This book mines the rich cultural legacy of philosophy, folklore, and legend, especially Greek mythology, to understand their inner meaning and their relevance to the dilemmas of a troubled and confused world at the crossroads of evolution.
The "Dreamer" explores the art and science of thinking and the roots of creativity nurtured in character and consciousness. Why are people so resistant to change? Why are individuals so often their own worst enemies? What are the skills, qualities of character, and frames of consciousness necessary for success in volatile job markets? How to manage our Life Energy? How to awaken the divine gift of intelligence? Where to find inspiration in the creative process? Why are the arts and culture so critical to the development of the human spirit? The "Dreamer" examines the five aspects of our human nature - the animal, the child, the artist, the saint, and the warrior - and their connections to a creative life.

About the Author
In 1987, during the advent of Perestroika, Paul was invited to the Soviet Union, where his book on creativity and self-realization was published in Russian. The book became a best-seller and he was encouraged to make a television series for Soviet Central Television based on the book's themes. The 14-part TV series ("To the Promised Land..."), blending Russian performing arts with talks on social and psychological change, became part of a fund-raising effort by Paul and his wife Paulina to support the renowned but struggling Natalya Sats Musical Theater.
Paul and Paulina live in the Caledon Hills north of Toronto. They are semi-retired, dedicating their time to writing and publishing.
