From common dreams such as flying, falling, or being chased, to the seven types of unusual dreams, The Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation demystifies popular misconceptions and offers concrete techniques for recalling and uncovering the hidden meanings of your dreams for inspiration and guidance.
For anyone eager to make sense of these gifts from the Dreammaker, here is an accessible new primer from this eloquent authority on dreams and their archetypal power.
