HEALING DREAMS

Exploring the Dreams That Can Transform Your Life

Healing Dreams: Exploring the Dreams That Can Transform Your Life by Marc Ian Barasch Riverhead Books/Non-fiction/ISBN 1-57322-167-8 On Sale October 23

Most of us have had (or will have) a dream that stops us in our tracks, forcing us to question the major choices in our lives, offering a startling new image of a loved one, or provoking a greater awareness of our very existence. Such "big" dreams tell us that we're not who we think we are, and reveal dimensions beyond everyday reality. But even when we're certain we've encountered a vision of life-altering magnitude - something as vivid and memorable as anything in waking life--the question remains: what exactly are we to make of it? What does such a dream really mean? And, more challengingly, what does the dream want from us?

With breathtaking clarity, this book sets out a new, multi-layered method of dreamwork, and shows us how unlocking its mysteries can help us discover our greatest potential for authentic life. Through hundreds of revealing examples of unusually vivid dreams, the author takes us through the fundamentals of interpretation and appreciation, focusing on the different aspects of life - health, work, relationships, and spirituality - that can be transformed through the unimaginable power of listening to one's inner experiences.

Healing Dreams shows us that, at their best, dreams can help us to embrace our own contradictions, and heal the rifts that arise around life's major passages. Drawing upon fifteen years of research, this book represents a major addition to the dream literature, and a bold new perspective on how dreams can be our greatest hope for finding wholeness.

Healing Dreams offers a bold new perspective on the power of dreams. It is a call to spiritual adventure, an invitation to stir up the soul and question our certainties. It does not guarantee easy answers; rather it is an invitation to begin a journey.

Says dream researcher Gayle Delaney, "Read this book if you want to have a bigger, more vivid life."
