Product Description


"With the publication of "Dreams, A Portal to the Source we have at last a manual of Jungian dream analysis that is presented with depth and clarity and that remains true to Jung and to the psyche. This book is balanced, judicious, comprehensive, and yet concise. It transcends all factions with a largeness of view that contains them all. All the well-known approaches to dream analysis are given their due. . .."
-"Psychological Perspectives, 1991
""Dreams, A Portal to the Source represents a thoughtful, critical examination of dream interpretation from multiple perspectives without premature closure or adherence to dogma. It is a treasure trove of thoughtful ideas in which exposition, exploration, and critical thinking are harmoniously interwoven with the wisdom accumulated in years of clinical practice . . . the volume [is] successful, rewarding, and important."
-"Quadrant, 1990
"The book . . . is a clinical guide for therapists of all persuasions and an accessible resource for all of us who delight in the richness of our dreams."
-"New Mexican, 1990
"It's a wonderful work. At last we have a really adequate manual on Jungian dream interpretation. What pleases me most is the reverent attitude to the dream that [the authors] convey."
-Edward F. Edinger
"It soon becomes clear that the authors are drawing from the rich storehouse of their years of thoughtful clinical work with dreams. Their labor and generosity in sharing the fruits of this experience with the reader are to be applauded and enjoyed. . . . this book's clear explication of both the basics and the subtleties of the clinical approach to the dream make it accessible to clinicians at alllevels."
-"Psychoanalytic Books, 1992

HASH(0x97ffbe7c) out of 5 stars Enter into the portal of your dream life.... 8 April 2001
By Craig Chalquist, PhD, author of TERRAPSYCHOLOGY and DEEP CALIFORNIA - Published on
Format: Paperback written by authors of a Jungian persuasion.
Those very familiar with Jungian dream theory will find the first couple of chapters slow and basic. Others will welcome the exposition of why dreams do what they do.
Dreams, not just as imaginal compensations for the narrowness of conscious daily life, but as completions, as fillings-in to be lived as night-time dramas; dreams as metaphoric missing pieces of what we neglect in our journeys toward wholeness; as messages, or letters, in the Talmudic sense, we must open to understand: all this is here, and warmly recommended.
I can't write a book review without at least a brief comment on style. In this case, nothing close to the poetry of a Hillman or a Romanyshyn. Adequately expository, though. They do a good job of seeing to it that the reader gets the ideas.
The authors claim to have written for clinicians, but the educated non-therapist unacquainted with the tools of dreamlife can find real gold in this book.
If you're curious beyond the simple "did I dream that because I ate a bad hamburger" or "I can't understand my dreams, so they don't make any sense," then begin here.

HASH(0x97ffbedc) out of 5 stars Modern take on Jung's ideas 20 April 2015
By Ben Davis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book brings much of Jung's work up to date a bit. That is, Jung's original psychotherapy work is dated a bit. This book attempts to bring it into the 21st Century clinic. Much of 21st clinical psycho-anaytical terminology is still based on terms started by Jung. I found that interesting. Something like this book ought to have been done long ago. It is remarkable how many improvements have been made in Dream work!

It is hard to learn Jung's analytical psychology. Because there are not many books which teach this theory systematically. However about this book I should say that it is very pedagogical and very clear in the presentation.
