At Blog o’ Gnosis, Minister Ann Hill reviews Kelly Bulkeley’s Dreaming in the World’s Religions: A Comparative History.
Dreaming in the World’s Religions finally answers the basic question: how did people in ancient cultures view dreams?
I call this a basic question, because anyone who spends a significant amount of time working with their dreams inevitably wonders how it was done in the past. In your religion, in other religions; by your ancestors, by other people’s ancestors. Dreams call us to understand our place in the world, and Kelly’s book answers the call because it addresses the problem with both comprehensive scholarship and also a deep love and appreciation for dreams.
