Author’s ‘dreams’ book is subject of talk at Booklovers’ Gourmet

Author Kathleen Webster O’Malley will appear at Booklovers’ Gourmet on November 12th.

One of life’s most mysterious phenomena, dreams, will be explored in depth at Booklovers’ Gourmet, 72 E. Main St., Webster, on Saturday, November 12th when Author Kathleen Webster O’Malley appears to discuss her book “The Healing Wisdom of Dreams.”
The event is scheduled for 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase and may also be pre-ordered by contacting the store at 508-949-6232 or [email protected].
Described as “a guide to trusting in the wisdom of our nightly visions,” Ms. Webster O’Malley’s book tells how engaging with our dream world can give us a sense of direction, and help us to heal past and current hurts—including pre-birth trauma.
When we understand and engage with our dreams, we are able to tap into a special, deeper kind of healing, the author says. “The process of healing is not about putting the same pieces back together; rather, it is about reclaiming what is already within us that could never be broken, the essence of who we are as individuals and as interconnected parts of a greater whole.”
Ms. Webster O’Malley, a health and wellness practitioner, provides specific tools for enhancing dream recall. These include dream journaling. She brings in the practices of dream incubation: how to ask our dream a question and receive and interpret an answer—lucid dreaming. She talks about Tibetan dream yoga practices.
Nightmares, she says, are inevitable “when we start to dive deeper into our vulnerabilities and traumas.” She discusses how to re-vision them as urgent messages that serve to deliver compassion and encourage others to align with their innermost wisdom to live with greater integrity, intention and purpose.
