What Guides our Dreams?
There are many theories that explain why we dream, although one aspect continues to present us with a mystery. What is it that guides our dreams? Join Kari Hohne as she explores Freud's idea of the Id, Jung's writings about the Self, natural processes and spiritual perspectives that can help us understand the guiding mechanism of our dreams.
