Isolation from the unconscious is isolation from our souls, says Jungian analyst and author, Robert Johnson. We have within our unconscious a great energy system that reveals our conflicts, movements, developments and interactions. It is called dreaming. Dream images make no sense in ordinary terms, and we often dismiss them as meaningless. If we take the time to learn their language, we discover that every dream is a masterpiece of symbolic communication that comes always in the service of promoting our wholeness.
For more about dreams and dream symbols, read my brief summary of the importance of dreams in our lives, in the post, Dreams: Symbolic Guidance From The Soul on my blog, Women Becoming.
I studied with author and dream work expert, Jeremy Taylor, as part of my graduate studies in Berkeley; have worked with several Jungian analysts individually and in dream workshops over the past 15 years; have facilitated dream groups; and have worked with individuals in person, by phone and in group chats.
