Modern Dreamwork is an amazing book!


"Brilliantly written. Linda Schiller has crafted an invigorating look into the world of dreams; captivating, moving and at the same time seamlessly instructional. I had to pry myself away from reading it well into 'dream time'. With her always warm and authentic energy, she is a wonderful guide for all those who are intrigued by dreaming and hungry to access more levels of their dream life. I love this book. Don't go to sleep without it on your nightstand." You can get it here: https://www.amazon.com/Modern-Dreamwork-Tools-Decoding-Wisdom/dp/0738761826/
