by Larry Culliford, MB, BChir (Cantab), MRC Psych (UK)

I am a frequent and vivid dreamer. Perhaps this is natural, but it may also be connected to having kept a ‘dream diary’ while in my twenties. On waking, I would recall and record as much as possible of any of the night’s dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am delighted to introduce to ATH readers Dr. Larry Culliford, an author and retired psychiatrist from the UK, who writes and teaches extensively about the joint fields of Psychology and Spirituality.  In a column he writes for Psychology Today, he shares a couple of his own transformative dreams.
Welcome, Larry!

 

Dream Medicine


by Nancy Huslage, MA

When the snake shows up in dreams, it almost always evokes a strong response.  I have lead dream circles for 15 years and it is a common symbol presented early in each dream group.  Since encounter with snakes in waking life are often frightening, they are usually the subject of nightmares in the dream world.  While nightmares are frightening, I have found that, once the dream is “unpacked”, the message of a nightmare is usually positive and helpful to the dreamer. Let’s explore what the snake may be trying to tell us...

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Here is a very simple video giving very simple suggestions about how to interpret and find meaning in your dreams.   This video is spiritual in nature, not academic, and includes a very simple spiritual practice suggested by proponents of Eckankar, which means "Co-worker with God."

 

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.

 

Dream Medicine


by Laurel Clark, DD, DM

Most people fear death. Although we know that death is inevitable, there is often a difference between what we believe intellectually and what we experience emotionally. Why is this so?  It would seem that such a universal experience could be met with acceptance...

 

Editor's Note: Death is a topic that evokes fear or outright denial in many people. In this article Laurel Clark shows how dreams can help us confront, and come to peace with, this mysterious transition.

 

Dream Medicine


by Valley Reed, CDT

When we have a love for something we strive towards in our everyday life, we may find in dreaming, we can connect with the greater experience and presence of those who have passed on, but their legacy remains. I have dreamt and worked as an activist toward peace and justice for more than 10 years. It is often difficult and thankless work, but clearly needed in order to create change from a culture of violence toward one of peace with justice...

 

Editor's Note: Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, and sometimes we dream with famous people who have an inspiring affect on our waking and dreaming life. We can also dream others in a mutual dream where it is possible to meet up in the dream space with other dreamers for wonderful adventures. Read more find inspiring dream adventures leading to a more peaceful world.

Q: I don’t want to try lucid dreaming because I don’t want my ego to interfere with the natural flow of wisdom and information from my dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Tzivia Gover was once a co-editor of Dream Medicine and she is still doing fabulous work in the field.  This article beautifully answers a frequently asked and important question about lucid dreaming.

 

Dream Medicine


by Darlene Parrish

Vision and Dream boards are fun and easy ways to help you manifest your dreams, goals and visions. There are several ways to do this.

The first and easiest idea is for if you just have one or two things you really want. If you want to go to Hawaii for a vacation, find a picture of Hawaii that represents your idea, cut the picture out, then tape it somewhere where you can see it every day, such as on your fridge door, or on your mirror...

 

Dream Medicine


by Betsy Grund, CDT

This time of year issues a special invitation to enter and engage with dreams. These nightly gifts transform us by expanding consciousness, even when we are unaware of the gift. Consciously engaging with dreams fuels this expansion and creates space for inner harmony and connecting with others. Deep awareness takes root in the personal, touches our relationships, and ripples into the community...

 

Editor's Note: Dreams are a gift of the season! The darkness of winter is the ideal time for turning inward and listening to our dreams, according to this wise and thoughtful article by Betsy Grund.

Dream Medicine


by Barbara Platek,MA

The ancient Greeks had a word for it: pharmakon. It meant “healing poison” and carried the startling idea that the personalities humans find repulsive or even harmful might actually carry the seeds of their own healing...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: In this important article, Barbara Platek, Jungian psychotherapist, talks about the shadow and how important it is for our health and wholeness to face our shadow and work with it.  Dreams are one way we can be confronted by the very shadow we most need to face.

 

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
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.
