Children's Dreams with Guest Kelly Bulkeley May 28 at 11:00am ET

Why is it so hard to remember dreams?  Scientific evidence dating back to the 1950's has shown the brain is active in various ways throughout the sleep cycle.  Yet when we wake up we often can't remember more than a few fleeting images that disappear from our minds almost immediately.  Why can't we recall more of what we experienced while asleep? Our guest, this week, will help us understand why we dream and how dreams can help us unlock our creativity and make sense of our lives.

As a child, Dr. Kelly Bulkeley was not particularly interested in dreams, but as a teenager he experienced a series of recurrent nightmares in which he was chased and attacked by frightening antagonists, including the uber-villain Darth Vadar of the "Star Wars" movies.  These nightmares literally forced their way into his waking awareness and prompted what has become a lifelong fascination.  So much so, he earned a doctorate in Religion and Psychological Studies from the University of Chicago Divinity School and has written and edited several books on dream research.
