Description

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, people have reported unusually vivid and bizarre dreams that frequently feature the virus. The book “Pandemic Dreams” draws on Dr. Barrett’s survey of over 9,000 dreams about the COVID-19 crisis. It describes how dreaming has reflected each aspect of the pandemic: from fear of illness, to sheltering at home, to work and school changes, to increased isolation or crowding. Barrett offers practical exercises for dream interpretation and reduction of nightmares, as well as suggestions for dealing with disturbing dreams.
