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 Jeremy Taylor

The scientific evidence is overwhelming and unambiguous: all human beings dream, whether they recall these nightly adventures upon awakening or not.

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Jeremy Taylor believes as I do: our dreams are a way for the Divine to be in communion with us.  However, he also notes that many of the major world religions disparage actual "dreamwork."   Fortunately, this is beginning to change a bit in the West.

 

Dream Medicine


by Bambi Corso

It sounds a little odd since dreams happen when we’re asleep, right? So why would you want them to help you stay awake? Allow me to explain...

 

Editor's Note: People often ask what benefit they would receive from doing dream work. Bambi Corso, a dream worker and Life Work Specialist, offers one valuable reason in this article: to wake up to your life and life’s purpose.

 

Dream Medicine


by Tzivia Gover, C.D.T.

It is a difficult balance to achieve: Realizing that what matters to us most in the world is indeed precious and beautiful and wholly indispensible … but at the same time, all that really matters are the things that are invisible, formless and timeless. This dream dialogue has helped me see the situation from this perspective, and as much as possible to remember the big picture when I start to slip into worry and sadness.

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Linda Yael Schiller, LICSW

We don’t always notice whether or not we dream in color, unless something jumps out at us as we are writing or remembering the dream.  As we recall the dream, we may suddenly be struck by, (as I was last night) a very bright blue necklace.  This symbol has been gracing my dreams off and on for years, and I am still discovering it’s many layers of meaning.  Uncovering the significance of the colors in your dreams can add an important layer of emotional resonance that may otherwise be missed, or misinterpreted...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: In this wonderful article, psychotherapist Linda Yael Schiller explores the rich symbolism of color in our dreams.  Enjoy!

 

Dream Medicine


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.

 

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.

 

Dream Medicine


by Jeremy Taylor

When "death" appears in a dream, it is a very reliable indicator that the dreamer is growing and changing so profoundly that only the "death" of the old "me", (or part if "me"), is an adequate symbol of the psycho-spiritual process that is taking place...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Jeremy Taylor is widely regarded as an expert teacher and author in the field of Dreamwork.  He has wise words to say about the meaning of death, murder, and suicide in dreams.  Read on to see how this resonates with you.

 

Dream Medicine


by Robert Waggoner

A recurring health problem faced Karen (not her real name), who suffered from out of control menstrual bleeding. Her doctor noted its serious nature and suggested a hysterectomy, as the preferred medical solution. Then one night, as if by magic, the out of control menstrual bleeding ended. Realizing that she dreamed, Karen became consciously aware and lucidly sought to heal herself...

ATH Co-Editor of Dream Medicine

Erin Langley

"The first dream I remember happened in the apartment my family lived in until I was 18 months old. So, sometime when I was very young, I had a dream of three faceless figures sitting on a bench in a desert, in front of a building made of sand with swinging red doors. I guess it was a nightmare, because I screamed for my mom, “The folks are coming! The folks are coming!” It was very real. My dream life has always been vivid..."

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Periodically I will be interviewing people whom I know to be powerful dreamers and/or notable within the field of Dream Medicine. My first interview is with a women I met in grad school. The more I got to know Erin Langley, the more impressed I was with her wisdom and talent. (In addition to being a powerful dreamer, she is an exceptional artist.) I was further introduced to her Dreaming abilities during the course of our mutual immersion in the Indigenous Mind program.

 

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.

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.
