Born From The Dream: The Trajectory Of Children’s Dreaming From The Womb Forward

Every infant born appears to be emerging as if from the dream, when one weighs evidence from scientists who have penetrated the realm of sleep over the last sixty years. From the appearance of sleep cycling in the womb to the first signs of dream awareness in the young child, and to the blossoming dream life of the older child, a child’s capacity for experiencing the dream deepens. Dreams from two five-year-olds and their recurrence—one at age seven and one at age nine—observed in children’s dream journals, illustrate processes in children over large spans of time. (A slide presentation.)
