Our Dreams Will Never Be the Same Again

About the Author:

Roger Kamenetz wrote the landmark international bestseller, The Jew in the Lotus, and the winner of the National Jewish Book Award, Stalking Eljah. He is a Louisiana State University Distinguished Professor of English and Religious Studies and a certified dream therapist. He lives in New Orleans with his wife, fiction writer Moira Crone.

Review:

“Kamenetz has written a manual for living the dream of life through the real dreams of an individual.” (Andrei Codrescu, NPR Commentator)

“A profound, affecting and deeply rewarding book from a charismatic teacher.” (Jonathan Kirsch, author of A History of the End of the World)

“Kamenetz’s new book brilliantly combines dream and soul and offers an accessible understanding of both. I highly recommend it.” (Brian L. Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives, Many Masters)

“An enchanting and provocative book exploring a subject with profound implications about our very humanity.” (Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize Winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain)

“[A] powerful and beautifully written book.” (Stephen J. Dubner, bestelling co-author of Freakanomics)

“Kamenetz’s fierce honesty and unflinching self-revelation inspire both admiration and awe [...] [A] smart, funny, and revolutionary book...” (Susan Larson, New Orleans Times-Picayune)

“Rodger Kamenetz writes in this fascinating book that words, too many words, stand between us and our dreams.” (Los Angeles Times)

“The History of Last Night’s Dream is at once affable and audacious; Kamenetz is a reliable narrator in unreliable territory.... Kamenetz’s poetic eye is alive and well.” (The Forward)

“Rodger Kamenetz’s vividly honest and well-reswearched book on dreams in Western culture is extraordinary-- in part for its defiance of genre...Before I read it had heard Kamenetz refer to it as a memoir, but it as much an argument for a paradigm shift in dream interpretation.” (The Christian Century)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A third of our time on earth is spent sleeping. Yet our dreams, if remembered at all, have been relegated to nothing more than curious anecdotes. When Freud, a century ago, awakened modern interest in the dream, his theory of interpretation undermined the potential insights dreams had to offer. For Freud, dreams are nothing more than fragmented puzzle parts made up of events from our waking life. Most of us today still live under Freud s far-reaching influence. When we wake up from a disturbing series of images, the first thing we do is explain it away or ignore it.We take away little to nothing and move on with our lives. In this way, we have lost the gift of our dreams. This is the legacy of Freud s dream theory. But what if he is wrong? Rodger Kamenetz s exploration of the world of dreams reopens all the questions we thought were settled. We soon learn how the struggle between what we dream and how we interpret our dreams has shaped Western thought. Learning from an 87 year old female kabbalist in Jerusalem, a suave Tibetan tulku in Copenhagen, and a crusty intuitive postman/dream master in northern Vermont, Kamenetz recovers for us the lost power of our nightly visions.
