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...

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.

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


by Kirsten Backstrom, MA

This morning, I read something about the Buddhist perspective on “intention”—the importance of being clear about our motivations. Ideally, all our actions should be motivated by the desire to benefit others, rather than the desire to benefit only ourselves. Putting others first leads to happiness, not only for those who benefit directly from our altruism...

 

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.

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am tremendously excited about this video from Heidi Guttman Corning.  It is an excellent example of how the meaning of a powerful dream unravels over time.  It also shows how clues regarding our ancestry can reveal themselves in our dreams.  Heidi's immersion into her ancestral research and her dreaming was encouraged and supported by a unique program called Indigenous Mind.  (Indigenous Mind is the brainchild of Harvard-educated Apela Colorado, Ph.D., a woman of Oneida and Frank ancestry who has connections to traditional elders from all over the globe.)

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.
