What do your dreams mean? Can you use them to transform your life? Award-winning poet, author, teacher and certified dream therapist Rodger Kamenetz explains how the deeper meanings of our dreams can lead us into spiritual realms we would otherwise never discover. In his book “The History of Last Night’s Dream,” he searches for the spiritual truths and directions of our dreams and, in the process, opens a new world to the soul. Oprah says, "What's so exciting about this book is that it talks about how there's a whole other life that we are living when we sleep, and that our dreams are there as offerings and gifts to us if we only recognize what the dreams are there to teach us."
In the latest episode of Across the Margin’s podcast, award-winning poet, author and teacher Rodger Kamenetz ventures Beyond the Margin to discuss a subject he has devoted his entire life to, dreams. Kamenetz, a prolific and bestselling author of ten books, is best known for The Jew in the Lotus, which follows the story of rabbis making a holy pilgrimage through India to meet with the Dalai Lama. His account of their historic dialogue became an international bestseller, prompting a reevaluation of Judaism in the light of Buddhist thought. But of all of Kamenetz's works, the one that drew in Beyond the Margin host Michael Shields was The History of Last Night's Dream, a novel that delves into a mysterious inner realm and suggests the idea that dreams are not only intensely meaningful, but hold essential truths about who we are.When The History of Last Night's Dream was released in 2007, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Kamenetz on her "Soul Series" program, professing, "What's so exciting about this book is that it talks about how there's a whole other life that we are living when we sleep and that our dreams are there as offerings and gifts to us if we only recognize what the dreams are there to teach us." Building off this idea, Rodger and Michael discuss Rodger's work and their shared passion for dreams, his journey to becoming a dream guide and expert, the study and practice of Natural Dreamwork (“The Wild Medicine!”), the fallacies of dream interpretation, the healing power of dreams, the function and potential of images, the link between poetry and dreams, Rodger’s forthcoming release which is influenced by his dream work (a taste can be found now at Across the Margin!), and much, much more. So journey Beyond the Margin and come face to face with the extraordinary life-changing power of dreams.Subscribe to Across the Margin: The PodcastCheck out Across the Margin the magazine for exciting stories & much, much more!
