Tales iof the TiliŠn—
by Dolores J. Nurss
You might find this offering a little different from most dream-based fiction, since it comes with notes for every chapter on which parts came from dreams and how the story evolved from dreaming, sometimes with glimpses into the meanings of the dreams for the writer. (This is accessible by clicking Dream Notes at the bottom of each chapter, except where otherwise provided.) You can read the stories for free online (the PayPal buttons don’t work) at http://tinyurl.com/23uy64y Dolores Nurss adds new material every week on Tuesdays. Currently she’s posting one chapter a week on “The Poison Gamble”. To ask for further clarification on her dreams, contact the writer at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Dream Workbook
Unopened Letters from God — Using biblical dreams to unlock your nightly dreams
This 208 page book can be used by dream groups as well as by individuals. It is a workbook that can transform your life. It is only when you put yourself into the mix that the experience becomes yours. Everyone in the group will need a workbook.
We often hear people say, “God doesn’t speak to me.” Does God speak to you? The answer is a resounding “yes,” to those who know the dream world. This book will lead you step by step through 14 Biblical dreams, unlocking your nightly dreams, until all of a sudden you realize God is communicating with you in a meaningful and fulfilling way. The language is an ancient language. It is a language that takes you to a deeper place where God’s glory resides. Purchase online: www.HadenInstitute.com
Dreamer: 20 Years of Psychic Dreams and How They Changed My Life
by Andy Paquette
Dictionaries say that dreams are a sequence of images from sleep. What is left out is that these images are recollections of something else. They are memories of experiences, some fanciful, some shatteringly real. When author Andrew Paquette first dreamed of the future he was able to avert a mugging that possibly saved his life. Over the course of the next twenty years he kept meticulous records of his dreams, discovering in the process that future dreams are not only possible, they are common. Even more importantly, because of their quantity he was able to see that his dreams were not just isolated events, but remembered snatches of a continuum of existence shared by everyone. In this groundbreaking book he destroys the myths of what dreams are, how they are described, what they mean and why they are or are not important. The publisher is O Books in the UK and the book is available at Amazon.com

The Sources of Dreams Questionnaire
Josie Malinowski, a PhD student in
Leeds, UK, is recruiting people to complete a questionnaire she has designed
as part of her PhD thesis, which is investigating the ways in which dreams
and waking life are related. The questionnaire has been designed to look at
where some of the content of our dreams comes from – from our imaginations,
our memories, our current life experiences, our worries, and so on. She
needs as many people as possible to complete the questionnaire, and it will
be running until late in 2011. To take part, please go to the following
The Creative Nightmare Project
The most common symptom of PTSD is nightmares. Most if not all
treatment strategies for PTSD include the suppression of nightmares using
either medication or behavioral therapies. Current treatments can lead to
improvement in symptoms, but are associated with more than 70% persistence
and recurrence rates as well as higher rates of divorce, homelessness, and
suicide. Fortunately, while trauma too extreme to emotionally integrate does
not always lead to PTSD, it leads many of us to have nightmares associated
with the experience. Our work with successfully creative directors,
screenwriters and actors at the Sundance Filmmaking labs has demonstrated
that nightmares are common and often used creatively in their work. There
are suggestions from writers as diverse as Freud, Jung, Hemingway, Stephen
King and Tim O’Brien that the nightmares of war and trauma can be used in
creative works. It is our hypothesis that at least for some, the creative
expression of such nightmares could have therapeutic value for both the
individual and society as a whole.
Dream, Dreams, Dreaming! They’re Everywhere! They’re Everywhere! And they’re Making an Impact.
Robbie Bosnak checked the use of the words dream, dreams, dreaming and Dream in the Google search engine. He found a spike since the beginning of the new millennium -- reason for dreamers to rejoice. http://tinyurl.com/2elyhg8
