Dreamtime and Dreamwork: Decoding the Language of the Night

Krippner, Stanley (Ed.).

This up-to-date anthology about dreaming and dreamtime is embodied with one of today's key insights into the nature of dreaming, which Krippner states as follows: "There is an emerging awareness . . . that dreamtime and its products properly belong to the dreamer" (p. xiv). The best method of conveying the fullness of the scope of this volume is to cite the chapter titles and their authors. The titles of the six parts and the number of chapters in each are I. Current Trends in Dreamwork (3); II. Dreams in Therapy and Healing (5); III. Dreams In Creativity and Education (4); IV. Women, Sex and Dreams (4); V. Dreams in Different Times and Places (3); and VI. Frontiers in Dreamwork (6).
