Editorial Reviews


MENSA BULLETIN Feb. 2012 Tom Elliot
"You'll be relieved to know that dreams have a system. Baylis proposes that associative thinking and the Complexity Science Theory are the single deterministic factors that form order out of this seeming chaos."

Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite
    "A better understanding of myself and my dreams. The exercises are numerous and fun to do."
     "Baylis's style of writing and organization is very easy to read and follow. The real examples of dreams ...kept me wanting to read more. A must read for anyone interested in dreams."


Chapter 3 applies Complexity Science to dreams bringing “Order out of Chaos”. An analogy shows how dreaming process has a tree-like structure – roots to fruits. Each limb and its branches has a chapter with practice exercises. “These exercises are fun.” said Pat.
“And practical too!” said Richard.

More About the Author

Janice Baylis, PhD., born in 1928, is a retired Reading Specialist Teacher and Community College Dream-study Instructor.
In 1959 her car-pool passenger, Mabel, phoned at 6am asking to change their meeting spot to around the corner. That same morning at 7am Mabel was getting into Janice's car. They heard a loud CRASH!
They rounded the corner and passed their regular meeting spot. There was a small airplane landed upside down in the corner of the store parking lot WHERE THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN! Mabel explained that she had dreamed it during that night.
Mabel's life-saving, pre-cognitive, warning dream started Janice on her life-long, self-directed and academic study of dreaming. Her student's dreams and the Edgar Cayce dream material focused Janice on the practical side of dreaming. At prodding from her students in 1977 she authored "SLEEP ON IT! The Practical Side of Dreaming".
BA in Education, Occidental College 1950.
MA in Psychology, Pepperdine University 1979.
PhD. in Psychology, Columbia Pacifica University 1981.
As a Reading Specialist Teacher Janice worked with the phonics system to teach children to read English. English has 44 sounds and 26 letters. Associating the 44 sounds with letters on a page is complex because each letter may have several sounds depending on what other letters are present.
Working with this system tuned Janice's mind to see complicated associations. So, she learned to understand how dream thinking makes meaningful associations. This dream-mind thinking is what she teaches in "DREAM DYNAMICS AND DECODING: Personal, Practical Messages"
Janice says, "Helping teach 3,000 children to read is my passport to Heaven."

Format: Paperback
If anyone is looking for an eclectic treasure trove of information on dreams and dreaming, then you need look no farther than Dr. Janice Baylis’ Dream Dynamics and Decoding. A book which will delight both professional and amateur alike, Dream Dynamics takes you on an inner journey to discover the workings of the dreaming mind.
Inspired by a friend’s dream that literally saved the author’s life, Dr. Baylis writes about dreams from the heart, avoiding the stiffness and rigidity found in many other dream manuals. Yet, let me be very clear; this text also brings into the reader’s purview clear and precise explanations of the dream psychologies of Freud, Jung, and a host of others, presented in a non-threatening way which will benefit and enrich beginners in this field of study. Several examples and exercises are given to bring to light various methods of interpretation. As an added feature, Dr. Baylis points to rare historical anecdotes to illustrate how those who paid attention to their dreams not only were changed personally by them, but altered the world in light of them.
As a professor, I truly appreciate the time and effort Dr. Baylis has given to this work. From her first lesson on “Keeping a Dream Journal,” to her last on “Incubation and Lucidity,” I am confident that my students will find the information presented in this book to be of tremendous value.
