Dream Scientist, Bob Hoss, Director of the Dream Science Foundation, and past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (www.AsDreams.org
-- and will be speaking at the upcoming conference) wrangled 100 dreamers (ala in the style of "Chicken Soup for the Soul") to share stories that have done just that!
Have you ever awakened from a dream that left you feeling stunned—a dream so vivid or impactful—so unexpected—that it changes your life from that point forward? Imagine you could ask a question of a dream character, or the dream itself, and watch as a profoundly surprising response appears. Suppose you could take action in your dream to eliminate a recurring nightmare, heal a relationship, or even a physical ailment.
These are what might be called big dreams, stories of life changing guidance, insight and healing; some that reach beyond the senses and even beyond death. They are presented as guideposts along our life's journey, and introduced by 22 internationally acclaimed experts, psychologists, researchers, and best-selling authors from the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD): Deirdre Barrett, Susannah Benson, Kelly Bulkeley, Laurel Clark, Gayle Delaney, Marcia Emery, Patricia Garfield, Robert Gongloff, Bob Haden, Robert Hoss, Ed Kellogg, Stanley Krippner, Justina Lasley, Jacquie E. Lewis, Tallulah Lyons, Wendy Pannier, Alan Siegel, Carlyle Smith, Gregory Scott Sparrow, Jeremy Taylor, Robert Waggoner and moi, Kelly Sullivan Walden.
On the show today, we talk about some of his favorite stories--these dream tales will inspire you, make you cry, uplift your soul, make you never again take your dreams lying down!
Here's more about my favorite Dream Scientist:

His simple but powerful Image Activation dreamworking approach is based on a unique blending of Gestalt work, Jungian theory, the neurobiology of dreaming, plus his research into the significance of color in dreams. Formerly a scientist, and researcher in the field of optical communications, he was a pioneer with multiple patents and the Corporate Vice President for Global Telecommunications at both American Express and IBM. He now devotes his science and management skills to dream studies. He was recently featured in the PBS Dreamtime TV special, and in Readers Digest, Prevention Magazine and USA Today.
