Description - The History of Last Night's Dream by Rodger Kamenetz

A third of our time on earth is spent sleeping. Yet our dreams, if remembered at all, have been relegated to nothing more than curious anecdotes. When Freud, a century ago, awakened modern interest in the dream, his theory of interpretation undermined the potential insights dreams had to offer. For Freud, dreams are nothing more than fragmented puzzle parts made up of events from our waking life. Most of us today still live under Freud's far-reaching influence. When we wake up from a disturbing series of images, the first thing we do is explain it away or ignore it.We take away little to nothing and move on with our lives. In this way, we have lost the gift of our dreams. This is the legacy of Freud's dream theory. But what if he is wrong? Rodger Kamenetz's exploration of the world of dreams reopens all the questions we thought were settled. We soon learn how the struggle between what we dream and how we interpret our dreams has shaped Western thought. Learning from an 87 year old female kabbalist in Jerusalem, a suave Tibetan tulku in Copenhagen, and a crusty intuitive postman/dream master in northern Vermont, Kamenetz recovers for us the lost power of our nightly visions.
