"...As a licensed psychologist and practitioner for 40 years, I consider myself knowledgeable about dreams and their interpretation. I have yet to meet anyone who could deliver this material as usefully and intelligently as Layne does. Both through information and demonstration, Layne makes the material come alive. She has a depth of understanding of dreams and dream interpretation that I have not found in a great many psychologists, social workers or psychiatrists. This is truly her area of expertise that she has devoted herself to for decades. She is a grand master..."
James Gavin, Ph.D., ABPP, FACP Concordia University, Montreal

Have a Great Dream

Decoding Your Dreams to Discover Your Full Potential


Dalfen creates a powerful new approach to dream interpretation that combines insight from Freud, Adler, Jung and Gestalt Physchology. Her method reveals four levels of dreaming that can be accessed to fully interpret and benefit from a dream:

  • Looking into the Mirror: Discovering the problem or issue the dream is addressing.
  • Using the Whole Mind: Learning how a dream can show us hidden blocks to progress.
  • Discovering Patterns: Recognizing how patterns in dreams reflect patterns in one’s waking life.
  • Tapping into Spiritual Resources: Identifying symbols and working with them to achieve objectives.

“I have just finished reading Have a Great Dream, which I found very intriguing and informative. It gives the readers practical tools to begin the journey of interpreting and understanding the meaning of their dreams. I enjoyed Layne Dalfen’s conversational and friendly manner to write about her life experience with dream interpretation. Her books open a door for the readers to walk out into the field and see the landscape of their own personal human experience, and is an invitation to explore it.”

L. Torres, Arlington, VT

“I thoroughly enjoyed Have a Great Dream: Using Your Dreams To Discover Your Full Potential. Ms. Dalfen really shows you how to get inside yourself by understanding your dreams. For a lot of people this isn’t necessarily an easy thing to do because some might not like everything they see, but the author gives us the inspiration by showing us how she did it herself. And you know, maybe she didn’t like everything she found either, but she got through it. This was the main thing that showed me that I could do the same. This isn’t like those other feel good self help books. If you really want to put in the hard work it takes to understand yourself and change your life Layne gives you the tools to do it.”

Jena English

“These books’ strength is its accessibility and down-to-earth style. Throughout the text the reader has a sense of having a private conversation with Dalfen whose style is friendly, colloquial and upbeat. Anyone who is new to working with their dreams will find a refreshing and demystifying explanation of how dreams contain treasures for us both in how to understand ourselves better and in offering solutions to the problems in our lives.”

Mary Harsany, C. G. Jung Society, Montreal

“I liked Layne’s books because she gives various approaches to understanding and using your dreams. A lot of other authors will give you a pretty rigid set of steps to follow, and if they don’t work for you, tough luck. (Even worse, dream dictionaries tell you exactly what your dream means, regardless of who you are or what your life experiences have been!) Layne gives you different approaches and exercises to try, so if one doesn’t work you can try another. Or you can go through all the exercises with your dream, so that you keep arriving at a new, deeper understanding of the dream. And once you know what the dream means, Layne also gives you different exercises for using your dream to work out your problems and improve your life. Of the different self-help books I’ve read, this is one of the few that really help. Highly recommended ”

Debbi, Norwalk, CT

“I’ve been meaning to write to you for five weeks now… even since I came home from the conference and read your books. The day after reading it I had a dream where I was trapped and unsavory guys came out to grab me, kidnap-torture-&kill me. I was too exhausted and too trapped to run. I naturally woke up upset – then decided to look at it from Layne’s method…..And it all came so easily because of reading your books!!!
Layne, your books are the best. It’s so clear and practical and right on the mark. Much love and admiration and thankfulness…”


“Layne Dalfen demystifies the world of dreaming and makes discovering the wisdom of dreams more accessible.”

Alan Siegel, Ph.D., author, Dream Wisdom, and past president of the Association for the Study of Dreams

“Dalfen shares her journey of self- discovery through dreams, while leading dreamers to their unique version of the universal quest.”

Patricia Garfield, Ph.D., author, Creative Dreaming and The Universal Dream Key: The 12 Most Common Dream Themes Around the World

“These books may lead to an entryway into a forgotten world of treasure.”
