When our loved ones who have passed visit us in dreams, we realize our deepest joy and our deepest pain are the same. Rodger Kamenetz, the author of The Jew in the Lotus, the story of rabbis making a holy pilgrimage through India to meet with the Dalai Lama, joins Wendy to talk about dreamwork. Join us as Rodger and Wendy converse on the importance of not making meaning out of dreaming life occurrences and accepting the feelings you experience and tying them to your waking life.
