I found ASD on the Internet and it was at the time they were looking for an Office Administrator. I was fortunate to have been hired and work for them on a part-time basis.
I also work as a Respiratory Therapist with a specialty in Sleep Disorders. I have come to understand the connection between sleep and dreams very well. I have had patients complain that once they start on cpap therapy, they are dreaming too much! I think they eventually realize that they have been missing out on this part of their life. I enjoy seeing and hearing about the wonderful results of sleep disorder therapy.
I am available to present 1 to 3 hour presentations on this connection and how it forever changes lives. Please contact me if you are interested in a presentation. I give a complete lesson in sleep, stages, functions, etc. with handouts. I end the presentation with information on dreaming and how to "dream with intention", which is the title of my book.
My favorite dream ever is the one that started me on my path of inner exploration. My deceased mother-in-law came to me while sleeping and told me I was going to give birth to a girl, not a boy. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and her prediction came true.
I have to say my favorite dream book is Jeremy Taylor's "where water flows uphill" and then 2nd would be Robert VandeCastle's "our dreaming mind". Jeremy Taylor's book helped me start my own dream group and he gave excellent guidelines and tools to do this with. Robert VandeCastle's book has been a valuable resource when I'm trying to quote something or research a topic.
