Late one night, I walked on a street in Santa Fe, New Mexico, as large snow flakes swirled and settled softly upon the town. Only a few people were seen wandering aimlessly on the sidewalks and upon the deserted streets themselves. There was light from street lamps and from inside of closed shops that housed wonderful art and sculptures.

Dreams and Lives in Ottoman Istanbul explores the practices of life writing and narration of dreams in early modern Istanbul. It focuses on the prominent biographer Atai (d.1635) who presents a fascinating portrait of contested lives at a time of empire building and shows how seventeenth-century learned circles narrated dreams to assess their position in the Ottoman enterprise. The author argues that dreams provided Ottoman biographers with a means of debating an uncertain world, a world built on diverse social networks and competing world views. Through an engaging and accessible prose style, this book introduces a world where dreams changed lives, the dead appeared in broad daylight, and biographers invited their readers to the gardens of remembrance. Early modern cultural historians who work on life writing, dreams, and practices of remembrance will find Dreams and Lives in Ottoman Istanbul a timely and useful contribution. Comparative studies in economic and political life in Habsburg Spain, Safavid Iran, Mughal India and Ming China have shown the shared rhythms between these contemporaneous dynasties and the Ottomans, and there is now a strong interest in comparative approaches to examining cultural lives. In this first monograph on the early modern Ottoman dreamscape, the author aims to address this interest, engaging in a dialogue with the recent scholarship on the early modern cultural history.

In 1992 Alexandra De Avalon's son David was killed in an automobile accident. Soon after, she felt his presence, and their spiritual journey began. David has communicated to his mother what happened after his physical death. He validates that he is still alive through miracles that have never stopped. Alexandra shares in a very candid way her spiritual journey and what she does to help heal her grief.
When David made his transition, Alexandra De Avalon had a turning point in her life. She became a healer. This insightful book is about hope, miracles, and encouraging a spiritual healing process with grief.
"Breaking through the myth of death to the meaningfulness of the continued spiritual connection with those we love, Alexandra's exquisitely written journey invites us into a universal spirituality from Ancient Mayan ritual to love's transformative power. Her words awaken the beauty of prayer, hope, family, faith, and everyday miracles as they affirm the quality of life that unfolds as we listen to the wisdom of our hearts.
If you know someone who has lost a loved one, give the gift of hope and share this book with them."
