KABBALAH / SELF-HELP "A brilliantly articulated exploration of the elusive mystery of dreams and imagination and how they dance both sides of the veil between fantasy and reality. This is a book that delivers everything its title promises." Rabbi Gershon Winkler, author of Kabbalah 365: Daily Fruit from the Tree of Life "Catherine Shainberg is a profound spiritual teacher who reminds us that dreaming is not only about what we do when we sleep but about waking up to a deeper life by remembering and navigating from our sacred purpose." Robert Moss, author of Dreamways of the Iroquois: Honoring the Secret Wishes of the Soul "Shainberg guides us through the possibilities of inner growth through dreamwork, offering exercises that are intriguing and open the mind and heart. She is on a path of great beauty." Rodger Kamenetz, author of The Jew in the Lotus "Not since the time of Joseph and his prophetic dreams has such a well-written storytelling guidebook been offered." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., author of Mind Into Matter In Kabbalah and the Power of Dreaming Catherine Shainberg unveils the esoteric practices that allow us to unlock the dreaming mind's transformative and intuitive powers. These are the practices used by ancient prophets, seers, and sages to control dreams and visions. Shainberg draws upon the ancient Sephardic Kabbalah tradition of dreaming passed down from the renowned thirteenth-century kabbalist Isaac the Blind, as well as illustrative stories and myths from around the Mediterranean, to teach readers how to harness the intuitive power of their dreaming. While the Hebrew Bible and our Western esoteric tradition give us ample evidence of dream teachings, rarely has the path to becoming a conscious dreamer been articulated. Shainberg shows that dreaming is not something that merely takes place while sleeping--we are dreaming at every moment. By teaching the conscious mind to be awake in our sleeping dreams and the dreaming mind to be manifest in daytime awareness, we are able to achieve revolutionary consciousness. Her inner-vision exercises initiate creative and transformative images that generate the pathways to self-realization. CATHERINE SHAINBERG, Ph.D., is a psychologist, healer, and teacher with a private practice in New York City. She spent ten years studying the Kabbalah of Light in Jerusalem with revered kabbalist Colette Aboulker-Muscat and an additional twenty years in continuing collaboration with her. In 1982 Catherine Shainberg founded the School of Images, dedicated to teaching the revelatory dream and kavanah (intent) techniques of this ancient Sephardic Kabbalah tradition. She conducts imagery and dreaming workshops internationally.
