    Wow, a wonderful interview to listen to. And I am only in the middle of it.

    I wish I could share it instantly on facebook but it seems there is no share button. Maybe I just don`t see it.

    Another great interview. What the interviewee says about “Tests Allies and Enemies” remind me of what I think your wife said to you regarding fairy tales, that mostly the stories appear to speak of cleverness.

    Great interview, and Iiked how you included her as even though she’s not an academic psychologist. There is a lot of documentation and research on how clinical Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy is effective in many areas, and often hypnotherapists have been called “Dream Pilots”. I loved the interview and actually would like to offer to transcribe this as a small way of saying thank you. I listen to this show a lot, and do so on my Blackberry synced with iTunes.

    I know what you mean when you said that Kelly has such a positive, inspiring energy. I was so influenced by it while I was having breakfast at a Food Centre here in Singapore, that I went up to acknowledge a teenager school girl who cleared my table and got that it was part of a volunteer project to experience and understand this work. I thought it was a brilliant project to raise awareness / consciousness of youth who are so very pampered in modern Singapore. I also saw an old acquaintance from Junior College, and perhaps on a regular day I wouldn’t have, but in the space of the interview you did, I went up to him to say hi, reintroduce and get reacquainted. and it went well!

    I have a 5 month old, and I’m really interested in how can I influence her to have good dreams, and in fact, one of the things I got from the interview is that perhaps I could encourage her to look forward to fulfilling sleeps and meaningful dreams. This would be a profound shift of how the average kid views sleep (I remember I used to think that sleep was a waste of time for much of my growing years).
