A talk presented June 23rd, 2012, Berkeley, California

From her global collection of dream-art objects, Dr. Garfield shares stories showing how amulets are designed to repel nightmares and attract lucky dreams. She reveals characteristics common in traditional Dream Guardians and Guides, plus their usage for maximum effect. Today’s dreamers may thus design amulets for specific personal or psychotherapeutic situations.
