About Jen Maidenberg

For many years, my essays and poetry have focused on love and longing, music and memory, all at the intriguing intersection of dreams and waking life. Now, I'm expanding the writing I do to include more about how these concepts and topics can be deeply healing. Your support enables me to research these topics, devote my attention to this work, expand the conversation, and make a bigger impact. Thank you!

Investigating the unknown lights me up. Working through life's and love's puzzles with other curious people makes me feel more alive. When I feel alone in this process, it's not the same. For me, discovery is truly about relating to and engaging with you along the way.

By subscribing to my Patreon, you’re supporting me as I research and write about dreams, memory, music, and time. You are also granting me the gift of time to truly delve into these topics and share what I discover.

My hope is that what I create --whether that's an essay, a photo, a poem or even an audio/video share--inspires you to explore, to question, or to deepen your connection to life and living. Perhaps you'll be able to feel into something you've been afraid to feel into before.

Subscribers have exclusive access to Patreon-only research, writing, and audios about:
Precognitive dreaming -- the whys, hows, and who cares
Healing trauma, regret, and loss in waking life and dreaming life
Awakening to the patterns and symbols hidden in plain sight, across time
Tapping into how music initiates and fosters mental time travel and healing

Additionally, you are backing early research and development needed to create:
1.a new healing modality using dreams, dreaming, writing, listening, and music
2.a "dream card deck" for healing and connecting with your psychic self, and
3.a new virtual reality (VR) gaming and therapeutic experience using dreams, memory, storytelling, and music for healing.

Consider this space an incubator for growing ideas, where you get to peek in on what's happening in the laboratory. I'll also be collaborating with other "makers," artists, musicians, scientists, and healers on projects and products. Watch this become a collective of really cool people, you included!

More About Jen Maidenberg
long-time professional journalist and published author, I've been writing about and infusing myself with "alternative healing" since 2006. It's in the last decade that I’ve focused more specifically on understanding my dream life, which kept surprising me with strange new ways of perceiving memory and time, while also presenting me with unexpected healing opportunities. Long-held limiting beliefs and fears dissolved over time through the dream process. Relationships I struggled with in real life seemed to right themselves in my dreams. "Past," "present," and "future" redefined themselves for me.

Dreams as Healing Technology
Despite some use in therapeutic settings by psychotherapists, analysts, and other health practitioners, employing dreams as an intentional healing practice is not so common.

I’ve learned we don’t necessarily need a therapist in order to heal in and through our dreams. (Which isn't to say it isn't helpful to have a guide or a professional by our side, when possible!)

I've already been writing for some time about my own dream life, as well as others' research of precognition in an effort to expand awareness so more people can have access to this potentially curative experience. There is a lot of scientific evidence and research-backed study of precognition already! We just don't often have access to it.

My dreamtime is a place where I can be in creative flow even when the busy-ness of my waking life — kids, work, navigating a global pandemic — does not allow me to.  I’ve written poems in dreams. I’ve come up with story ideas. I’ve connected dots. I’ve had realizations. I’m not the first to do this. There are legends of dreams resulting in scientific discoveries even. (Look up August Kekule and the benzene ring.)

Over time, I’ve come to understand how even the most absurd dreams can offer insights into real-life dilemmas, as well as how much our subconscious seeks to protect us and alert us to ways in which we can shift our beliefs in an instant, for the better. 

And What About Music?
As my dreams have, so has music healed me in unexpectedly magical ways. It's not a secret that music has a profound effect on how we access memories. In my research and through my own personal experience, I believe music has even more untapped potential for connecting to us not just to our past, but also our future selves in a way that can be life-changing. I'll be sharing lots more details on that here, soon.

Stay tuned for how-tos, tips, facts, and lots and lots of fun.

My first Patreon offering to you is my love and gratitude for your support. Thank you.

*As always, it's important to note: I am not a medical practitioner. The advice and tips offered here are simply me sharing what I have discovered and found beneficial through my own experiences.
