Why do we dream?



"Why do we dream?" asked the blue butterfly girl, looking around the circle of animals she had invited to her tea party by the garden gate.
    "You dream so we can always be together," said Bear, without hesitation. "You dream so you will always have a friend. "
    "You dream so you can see," said Hawk. His golden eyes flashed.
    "You dream so you can learn to be brave like me," said Lion.
    "Nonsense," said Mr. Fox. "You dream so you can tell stories about me."
    "Grandfather," the girl looked into the tea water. "Why do we dream?"
    Grandfather Teller's voice bubbled like a pot about to boil. "You dream because humans are the animals that tell stories about all the others."

Robert, I just listened to a free webinar (?) of yours and I am now deeply interested in dreams ... I dream,I remember, I often "get" the message... but I want to know so much more! I cannot afford your workshops right now. Besides, I prefer face-to-face. I am VA Beach, and have looked at A.R.E. for similar trainings but do not see comparable offerings. What book of yours do you recommend that I start with?

Much thanks!

Start with "Conscious Dreaming" and/or "The Three 'Only' Things.
