Lacks any depth

The one thing dream interpretation is constant on, is there is no one interpretation, but certain characteristics may lead to an overlay of understanding. This book does make it very clear that interpretation is very much unique to the individual, but that's where it stops. I've read some work by Jung a Freud and they go far beyond this narrative . can't recommend this as a read.

Running with the dream wolves

Clarissa describes a way of interpreting dreams using ones own associations instead of those of dream dictionaries- allowing one access to the messages of dreams in a much more direct and authentic manner.

Excellent debrief

Loved the description, simple to understand and the author has such a beautiful voice to listen to. Will apply the very useful tools that I learned to my own dream analyses.

wonderful!

must listen for everyone interested in the meanings of dreams. Dr. Estes is a clear and articulated narrator of her own ideas.

Helpful and Beautiful

I love CPE’s voice and delivery, and the content is levelheaded yet intuitive and illuminating. You can tell she has the wisdom borne of experience with knowing herself and practicing her profession. A treasure.

too short

this book covered many ideas about what different types of dreams mean but it was way too short, didn't teach enough, and the reader was a little bit hoarse in her voice. it was like she couldn't talk well or she was afraid to talk well. still the message was good.
