Dr. Angel Morgan, Ph.D.

Angel Kwan-Yin Morgan founded Dreambridge (thedreambridge.com) in 2008. She specializes in dreams, creativity, and the connection between the two (Dream-Arts). She has worked with adults, children, teens, and parents as a Dream-Arts educator since 1995. An interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker, she received her Ph.D. in Psychology after completing the Dream Studies and Creativity Studies programs at Saybrook University. Before that, she received an M.A. in Human Development from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, a B.A. in Theater, Film, and Television from UCLA, and is a graduate of the Idyllwild Arts Academy. 

Angel has worked professionally as an actor, director, dancer, singer-songwriter, and visual artist in Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chapel Hill, NC.  While raising her two children, she earned her teaching certification from the Rudolf Steiner College and a Quality Classroom certificate from the Institute of HeartMath. For five years she was a Waldorf class teacher in Los Altos, CA, where she taught all subjects (Grades 4 - 8) through storytelling, music, art, and drama, educated parents, and was the faculty co-artistic director. 

A recipient of the William Fadiman writing award, she is widely published and has written many dream psychology articles ranging from Cambridge Journals to The Huffington Post. In 2017, she won the Best Screenplay Award from The Buddha International Film Festival in India for a story filled with dreams, spiritual development, consciousness exploration, and humor. Dr. Morgan is an active member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, The American Psychological Association, and is a peer reviewer for the APA journal, Dreaming. She is an adjunct professor at Sofia University, where she co-instructs Global Ph.D. courses including The Psychology of Extraordinary Dreams with Dr. Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. 

An experienced lucid dreamer, she started learning about her own dreams when she was four years old from her father Robert F. Morgan, Ph.D., a psychologist who gave her tools from Kilton Stewart’s Senoi Dream Theory. Her other dream mentors as a teen and young adult were Eduardo Duran, Ph.D, and Clara Stewart Flagg, the widow of Kilton Stewart, Ph.D.
