Special Feature by Atlas Poetica

Dream Alchemy 

DREAMS HAVE BEEN WIDELY LINKED TO INSPIRATION. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, it is believed that there are six intermediate stages in living and dying. Each of these ‘in-between’ phases is called the bar-do and it is viewed as a powerful stage for awakening and discovering the heart of enlightenment.

Are dreams important to your writing?

Do you use dreams in your writing?
