This is an exceptionally well-written and sensibly argued book about that most insubstantial of human experiences, the world of dreams. The author offers a selection of theories and case-histories concerning this twilight realm, while sharing her own conviction that dreams can and do provide a reliable path to higher states of consciousness.
Night visions are bestowed upon all sentient beings regardless of wealth or gender, faith or race. Even animals have dreams, as anyone who has ever watched their pet dog or cat twitching in sleep can tell. Nevertheless, it is not easy to say what exactly a dream is. Meaningless brain-chatter or emanation from the celestial realm? Chemical imbalance or evidence of an invisible Inner Controller? Tandan, who has a degree in psychology and has conducted a number of dream workshops, tells us there is no final verdict, despite decades and even centuries of speculation upon the subject.
