Her follow up, The Master of Lucid Dreams, continued her exploration of healing stories and presented a radically new approach to the healing of traumas. After more than a decade away from the public eye, Yahontova has returned with Michael Gate to start a new series of transformational books stemming from her personal, extraordinary experiences. She currently works as a forensic psychiatrist in a facility for the criminally insane. From her recent interview: I construct the narratives of my stories to make them sort of a Rosetta Stone for collective imagination, so they become a tool to interpret the matters of the Invisible and to translate its most hidden elements into the matters of everyday life and vise versa.
