The DREAMS Foundation and You
Every person on Earth dreams every night, and
we all end up passing about a third of our lives in sleep. It
follows that there must be something very important going on while
we sleep and dream, yet in the industrialized world, we generally
pay little attention to our dreams. Gathered here is a look at
some ancient ideas and recent discoveries that seem to be in great
need in our culture, and for which there has been a steadily growing
demand. We are glad to be able to share with you this overview
of the results from many years of study and research, and truly
hope you will consider personally experimenting with dream
recall and incubation, and the applications
of dreams and lucid dreams.
The DREAMS Foundation is a non-profit organization,
which offers services for both the public and for health and science
professionals, some of which are offered at no charge such as
this web site. We have compiled and brought you what we have seen
to be very valuable, practical information, though the results
may not be immediately apparent. If you find it helpful, we truly
hope that you will consider supporting the Foundation by
making a donation. This will enable us to continue
providing this service for others and to improve the range and
quality of the services we offer.
We genuinely appreciate your interest, welcome
and thank you for joining us on what we hope will be for you a
fascinating exploration and adventure of rediscovery into what
is quite often the forgotten third of life.
