We talked about dreams as a source of resilience in our lives and about the way that dreams helped a Viet Nam vet integrate his traumatic experiences.  We touched in on the element of surprise in a dream and about using the Emotional Freedom Technique (i.e. tapping) with dreams and also about the upcoming IASD conference June 13-17, 2020 in Scottsdale AZ.  We had a caller who shared with us that her dreams made more sense in retrospect than in the moment.
