Would you let a bot interpret your dreams? Should you? We speak with Joanna of Blue Lotus Queendom about the pleasures and pitfalls of using AI with dreams. Also what is Yoga Nidra and how does it support Dreamwork. Joanna gives many suggestions about how to use AI with our dreams but that list does NOT include asking the AI what your dream means. She urges us to trust our inner knowing instead. This leads to a conversation about the ethics of telling someone else what their dream means.
We switch to a discussion of yoga nidra. Joanna suggests that it can help us as dreamers in many ways including making us aware of different states of consciousness as well as possibly increasing dream recall
We take a call from Kristen from Virginia who shares a dream about black demons attacking Robin Williams few days before he killed himself. We then take a call from Wendy from Monterey who shares a dream suggesting that we can to learn to cooperate to influence the outcome of the future. Synchronistically, Wendy had met Robin Williams before the years of his fame and recognized that he was alienated from others even then.
