How can we make dreams more lifelike and life more dreamlike? Matt Cochran explores this question and teaches us the ineffable and mysterious power of dreamtime. Besides earning an MA in Depth Psychology, Matt is a lifelong student of ancient religions, rites of passage, and geology, making for a highly valuable and unique type of wisdom. We cover how to take your incredible imagination and use it as a generative force, why there’s no such thing as “just a dream”, and how a mythic identity can serve men.
