of structure and enter into the domain of detail 
and specifics.

The decision as to which plants should grow on the trellis is important, but 
is another stage in the planning process. Jeremy, you may wish to first gain 
approval for the idea and its overall framework, before moving on to this 
stage. Another option would be to open this issue for discussion here.
