The Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation

The Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation - Clarissa Pinkola Estés A non-fiction read that I found fascinating even for its brief analysis/interpretation. I did like that Estes breaks down the dream interpretation into simple categories, and how to examine them (with examples in tow), while also blending her own experiences. However, I don't think it's a comprehensive guide to dreams, even for the beginner. Some dreams are far too complex to interpret by the categories that she gives alone (as a writer, I know I have far more complex dreams in the sense of creativity). However, she does emphasize good practices in order to remember one's dreams - writing them down being one of the key aspects of it. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, especially since Estes has such a pleasant, even dreamy voice.
