Pandemic Interlude

During this pandemic our relationships, career, and health are being challenged. Due to our individual personalities, past experiences and current circumstances, we are acting and reacting to the current Covid-19 crisis in different ways.

My Adventure At NYC Publicity Summit

The past week has changed my life. It was time to promote my new book Wake Up! Use Your Nighttime Dreams to Make Your Daytime Dreams Come True. I took a big risk and made a major investment to increase the audience for nighttime dreams. I travelled to NYC last Tuesday with much anxiety about how dreams would be received by the media that I was pitching. I know the incredible overlooked gift of dreams, but would they? Would they consider it sort of hocus pocus, especially the very mainstream media? Out of over 80 people I met from all aspects of media, I only ran into ONE person who was not interested. Some of [...]

Does Remembering My Dreams Interrupt Good Sleep?

Often people are concerned about the interruption of their sleep if they pay attention to their dreams. I find the opposite is true. From my personal experience and from reports of clients, I find that being aware of dreams, journaling dreams, and finding meaning in dreams actually leads to better sleep. Sometimes people have physical conditions that prevent a good quality of sleep and need medical attention, but often our sleep is interrupted by reviewing and worrying about situations that trouble us. We may be caught in the daily emotional impact of our waking lives. By paying attention, listening and trying to understand our emotions and our lives’ journeys, we are relieved of the anxieties [...]

Birth of a New Book

I am so excited to have my new book in my hands and now I am following my dream of waking up the world to this incredible gift of our dreams! In writing Wake Up! I tried to be concise and precise in order to provide a simple process of finding meaning and guidance in dreams. I wanted to share my story about how dreams impacted my life. It was important to include stories of dreams impacting clients and the Institute for Dream Studies’ students. The writing process wasn’t easy, but it was rewarding and even fun at times! I loved creating a way to hopefully help you understand how much you know about dreams [...]

Tuning Into Radio

Tuning Into Radio…I never imagined that I would be a regular guest on radio programs or enjoy it as much as I am. Perhaps the thought of it fluttered through my mind when I heard other people on radio talking about dreams or other passions. Through the past ten years or so, I have done a ran-dom show with an internet host and I did enjoy it but didn't feel totally at ease. I laugh now when I think about the preparation that I did for each program and all the books and notes I had with me as I talked to the host.I think what I enjoy now is the spontaneity of each show.
