by Barbara Platek, MA

A woman brings a dream in which she is awakened by the sound of someone—a woman–howling in the woods behind her house. In her dream it is nighttime, of course. It is always nighttime in a dream when there is something about which we are not fully conscious. Behind this woman’s house there is a woods—much like there is behind all of our houses...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Here Jungian psychotherapist and author, Barbara Platek, talks about the dreams that are perhaps most important to our psyche - the ones that make us aware of how unhappy we are and what we must do to change.  Is there a part of you that is howling to be heard?

 

Dream Medicine


by Wendy Pannier

Understanding the connection between dreams and healing started in ancient times and for thousands of years received respect. It later went through a period of benign--and sometimes not so benign--neglect. Today it is resurfacing as a new force in integrative medicine...

Our depth story comes into being as the moving woof threads of our personal themes are woven together with the stationary warp threads of the universal human and divine themes...

 


by Laura Baughman, RN, CDT

Breathless with my heart racing I charge up the stairs. Higher and higher I climb the spiraling staircase knowing my pursuer is just steps behind me. Finally I reach the top only to find myself trapped in a room full of closed doors. I can see the shadow of my pursuer growing larger as it approaches closer and closer...

 

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: In a nightmare something as seemingly as innocuous as a sock monkey can turn terrifying. In this article Laura Baughman, RN, CDT, uses her own experience confronting a nightmare to demonstrate some basic principles of dream work, and how this practice can lead to deeper self-knowledge and growth.

 

Dream Medicine


by Jean Raffa

Dreamwork has been my most rewarding and consistent spiritual practice for 22 years. You might not think of dreams as having anything to do with spirituality but they absolutely do. Carl Jung demonstrated this with exquisite beauty in his recently published The Red Book in which he recorded some of his most meaningful waking and sleeping dreams...

 

Editor's Note: Dreams can be the basis for a unique, personal, and fully empowered spiritual practice, as author Dr. Jean Raffa explains in this article.

 

Dream Medicine


 

Editor's Note: Dream Yoga is an ancient practice for bringing awareness to our lives awake and asleep. This is an excellent introduction to Dream Yoga from one of the masters of the practice.

 

Dream Medicine 


by Jeremy Taylor

All children dream, and sometimes those dreams are nightmares. What can you do to help your child deal with frightening dreams? Talk with them. Don't tell them it's “just a dream.” Take it seriously.

 

If your child asks what you think the dream means, I always tell them that all I (or anyone) can do is imagine the dream they are sharing with me for myself, and go on from there to think and feel about what it means.


by Layne Dalfen, Dream Analyst

The late Dr. Montague Ullmans' approach, commonly referred to as the “If this were my dream” method is what I want to discuss in this article. Dr. Ullman, like all of us, was faced with a dilemma when working with a group of people doing dreamwork, a situation he found himself in constantly. His wonderful approach is today, a standard practice in respecting the boundaries of the dreamer, making sure the dreamer's meaning of their dream remains theirs to decide...

 

Editor's Note: With the proliferation of online dream groups these days, it's more important than ever for dreamers to learn guidelines for responding sensitively and effectively to the dreams of others. In this article Layne Dalfen describes the classic "If it were my dream" technique.

 

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 Pamela Muller

My personal experience with dreams as a self-healing tool is what has drawn me to my calling as a dream interpreter. My dreams helped me navigate through a very difficult five year period in my life. During that journey, I was lost. I lost faith in God and had no one to turn to. In my isolation, I began to pay attention to my dreams because that world seemed so distant from the nightmare of my waking life...

 

Dream Medicine


by Leora K. Satie

I advocate instead for snoozing as a spiritual practice.

Always a dreamer and a snoozer, day or night, for as far back as I can remember, how wonderful it is to be connected these days with my Tribal sisters and brothers who also follow this different drum...

 

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Let’s hear it for snoozing! Leora K. Satie’s piece is light-hearted in tone, but the message is definitely worth taking to heart. Sleep is valuable, and it’s about time it was valued in our society, as well!

 

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
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.
