This is an important book for all of us concerned about the precognitive elements of our dreams, a possibility now well-established in science labs of the world. We learn that dreams may contain warnings of disastrous events that go well beyond those affecting our earthly parents to those affecting our own dear Mother Earth. ~ Sally Rhine Feather, Ph.D., Director, Rhine Research Institute
The basic need of our time is to restore the primacy of our DNA over our brain. Judy Gardiner’s book Lavender is a welcome sign that this restoration is underway. Dreams are the voice of our DNA; they offer us an exhilarating perspective on ourselves and the Universe that contains us. You need to know this. ~ Robert A. Keller, Ph.D.
Lavender is an odyssey into the soul of a protagonist who finds the key to dream interpretation. As multiple dream symbols cohere into biological, geological and spiritual narratives, Lavender transmits the experience of self and world as an indivisible unity. We have much to learn of the wisdom of the dream from this intricate work by a master dreamer.” ~ Melanie Starr Costello, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst
Reading Lavender is a voyage into a range of our dreaming psyche that reaches beyond the mundane, calling attention to the corruption of our environment, which has gathered speed during the nuclear age. The author has done with the intrinsic honesty of dreams what Al Gore and others have done with hard scientific facts. ~ Montague Ullman, M.D.
What Judy Gardiner has experienced and written is a reality of the multiple aspects of consciousness that are open to all of us in varying degrees. Led to snatch onto dreams she wanted to understand, opened her to study scientifically-based research that rolled into a greater challenge for more knowledge about what she was dreaming and its importance to share. ~ Rita Dwyer, International Association for the Study of Dreams
Any reader who enjoys puzzles will love this book. This is a thoroughly enjoyable read and a challenging exercise in recognizing linkages and fitting the pieces together. It is a fanciful and scintillating adventure peppered with learned guides from the past. It tells an important cautionary tale about becoming better stewards of the Earth. Simply wonderful. ~ Gail Cato, Create Space Publishing

Lavender, then, is not simply about a warning, but about engendering an experience. Its initial pursuit through broken logic, fragmentary imagery and clues in order to discover their correct reference and meaning--this process broke up my ordinary thought coherence too, making an opening for the unity consciousness beyond ego. It moved my own experience of reality into a transcendent, more whole place. While engaging with this story, I felt a joyful peace and a synchronistic mode of knowing and action come in. I believe this is much of the point, that this kind of consciousness is available to those who "grab the handles" that their dreams present, and learn to ride this "bike". I am delighted by this book and find it empowering, even as it presents critical warnings about the state of our earth. As we come to know the earth as one with ourselves, literally like our own body inside, we too may find it natural to act in ways which can avert catastrophic consequences and above all, move into a more enlightened future.
Judy is a prolific dreamer and her dreams fall into two categories......personal dreams abnd cosmic dreams. While most of us take our day to day life for granted and merely accept what has or will happen to us on both a short term and long term basis, Judy has developed or has been blessed with an abiliity to see into the future via her dreams so that she can better understand the ramifications. However, her dreams and talents do not merely pertain to the future or even the present.......she has become an expert on certain elements of the past. Her theories and understanding of the tragedy of the Titanic in 1912 bring a whole new perspective to this part of history. Her knowledge and insight into the French scientist Madam Curie and the significance of her research and discoveries are remarkable. These are just a few examples from her book.
Based on her dreams, Judy's warnings of what the earth's population is doing to our environment cannot be ignored. Sure, man has only been on this planet for a very small percentage of the earth's existence, but the amount of dangerous elements man has created and the rate at which we continue to create these dangers, leaves us wondering if it is too late. Hopefully, Judy's warnings will be heeded in time.
Based on her dreams, Judy's abilities are indeed extraordinary. While she feels she is just an ordinary person who dreams, her abilities and depth of understanding are far beyond normal compared to the rest of us.
While most people do not remember their dreams or are afraid of the symbolism and ramifications, the reality as shown by Judy/Penepole is that dreams can be very healing.
This is indeed a very special book which deserves reading and understanding and reflection. It helps to explain some of the unique powers and forces of our world which most of us do not understand. Judy uses her dream experiences to help us understand a little more.
This book is inspirational and boundary expanding with a major role in developing the emerging paradigms required for inner and outer ecological survival. It beautifully integrates diverse concepts on dreams and how they facilitate our connectivity throughout space-time and other dimensions.

How Judy integrates multiple wisdoms and weaves them into the story: science, astrology, spirituality reads like a thriller with more information about the plot on every page. If you want to engage in your world of dreams, this book will give you a profound knowledge of the treasures to be found there.
