Sleep, it is something that we all do, but many of us do not do it well. Our modern sleep culture is fraught with unnatural customs, electronic distractions and medications which may be the cause of our sleep difficulties. Learning how to get a good night’s sleep has been shown to influence healthy states of mind and body. Kat Duff reveals many secrets of sleep, including insomnia, recurring dreams, and sleep walking in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast August 5, 2014.
Kat Duff, author of The Secret Life of Sleep, writes at the intersection of the natural world and the imagination as it occurs in the life our bodies. Whether she is discussing illness, scars or sleep, she illuminates common, intimate experiences that are often overlooked with a lyricism that makes the profane flare into sacredness. Kat works with traumatized children and adults, and finds solace in the open spaces and traditional cultures that surround her.
