We speak with Dr. Isaac Taitz about lucid dreaming therapy and image rehearsal therapy which both can be used to relieve nightmares and improve mental health conditions.
We also took a call from Lucille from Cambria who spoke about dreams she has had of deceased love ones and also shared a recent dream about an eleven year old boy coming out of the shadows.
