Dream Interpretation & Workshops

Entering the Mystic Realms 
Dream Interpretation & Workshops



"Entering the Mystic Realms" where we discuss Dream Interpretations and Metaphysics.

  • This will be a series of discussions on Understanding/Living Your Dreams and applying the lessons presented in them to waking life. A different, yet comprehensive topic is discussed at each workshop, so there is no need for registration in advance.
  • A mailing list is generated at each workshop and attendees will be alerted, via email, with all the information for the next workshop.
  • Simple tools and instructions will be presented during these discussions. A book list will be distributed for further understanding. 
  • These workshop will be held at various locations that will be announced in advance of each workshop. They are free and open to the public. We do ask for a free will offering. 
  • Anyone who wishes to attend or would like to host a workshop at their facility, please contact Nana Baakan @ nanabaakan@decacs-inc.com.
