On Episode 27, Martin talks with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Larry Brooks about the theory and technique of working with dreams in Psychotherapy. Dr. Brooks discusses trends and evolving theories about dreams in psychoanalysis and neuroscience, as well as his expertise in Dream Tending and Social Dreaming as alternatives to Dream Interpretation in the Freudian tradition. What do we lose as a society, and as individuals, when we are less connected to the content of our slumbered-state mental journeys? Listen in as Larry and Martin stand on the shores of consciousness, share some reflections, and raise more questions.
