"...a significant contribution to the literature of both integral theory and dream studies ... Highly recommended." - CHOICE "There is nothing like Integral Dreaming in the literature. This is an ambitious undertaking and its readers will gain an in-depth understanding of dreams and dreaming that they will find nowhere else. The 'five movements' of Integral Dream Practice will encourage many readers to follow the steps outlined, and integrate dreamwork into their own lives. This book will be an instant classic in the field." - Stanley Krippner
