Dr. Dorothea Hover-Kramer is a psychotherapist and co-founder of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology. She has written Second Chance at Your Dream as a guide for healing, cleansing, and renewing. She works with ayurvedic energy centers, called chakras, to promote health and increase energy; to change destructive thought patterns and usher in freshness and vitality. The fifteen chapters include introduction and explanation of the body’s seven major chakras and exercises to promote health in each of them. Hover-Kramer quotes therapist, Susan Taylor: “Going to the outside for your energy source, you will always be disappointed because it doesn’t last. Finding knowledge within is what is going to sustain your vital energy.” Drawing from Eastern philosophies and practices of meditation and guided imagery, one has the ability to release that vital energy, and to flow with it into peace, happiness and fulfillment.

Second Chance at your Dream provides a glossary of terms to help with understanding key concepts. The recommended exercises are not only given in step-by-step format, they are pictured to help with their implementation. Suggested readings and additional resources are offered in the back of the book. It is the hope of the author that we will open ourselves to the mysteries that surround us, allowing them to inspire us, and lend shape to our dreams.
