Complaints about the difficulty in sleeping have been skyrocketing in the last decade, with insomnia becoming the norm rather than the exception. Changes in the tempo and pressure of modern life no doubt play their part here, but what of the psychical sources of lack of sleep?What is it that allows us to sleep and what, then, can disrupt this? What role do dreams play as ‘guardians of sleep’ and what is it that wakes us up?
