Dream Explorations


"Rachel Norment's Dream Explorations . . . is a gift to us all! The combination of her careful attention to her own dreams over decades, and her keen eye for the dreams and insights of other dreamers has produced a work of great depth, wisdom, and inspiration. It is a joy to read."

"Rachel Norment is a seasoned traveler who knows how to navigate through her unconscious self. Serious dream workers and seekers after self-knowledge will be delighted by this book. Her practical insights, some new to me, into her personal symbols and themes are sure to bring light and guidance to anyone’s inner explorations. I highly recommend it."

“Dream Explorations by Rachel Norment is a journey book, perfect for anyone ready to take that dive. . . into the deeper reaches of the inner self. There's a lot of dream books out now, all kinds. What distinguishes Rachel's creation from others is the skillful way she takes you by the hand and walks you through her life as if it were yours. You learn, because what she did also applies to you. And she doesn't miss a beat, tackling every possible subject, from toilets to sex to snakes to marriage to deaths to (the real biggie for all of us): finding our voice, our purpose in life—through the archetypal magic of dreams. A helpful and enjoyable book.”
