"I first met Rolling Thunder, a medicine man who lives
in Nevada, in 1970 and have since observed him conduct
several healing sessions and consultations. Once I
listened to him give instructions to a client who had come
for dream interpretation. Instead of telling the client what
the dream meant, Rolling Thunder asked the client to imagine
himself as each of the characters in the dream so that he
would be able to interpret the dream himself. He gave him
the tools rather than the answers."
-Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
