The Wisdom Of Dreams
Introduction to The Wisdom Of Dreams
Drs. Mahr and Drake met by chance (or synchronously) when Dr. Mahr was giving a lecture to the Sleep Medicine program on dream interpretation. Dr. Drake was in attendance, and the two talked at length after the lecture and their unique partnership was formed. As a sleep scientist, Dr. Drake had always been interested in dreams and Dr. Mahr’s experience as a clinician, teacher and interpreter of dreams led to extensive discussions out of which The Wisdom of Dreams: Science, Synchronicity and the Language of the Soul was born.
