Have you ever awakened from a dream that left you feeling stunned – a dream so vivid or impactful – so unexpected – that it changes your life from that point forward? Imagine you could ask a question of a dream character, or the dream itself, and watch as a profoundly surprising response appears. Suppose you could take action in your dream to eliminate a recurring nightmare, heal a relationship, or even a physical ailment. The 100 dreamers in this book have!
These are what might be called big dreams, stories of life changing guidance, insight and healing; some that reach beyond the senses and even beyond death. They are presented as guideposts along our life’s journey, and introduced by 22 internationally acclaimed experts, psychologists, researchers, and best-selling authors from the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD): Deirdre Barrett, Susannah Benson, Kelly Bulkeley, Laurel Clark, Gayle Delaney, Marcia Emery, Patricia Garfield, Robert Gongloff, Bob Haden, Robert Hoss, Ed Kellogg, Stanley Krippner, Justina Lasley, Jacquie E. Lewis, Tallulah Lyons, Wendy Pannier, Alan Siegel, Carlyle Smith, Gregory Scott Sparrow, Jeremy Taylor, Robert Waggoner and Kelly Sullivan Walden.
I am excited that this compilation of dream stories is available for everyone to read. Throughout my career as a dream therapist, I have been privileged to hear many stories of dreams that have changed individuals’ lives. Now, everyone can benefit from seeing how their personal dreams can inform, guide, encourage and improve their life. Enjoyable even if you have never remembered your personal dreams! Just reading this book will improve your dream recall and certainly your respect for the wisdom of dreams.
