An amaryllis adorns her desk. The beautiful, open flower is pink. Shocking pink. Vibrant pink… I want the pink flowers for  myself.

“The dream was a remedy encapsulated in an image rather than in a pill.” — Dreams and the Wisdom Within


Part memoir, part scientific manual, part spiritual guide, Dreams and the Wisdom Within weaves a compelling narrative of the healing and transformative power of dreams.

Drawing on decades as a journalist and personal experience with dreams, Joyce Lynn outlines a three-step healing blueprint and envisions a future of health care with dreams at the core.




Dreams and the Wisdom Within empowers women, those most often disenfranchised by traditional medicine, custom, and mores.

“Your book surprised me. It was not what I expected. I thought it would be all about dreams. It is, but it is so much more. {You describe} nocturnal offerings, gifts from deep within our psyche, our soul. {Dreams and the Wisdom Within} is part science, part research, part memoir . . . .”  — Roberta Teller, host, Wise Woman Storytime

From primitive times through the healing temples of early Greece and the holy books of the Near East to the Age of Enlightenment when reason trumped spirituality, dreams held prominence in thriving civilizations. Historic events in the evolution of consciousness suppressed the viability of dreams, limiting their influence for generations.

Joyce revives dreams as a mandatory modality in our daily lives. She demystifies dreams and offers a contemporary approach to dreams and their essential role in our daily lives for positive health, self expression, relationships, and social change. The stories she tells extract dreams from the confines of religion, psychotherapy, and New Age customs, making dreams, studded amulets of ancient cultures, fashionable again.
