Reviews and Endorsements

"As we dive into the creative and artistic potential of dreams, we discover a deeper sense of identity. For people new to dreams or life-long dream journalists, this book teaches us how to explore their 'existential meaning' using art, storytelling, ceremony, and treasure boxes. With examples and illustrations, this book provides a rich source of inspiration and makes dream discovery a fun and playful endeavor." -Laurel Clark, DD, DM, past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, author of Intuitive Dreaming.

"Hamel's fascinating book demonstrates that the initiatory images and symbols provided by our dreams are essential to the psyche, as they support our passage from one life-stage to another. The author supplies concrete tools that will allow readers to progress autonomously into the future, with artistry, imagination and greater awareness." - Vera Heller, PhD, art therapy professor, Universite du Quebec en Abitibi-Temiscamingue (UQAT).

"If you only remember one dream you can start a fruitful conversation with Psyche. When you have lifelong Dream Journals as an available treasure chest available, you can foster a compassionate relationship with your inner self and inner artist. Dr. Hamel, a devoted dreamer and art therapist, shares how to tell the story of your dream life, offering a variety of creative and art-therapeutic methods that support a meaningful journey to your soul." - Mag. Johanna Vedral, psychologist, art therapist, and collage artist, author of Collage Dream Writing, teacher of creative writing.
