    Secrets from a master dream weaver! I¿ve heard author Jeremy Ta

    Secrets from a master dream weaver!

    I’ve heard author Jeremy Taylor referred to as a master, dream weaver, wizard, and teacher. From the decades of experience he has with dream work, it only seems right that his book should do a top-notch job at sharing his methods. This revision of “Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill” is fresh, approachable, and best of all, life-enhancing. The hippie within me loves his message that dreams are tools for personal and social change. The analyst in me demands solid case studies and specific steps to achieve that, and on this, Taylor delivers. I have not only started a dream-group but also started helping my daughter with addressing her son’s troubling dreams. This book touches on how childhood trauma can continue to recur in adult dreams but what can you do when the person is still a child? We found The Nightmare Solution to be a great guide for working out his dreams through drawing exercises – something I think I think Taylor would encourage as we are following still his four core principles:
    1. All dreams speak a universal language and come in the service of health and wholeness. 
    2. Only the dreamer can say with any certainty what meaning his or her dream may have. 
    3. There is no such thing as a dream with only one meaning. 
    4. No dreams come just to tell you what you consciously already know.
