Description

Why dreams occur, sleep cycles, how dreams can be used and controlled are all topics investigated here. The books also includes an excellent dream dictionary to give insights into the meanings of dreams. Dream the vision and envision the dream - this book will start you on that journey.

In this book the author investigates the history and background to dreams including the belief of ancient civilization and modern cultures, important dreams through history, major theories about dreaming such as those of Freud and Jung as well as more modern theories, significant recent research and data on animal sleeping experiences. She looks at the phenomena of sleep and dreaming including the basic sleep cycles and how a dream is structured in addition to lucid dreaming, astral projection and nightmares, sleep paralysis and problem solving. Sleep disorders, such as insomnia, sleep-walking and sleep talking are also covered.

Part two of the book gives a comprehensive dream directory and details some of the most common dream subjects for an extra in-depth analysis. It is essential for readers to have some awareness of this long and rich history if they want to have a well-grounded understanding of twentieth century dream psychology. Dreams follow us out of sleep, bringing their magic and mystery into our waking lives, building a bridge between consciousness and unconsciousness, between the known and the unknown.

Dreams inspire us to reclaim their experience through the language of creative thought, art, literature, film, music and movement through our eyes, hands, hearts and minds. Dream the vision and envision the dream - this book will start you on that journey.

Linda Louisa Dell is the author of Can’t Sleep, Won’t Sleep.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
