Dream Analyst Layne Dalfen, who founded The Dream Interpretation Center in Montreal in 1997, is the author of the new two-book set, Have a Great Dream. Layne believes all dreams are great—even nightmares – because they hold the key to solving the problems and challenges currently plaguing you and to becoming who you were intended to be. With her 45-year deep background in dream study, Layne will explain the process that enables you to understand what your unconscious is trying to reveal to you while you sleep, how that applies directly to an issue that is stressing you, and the way to use that information to find the solution. It’s right there—just waiting to be unpacked! Layne says your dreams can be the key to unlocking lifelong patterns that are your default behavior, giving you access to your full potential. haveagreatdream.com
The five things you need to know about Canadian/Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer Stephen Voyce: He’s a vegetarian, unnaturally terrified of spiders, obsessed with Batman, Michael Jackson is his idol, but most importantly, he believes that everyone deserves to live out their dreams. When his career was in its infancy, his music served as a coping mechanism to overcome the loss of his mum, who instilled in him a sense of unending curiosity. And in her passing, he saw that flame extinguish. As his journey progressed, Voyce saw how his music touched hearts, and that rekindled that spark. “Whatever you project into the universe, the universe projects back at you. So you might as well be a guiding light and watch the universe come back and guide you.” VOYCEMUSIC.COMInstagram.com/StephenVoyce
