My Dream Interpretation Expertise

I’m a sought-after speaker and respected dream interpreter, teacher, writer, and consultant. My easy-to-grasp concepts have been the subjects of numerous media appearances and scientific journals. I am the writer of the Understanding Dreams column at Psychology Today and I am known as the Dream Catcher at Oprah Daily.

I am also the author of Have a Great Dream: Books 1 & 2, available in both paperback and on Kindle.

Layne Dalfen presented a dream interpretation workshop at Concordia University during the month of November of 2008, in which I attended as a student. Layne was interactive, energetic, and knowledgeable in her discipline of dream therapy. Layne introduced several theories, interpretations and respective insights on dream therapy and its uses. Her presence at Concordia university produced high energy and a positive environment for all the attendees. The entire workshop participants were thankful of her presence, which included, from her, a humble and humorous attitude throughout the course of the workshop.

Surrounded by a wealth of dream material Layne Dalfen elucidates a wide variety of ways to approach your dreams. She makes it abundantly clear how useful dreams can be in our struggles with daily life, and how our lives may be enriched, if only we take the time to read the subtitles, which appear to us at night. This book may lead to an entry way into a forgotten world of treasure. Layne Dalfen shows how dreams are the magma of creativity flowing constantly through the cracks of sleep.
