All relationship is holy because it is within relationship that being is found and known and interacted with.” Ann will share her own experiences of knowing relationship with everything. Read more

When it comes to my journey of recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction, I believe first and foremost in something I learned early on: if I helped others, there was a good chance that I would stop thinking about just myself. Or said another way: to keep it, I had to give it away.
Over these last 3 decades, I have experienced many different forms of service which I will talk about briefly.
Today, my service centers on bringing forth a face and a voice of Recovery. Too often all we see is the face of active addiction. There is now a national movement to change that paradigm and talk about Recovery as well, and I work toward making that happen not only in Santa Fe, but also throughout New Mexico.

On a winter morning during a season of great stress and challenge, Tzivia Gover was startled awake by a frightening dream. On reflection she realized this dream was offering her essential information that would ultimately help her turn her life around. Although everyone dreams, too many people dismiss their dreams as meaningless or too confusing to be of value, but Tzivia has come to believe that dreams are a rich resource that each person can learn to tap into and learn from. Ever since her own dream woke her up, Gover has used dreams to guide and advise her on everything from optimal nutrition, to relationship advice, to creative direction, decision-making, and more. In addition, she has become a Certified Dream Therapist, and now works with people and groups to help them find insight, meaning, and healing from their dreams. In this talk, Gover will speak about her personal journey through dreams, her mindful approach to dreaming, and her belief that dreams can help us all heal personally—and as a global community.
