What do dreams really mean?
From weird dream fragments to unsettling nightmares, our associations to each dream can tell us a little bit more about our unconscious. Tapping into these deeper meanings can help us explore who we are and help us navigate from unsettledness in the dream back to security. Co-hosts Dr. Ann Kelley and Sue Marriott discuss the power of association in dreams and connect those to our inner working models.
“Telling a dream is vulnerable act – it allows someone to step into your unconscious. ” – Dr. Ann Kelley
