Everyone dreams – but do you know what your dreams are telling you? In Dream Your Self into Being Dr. Bonnie Buckner proves that dreaming puts you in the driver’s seat of your life by showing you how to understand the messages of your dreams and use them as tools for personal empowerment. We follow Dr. Buckner on her personal dreaming journey from a ranch in remote West Texas to Oprah, to founding a company, to working on a Presidential campaign. Through dreaming, Dr. Buckner was led to her dreaming teacher who taught her the 13th century Kabbalistic practices of dreaming and imagery that Dr. Buckner now teaches to business and creative professionals around the world today. Readers of Dream Your Self into Being will learn how to work with your dreams and find a step-by-step guide for starting a dream group. Included in the book are imagery exercises to jump start and hone your dreaming process. Buckner passionately believes that listening to your dreams and following their messages leads to selfhood, success, and fulfillment. Her enthusiasm inspires readers to pay attention to what their dreams are telling them during the night so they can live the wisdom of their dreams during the day.
Examining recalled dreams with many others in a Social Dreaming Matrix leads to the transformation of the thinking embedded in the dreams. There are infinite meanings to a dream by regarding the dream as an unconscious product of cultural knowledge, not as an expression of the psyche exclusively, opening new possibilities of thinking.
Kahlil Gibran released his universally acclaimed masterpiece, The Prophet, in 1923. Since then this incredible book has been renowned for its profound answers to life's deepest questions. Now, several generations later, Kahlil's great-cousin Hajjar Gibran has written the long-awaited answer to his ancestor's promise. The Return of the Prophet, based on Hajjar's real-life experiences, is a moving collection of inspiring words spoken to Hajjar by Kahlil in a series of visions. Hajjar's life experiences and Kahlil's wise advice and prophetic statements that are applicable to everyone are woven masterfully and told beautifully. The Return of the Prophet is written in the same style as The Prophet, yet contains a modern understanding of spirituality and faith that can be applied to all religions. Like The Prophet with its universal themes and timeless advice, The Return of the Prophet is another true insight into life's deepest meanings.

Self and Consciousness in Neuroscience, Meditation, and Philosophy
Author: Evan Thompson
Publisher: Columbia University Press
A renowned philosopher of the mind, also known for his groundbreaking work on Buddhism and cognitive science, Evan Thompson combines the latest neuroscience research on sleep, dreaming, and meditation with Indian and Western philosophy of mind, casting new light on the self and its relation to the brain. Thompson shows how the self is a changing process, not a static thing. When we are awake we identify with our body, but if we let our mind wander or daydream, we project a mentally imagined self into the remembered past or anticipated future. As we fall asleep, the impression of being a bounded self distinct from the world dissolves, but the self reappears in the dream state. If we have a lucid dream, we no longer identify only with the self within the dream. Our sense of self now includes our dreaming self, the "I" as dreamer. Finally, as we meditate—either in the waking state or in a lucid dream—we can observe whatever images or thoughts arise and how we tend to identify with them as "me." We can also experience sheer awareness itself, distinct from the changing contents that make up our image of the self. Contemplative traditions say that we can learn to let go of the self, so that when we die we can witness its dissolution with equanimity. Thompson weaves together neuroscience, philosophy, and personal narrative to depict these transformations, adding uncommon depth to life's profound questions. Contemplative experience comes to illuminate scientific findings, and scientific evidence enriches the vast knowledge acquired by contemplatives.
