Course Description

Dreams are the stories the brain tells us when we are asleep. These collections of images, memories, and feelings occur involuntarily during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep, and they stir a myriad of responses in us. But where do they come from? How does your brain put things together to generate them? Professor Fowler will survey what modern dream theorists have to say in response to such questions and guide us through some techniques of dream interpretation. There are, after all, twenty-five different kinds of dreams according to some reckonings, and guidance in making sense of them is welcome. “To sleep, perchance to dream?” It’s likely, so allow OLLI and Professor Fowler to help you understand and cope with those night visitors.
