Dear website visitors,
After many years of online publishing, Dr. Patricia Garfield has retired from active participation in this website. (Comments, Questions and Newsletter features have therefore been removed.)
In honor of her many contributions to the psychology of dreaming, the site now serves as an archive of her scholarly and creative work, maintained by Dennis Rivers, MA, her friend, fellow dreamer and volunteer librarian.

Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau 

This section explores three dimensions of dream art:

the ebb and flow of imagery, creativity and meaning
     from everyday life into the world of our dreams,

the ebb and flow of imagery, creativity and meaning
     from the world of dreams into creative expression
               in our waking world, and,

imagery, music, poems and literature that are
     beautiful in a dream-inspiring way.
