Jungian Dream Work

What kind of dreams do YOU have?

  • Do you have dreams that haunt you for the next few days?
  • Do have a series of dreams where the same theme is repeated?
  • Do you have dreams from childhood that you still remember?
  • Do you have dreams that you are driving too fast to stop? Or that you can't find your car?
  • Do you dream you are going on a trip, but can't find the airport? Or your passport?
  • Do you have dreams which feature someone you know in real life and wonder if you should tell them?
  • Do you have dreams which later come true?
  • Do you have dreams that you have died? Or are pregnant?
  • Do you have dreams that you are falling? Or flying?
  • Do you have dreams that you have committed a crime, and are about to be found out?

These are all normal dreams. The question is, what do they mean! Since about 1990 I have been working as an interpreter of dreams in the Jungian style, to help people with their psychological and spiritual progress. Yes, dreams can really be about your spiritual life, even if you are not religious at all.

I work with your dreams in several different ways:

  1. In individual sessions, Australia and internationally, via Skype or Zoom.
  2. In small groups, where you learn some of the theory behind dream interpretation, especially from the Jungian perspective, and each week we discuss a participants dream. 

So what are dreams?

Dreams are a code, hidden away from the prying rational mind. We can utilise them to inform the decisions we make. They can guide the direction we take in therapy. I provide an eclectic approach to dreams, with a Jungian emphasis.

As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with a Jungian and philosophic orientation, I am not tethered to any particular method. However, my own lively interest in the interpretation of dreams has led me to lean towards Jung because of his extraordinary insights and use of myth, fairy tale, symbol, metaphor – anything that will enable an investigation of the language of our personal dream world. I have interpreted the dreams of many people in the last 30 years, and not one dream has been the same as any other, although common themes emerge.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST HERE!

This course is relevant to you if:

  • You have curiosity about your own dream-life.
  • You are a therapist of any kind, who might be listening to the dreams of others: psychologists, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, doctors, psychiatrists and social workers.

Course structure:

The course structure has two parts.

First, I set a text for you to read - usually a chapter from a book. The first part of our meetings will be discussing the text, so you understand the fundamental principles of dream work.

Second, we will work with dreams brought by each participant. We generally have time to analyse 1 or 2 dreams each week. So start recording your dreams, if you do not already do so!

Size of group: 6 participants.

No prior experience with Dream Work is necessary, and you don't have to remember your dreams for this work to be relevant.

Credits: CPD points may be accrued by attending this course. I am registered with AAOS and PACFA, and the Australian Psychological Society has the discretion to grant CPD points for this work. GPs can also claim small group learning credits, in addition to CPD.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST HERE!

Personal experience with dreamwork.

"At first I was dubious about the use of dream analysis in therapy, however I have found it to be incredibly valuable. Kaye is very skilful at unraveling dreams, revealing their deeper meaning and their relevance to what is going on in my life at any one time. I feel that therapy and dream analysis compliment one another very well and together they have provided me with a much deeper understanding of myself. Now I feel that I am missing out if dream analysis is not included in a session!"

Alex, Cairns, 2017

What do dreams mean?

"Dreams provide the most interesting information for those who take the trouble to understand their symbols. The results, it is true, have little to do with such worldly concerns as buying and selling. But the meaning of life is not exhaustively explained by one’s business life, nor is the deep desire of the human heart answered by a bank account” C. G. Jung. (von Franz, M.-L. 1998. The Way of the Dream. Toronto, Windrose. p 3.)

William Blake, 1805, Christ in the Sepulchre guarded by angels

Remembering Dreams

Some people say they don’t remember their dreams, but for most of us, dreams delight, puzzle, terrify, bewilder, infuriate and generally make a noticeable impression on our waking minds. Usually what we do in our dreams shocks the waking ego.  

But perhaps what we do in the day is equally disturbing to the I of our dreams.

Dreams can inform us not only about the cause of suffering and conflict, but also about outer relationships and the health of our own bodies. Dreams might even be alerting us to forthcoming events, so that we can prepare and not be taken by surprise.

Dreams the Royal Road to the unconscious.

"Dreams have been called the royal road to the unconscious (by Freud). CG Jung travelled down that road and brought back a map of the human psyche.” (Whitmont, 1991)

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

— Martin Luther King, Jnr, Strength to Love, 1963
