Tap into the magic of your dreams and discover better, more balanced sleep with this revelatory new book from Melinda Powell, Director of the Dream Research Institute.

We spend a third of our lives sleeping and, as new research would suggest, almost all of that is spent dreaming. Despite this, very few of us try to explore the messages that our brain is projecting, or try to use this knowledge in our everyday lives.

In The Magic of Dreams, psychoanalyst and Director of the Dream Research Institute, Melinda Powell, teaches us how to better remember, understand and interpret the dreams we have, and shows us how we can use this to improve our waking life.

As well as analysing the importance of dreaming for our sleeping brains, Powell discusses the role of light, landscapes, space and people within our dreams, examines the role of nightmares, dispels some common misconceptions and gives readers the tools to unpick these symbols, improve their mental wellbeing and discover better, more balanced sleep.
