About the Author
A native New Yorker and self-described 'dreamer', Bobbie Ann Pimm, began exploring the world of her dreams in 1988 when she concluded that two recurrent dreams were trying to tell her something important. She is currently living in Virginia with Bob Van de Castle, author of Our Dreaming Mind, after meeting him at an online IASD dream conference in September 2008.

I have ordered another copy to give away. It is one of my favorite books on dreaming!
In the beginning of the book, Pimm shares information in easily understandable language about dreams, followed by tips and techniques for working with dreams. We all dream every night, but may not think we do if we do not remember our dreams. The tips help in the remembering of dreams.
Why bother to remember dreams? "...Unless you are remembering and making sense of your dreams, you are missing out on countless opportunities to learn about yourself and experience life to its fullest," is the author's reply.
She stresses, though, never to ask someone else to interpret your dreams for you, because no one else knows you intimately enough to know the personal meaning to you of the symbols in your dreams. She shares some of her dreams and interpretations to illustrate the process for the reader. The symbol dictionary contains a variety of suggested interpretations for each symbol, with most of them "based on what Carl Jung referred to as the `shadow' side of our personalities and the archetypes of the `collective unconscious.'"
Concluding with resources and suggestions for further information, this book is a very good introduction into the study of dreams.
Notes from a dreamer...on Dreaming reads like you're having a very comfortable conversation with Bobbie about dreams and that type of personal feel makes for a very enjoyable and enlightening read. Bobbie uses many of her own dreams as examples to document her journey towards healing and also to share her style of dream interpretation giving the reader the sense that anyone can learn to interpret their own dreams.
Throughout her book, Bobbie shares many useful tips in working with your dreams and shares many dream resources that readers can immediately access to start working on their own dreams.
Bobbie's love of the dreamtime is apparent in every chapter of her book and I recommend Notes from a Dreamer... On Dreaming to anyone interested in working with their own dreams.
