Pathway to Ecstacy

  
Pathway to Ecstasy:
The Way of the Dream Mandala

by Patricia Garfield, Ph.D. 

Buy used copies of this book in the USA from Amazon.com.

In our dreams we touch our most intimate beings. Yet when we awaken and yearn to hold on to that vivid consciousness and eroticism, we don’t know how.

Patricia Garfield, author of the classic bestseller, Creative Dreaming, candidly reveals her own rich, sensual journey through a lifetime of dreaming and shows you how to chart your own pathway to ecstasy.

Garfield uses as her guide the sacred Tibetan mandala—a circle or group that is organized symmetrically around its center. As you become more aware of your dreams and learn how to remember, interpret, and even direct them, the mandala becomes a pathway through various levels of consciousness to mystic union with the center, the vibrant core within us all, the source of all life. Approaching the center of the mandala, you become your own guide on the road to spiritual transcendence and sexual fulfillment.   more…


The Dream Messenger

The Dream Messenger: How Dreams of the Departed Bring Healing Gifts
by Patricia Garfield, Ph.D. 

Buy used copies of this book in the USA from Amazon.com.

“Sooner or later, all of us will have to endure the trauma of the death of a significant person in our lives…Regardless of your beliefs about whether there is an afterlife or not, one thing is certain: you will dream about the person who recently died.”

Patricia Garfield, Ph.D. has always been on the cutting edge of dream research. In The Dream Messenger, the author of the classic book Creative Dreaming shows us how to interpret our dreams of our lost loved ones, whether they departed recently or long ago, and how these dreams can nourish and enrich our waking lives.

Whether these dreams are actual contact with spirit or images conjured up by our own needs is not the issue: what we know is that we dream about the people we have lost, and that these dreams are extraordinarily vivid and emotionally charged and can alter the life and belief system of the dreamer. In the dream world, unfinished dialogues can be completed and conflicts resolved.  more…
