I checked out a library version of this book without realizing that it was buried someplace in my library. This book is a pretty good introducution to exploring the subconscious, particularly in a Jewish context, but can wok for non-Jews also. I was hoping to get an analysis of the relationship between waking visions and dreams, but this book doesn't probe into those kinds of textures, but explores them together in a sort of froth. But she is a pretty good guide into how one might probe into ones own nether regions, so I have a kind of mixed reaction. ( )

Book description
A dynamic exposition of the powerful, ancient Sephardic tradition of dreaming passed down from the renowned 13th-century kabbalist Isaac the Blind

• Includes exercises and practices to access the dream state at will in order to engage with life in a state of enhanced awareness

• Written by the close student of revered kabbalist Colette Aboulker-Muscat

In Kabbalah and the Power of Dreaming Catherine Shainberg unveils the esoteric practices that allow us to unlock the dreaming mind's transformative and intuitive powers. These are the practices used by ancient prophets, seers, and sages to control dreams and visions. Shainberg draws upon the ancient Sephardic Kabbalah tradition, as well as illustrative stories and myths from around the Mediterranean, to teach readers how to harness the intuitive power of their dreaming. While the Hebrew Bible and our Western esoteric tradition give us ample evidence of dream teachings, rarely has the path to becoming a conscious dreamer been articulated. Shainberg shows that dreaming is not something that merely takes place while sleeping--we are dreaming at every moment. By teaching the conscious mind to be awake in our sleeping dreams and the dreaming mind to be manifest in daytime awareness, we are able to achieve revolutionary consciousness. Her inner-vision exercises initiate creative and transformative images that generate the pathways to self-realization.
