by Kirsten Backstrom, MA

At an in-patient hospice where I’ve volunteered for many years, I got to know a man named Jasper who was dying of lung cancer in his seventies. Over several weeks, he told me stories about growing up on a midwestern farm...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: In this article, Kirsten Backstrom, a hospice chaplain, discusses the dream that influenced a man's dying process.  She speaks of the distinctions between waking, dreaming, and deep sleep and how, as death approaches, those distinctions can break down completely. This is an important addition to the body of knowledge regarding Dreaming and Dying.

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Jeremy Taylor is widely regarded as an expert teacher and author in the field of Dreamwork.  Although this particular video talks specifically about dreamwork done within the context of Wisdom University, it is nevertheless informative to any of us who want to participate in dream circles.

A woman brings me a dream in which she goes to the doctor for a minor bladder irritation and is told that, while there, she might as well have her ovaries removed.  After all, says the dream doctor, she isn’t actually using her ovaries—she doesn’t need them—so why not simply have them out...


Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: In this article, Barbara Platek, Jungian psychotherapist, talks about the deep feminine ways of knowing and honoring ourselves and our dreams.

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

Sometimes we dream dreams that take hold of us and don’t let go. Sometimes the meaning isn’t always immediately clear, or perhaps there are many layers of meaning. Sometimes we uncover more clues to the dream’s meaning many years later...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Have you ever had a powerful dream and then some characters from that dream reappeared in a later dream?  This happened to me and this is the story of what transpired afterwards.

 

Dream Medicine


by Linda Yael Schiller, LICSW

Dreams usually arrive in our consciousness as conundrums.  We usually have to spend time hanging out with the dream material to unravel it’s coded messages.  As we get more skilled in attending to our dreams, we can get pretty good at it, especially if we can catch our own puns and plays on words.  Problem is, most dreams come to us fairly encrypted.  Just as we can often see some one else’s issues or truth more clearly than our own (who among us can’t identify (ahem…) just what our spouse, child, parent, etc. should do to be a better person!).  We often hit the same blind spot when we  attempt to decode our own dreams as we do when we try to see our own "issues" clearly...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Everyone who is serious about working with dreams will, at one time or another, probably sit in a Dream Circle.  Dream circles are such a wonderful way of mining the depths of our dreams with fellow dreamers.  In this article, psychotherapist Linda Yael Schiller gives some tips on how to create an effective dream circle.

Revolution: from the Latin revolutio, a turn around.

A woman tells me a dream in which she is invited to join the revolution of “she is worth her time.” Apparently, for this woman a revolution is in the making. A movement toward change is about to occur...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Barbara Platek, Jungian psychotherapist, shares a dream in which a patient is urged to join the revolution of "she is worth her time."  She speaks of our need to value ourselves and to feel our worthiness.  As always, the dream comes to aid us in our health and wholeness.

I rarely have nightmares, but last week I had a full-blown, truly scary nightmare...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am delighted to introduce Kirsten Backstrom. She is founder and director of Compass Dreamwork and is certified as a Dream Work Facilitator through the Marin Institute for Projective Dream Work (MIPD, Jeremy Taylor). She is also an interfaith spiritual director, hospice chaplain, teacher, etc. with more than thirty years' experience working with dreams. I think you will find her articles quite insightful.

Dream Medicine


by Jim PathFinder Ewing

The year's shortest day and longest night, the Winter Solstice, was celebrated with the next new dawn, as it was shown that the Sun had triumphed over darkness, the Sun had not been "eaten," but was born again. Some would drum throughout the night, lending their energy to keep the Sun alive...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am delighted to introduce to the Dream Medicine page Jim PathFinder Ewing, a Cherokee elder and author who has published several books in the fields of shamanism, healing, sustainable farming, and Native traditions.  In this article, Jim very wisely reminds us that this Winter Solstice season is naturally and ideally a time for turning inward and doing deep, sacred dreaming.  The Iroquois Nation modeled this for us. We who rush around ceaselessly preparing for cultural holidays have strayed far from this natural rhythm.  And it is to our detriment.

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.
