Last night was my first night camping in a yurt. Everything was going fine. It had been rainy and damp, but then the sun came out and there was a beautiful rainbow. And I had a little heater and a comfortable bed with two warm comforters. So I was surprised when I had a stream of unpleasant dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Each of us seem to have "bad dreams" at some point in our lives.  And if we work with them in our waking life - either through dreamwork or with a therapist, we can usually find deeper meaning in them.  We can also work to become lucid within our dreams and work with the characters and content in that way. But what if this nightmare is too terrible to deal with? Or what if we are just truly needing a decent night of rest? What do we do then? In this article, I share some tips that worked for me. Sometimes we just want to get out of the nightmare. And I'm here to tell you that help is available.

 

Dream Medicine


by Beverly D’Urso, PhD

At this point, in both my waking state and in all my dreams, I aspire to fully experiencing my emotions instead of projecting them outwards or stuffing them inside. I don’t need to avoid them in order to appear more ‘mature’ or less ‘crazy.’ Dissolving or discharging them by experiencing them fully eventually leads me to a more peaceful and centered place...

 

 Editor's Note: Too often people separate the experiences they have in dreams from their actions in waking life. In reality there is much we can learn from the dream that can help us evolve and change in our daily lives. Dr. Beverly D’Urso offers practical guidance for tapping into the dream’s healing wisdom and using it in waking relationships.

Editor's Note: This video is a bit academic, but gives a great explanation of the importance that Carl Jung placed on understanding one's dreams.

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

Money. Its face, form and value has changed throughout time and within cultures, but not its function: it is used to exchange one thing for another, tangible or intangible, and we still need money to lead our lives in modern society. “Monetas” was the term assigned to coins produced in Juno’s temple, which contained the Roman mint...

 

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Rev. Karen Baldwin

During a recent interview for my hometown newspaper, I was asked, “How do you know the difference between a dream that has a real message, and a dream that is just messing with you?”...

 

Editor's Note: Karen provides valuable information in this article about the purpose of dreaming. She answers the question, "How do you know the difference between a dream that has a real message, and a dream that is just messing with you?"

 

Dream Medicine

The dreams were there even before I opened my eyes. In this one I was lost (not an uncommon dream) and searching for a Japanese restaurant that I eat in from time to time in waking life, called Zen. I woke that morning in a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, where I was staying while attending a 4-day intensive on dreams. I was one year into a dream certification process and I was remembering an average of 6-8 dreams a  night, plus recording all of them in my dream journal...

 

Editor's Note: When we begin to take an interest in our dreams we are often told that the first step in understanding our dreams is to write them down. In this article I explore some of the reasons why that simple instruction can have profound results.

by Kirsten Backstrom, MA

Following up on the theme of dream figures that I’ve been exploring in the last two posts (“The True Nature of Dream Figures,” and “Dream Messengers, Guides, And Guardians”): Another type of dream figure that can play a significant role in our lives is the Companion...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Oftentimes we are the primary protagonist in our dreams and we experience our dreams as a lone figure.  But sometimes we are blessed to have a dream companion. Here Kirsten Backstrom talks about this phenomenon.

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.

 

Dream Medicine


by Barbara Platek,MA

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.

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.

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.
