by Jeremy Taylor, DMin

Anyone familiar with Buddhism knows some version of the story: young Prince Siddhartha is raised in imperial luxury, and carefully and systematically protected from all conscious knowledge of sickness, old age, and death. Then his charioteer - (some say this charioteer is Krishna, reprising his role as teacher/charioteer in the Bhagavad Gita) - takes him outside the false Disneyland of palace life, built on the “sand” of self-deception, repression, and denial – and shows him the world as it is...

 

Editor's Note: It is always interesting to understand dreams as they are perceived and used in spiritual traditions different from our own. In this article, Jeremy shows us that, in Tibetan Buddhism, lucid dreaming is "the single most important spiritual skill to acquire and cultivate."

 

Dream Medicine


by David Kahn, PhD

When faced with a medical issue, do you reach for the phone to call a doctor? Reach into the medicine cabinet for a pill or medicine? Or do you reach within--to the natural processes that produce our artistic impulses and our dreams?...

 

Editor's Note: In this article Dr. David Kahn uses the theory of self-organization to take a unique approach to the dreaming brain and its creative and healing potential.

 

Dream Medicine


by Ryan Hurd, MA

For years, I was tormented by dreams of being chased by wolves and packs of angry dogs. Usually I would wake up from fright, but sometimes not before one of them sunk their teeth into me or scratched at my hands and face.

In waking life, I’m a dog lover who raised and trained several dogs. In particular, I helped raise a beautiful Alaskan Malamute/German Shepard mix named Bandit who was also a quarter wolf...

 

Dream Medicine


by Rev. Nancy Huslage, MA,
ATH Co-Editor of Dream Medicine

As a chaplain and Interfaith minister, I am often asked to facilitate bereavement support groups. The time following the loss of someone special is like being on a roller coaster of intense emotions. I have found that dreams can be a profound source of healing for the grieving person...

 

Editor's Note from Nancy Huslage: The grieving process can be difficult. Paying attention to your dreams during this time can be very helpful.

 

Dream Medicine


by Cynthia A. Greb, MLA,
ATH Co-Editor of Dream Medicine

As background on my life currently, let me say that I have temporarily moved back home to assist in the transitions of my parents. My father, after several years struggling with Alzheimer’s and more recently Parkinson’s as well, was recently admitted to a nursing home.  After a couple weeks there he fell and experienced a rather pronounced decline...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Those of you interested in dream themes may find this article interesting. During the month of December, I had six or seven dreams about the Goddess. Clearly the Divine Feminine is calling to me (and perhaps to all of us.) What have you been dreaming about lately? I'd love to hear.

 

Dream Medicine


by Valley Reed

I see an image of an ancient stone gateway, with a stone guardian statue that I recognize as being from a period that Robert Moss would know. It is the body of a lion and the head of a woman and is more in the style of Greek sculptures. I swing through the goddess gateway and find myself at the dream teacher retreat...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Valley Reed was a former co-editor of this Dream Medicine page.  I found her quite "by accident" as I was searching Google for "sacred dreams" and "dreams of power."  Valley certainly is a very powerful dreamer, and like all good dreamers, she honors her dreams by acting on them.  Here is a beautiful example of a series of dreams which led her to move to her new and beloved home where today she facilitates dream circles and other beautiful events.

 

Dream Medicine


by Patti Allen

Dreamers unite! It is time to take back your power. Be a “radical” when it comes to your dreams, and don’t accept the status quo! You may think that you don’t understand your dreams but all that you need is inside you. You know enough. You do not need to defer to some random authority or trend in dream work...

 

Editor's Note: Take back your dreams! In this passionate article Patti Allen calls on people to trust their relationship to their dreams and their ability to learn from them. After all, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain!

 

Dream Medicine


by Valley Reed

I walked into the local watering hole the other night for some open mic fun, and sat myself down at the bar to order a glass of wine. Sitting there taking in the scene, I noticed a man down the bar from me who looked positively terrified after making eye contact with me. I then noticed he was crossing himself and praying...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: We are approaching a holiday/season known by most of the American populace as Halloween. Those of Celtic origin or pagan persuasion know it as Samhain and those of Latin American descent call it Dia de los Muertos - or, Day of the Dead. In this article by former Dream Medicine co-editor and powerful dreamer, Valley Reed, we read about both waking life and dream encounters with those "on the Other Side" of this reality. Enjoy!

 

Dream Medicine


by Carol Warner

Bonnie was working with me for severe depression following the death of her mother and her separation from her husband. About one year into therapy, she became very concerned about her daughter, who was showing unusual behavior patterns, a number of which were possibly indicative of sexual abuse problems. Jennifer’s behavior could be related to adolescent issues, the recent separation of her parents, and her mother’s depression...

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Talk by expert/author Robert Bosnak.  "An Approach to the Dream."  Good.

 

Dream Medicine


by Ryan Hurd

Listening to warning dreams can save your life, so it's important to know what to look for. Unfortunately, we often notice these warnings long after the dream sounds its alarm. And the last thing I want to promote is a sense of paranoia about our dreams. So here are my tips for recognizing possible prodromal dreams...

 

 

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Tzivia Gover

I woke one morning from a dream in which I had been left behind by a group of people that I wanted to be friends with. Just then, my friend, Claudia, appeared in the dream and took my hand...

 

Editor's Note: Big dreams are exciting and sought after. But sometimes all it takes is the faintest fragment of a dream to change a day for the better. In this short personal essay I reflect on the healing synchronicities that were generated by paying attention to just such a dream fragment.

DREAM MEDICINE
Dream Mirrors of the Self

by Robert Moss

One of the most important gifts of our dreams is that they put us in touch with more aspects of ourselves than we have recognized in what Yeats called our “daily trivial minds.” Among these aspects is the famous Shadow, composed of parts of our selves we have repressed or denied (and tend to project on to others in regular life, till we awaken). But we encounter much more than the Shadow. We encounter a whole family of aspects of ourselves, and as we recognize them and bring them together we become much more than we were.
