Co-authors Burk and O'Keefe-Kanavos share their book about exploring dreams as a spiritual source of healing and inner guidance for health and well-being.
A vivid, more real-than-real dream that wakes you up and later comes true is one of the most awe-inspiring experiences a human being can have. It can be a life-changing event, especially when the dream is a compelling early warning sign of serious illness that leads to life-saving medical intervention. This unexpected intuitive information may actually prompt conventional diagnostic studies that turn out positive despite a lack of symptoms.
Larry Burk, MD, is a holistic radiologist from Duke University Medical Center whose co-author, Kathleen O'Keefe-Kanavos, is one of the 18 dreamers from his research study of women who had warning dreams about their breast cancers. The book highlights those dreams and also includes dreams about brain, colon, lung, ovarian, prostate, skin, testicular, tongue, and uterine cancers.
Dr. Burk will discuss some of the cases from the book to illustrate the important features of warning dreams. There are additional dreams that provide guidance for healing. He will describe the importance of keeping a dream diary, ways to get information about your health, and how to share the insights with your doctor. There also be some guidelines provided for how to interpret your own dreams.
