Publications (by Leland Shields)

  • Dream Work: Around the World and Across Time: An Anthology is a book that brings together compelling writings on dreams from the pioneers of Western psychology, modern psychotherapists, world religions and myths, and from great philosophers, scientists, poets, and more. Its wide range of selections can inform and inspire personal and group dream work, as well as offer ways we can engage with, understand, and interpret our own dreams and dreaming.
