Contains much good and helpful info on the interpretation of dreams. E.g. – all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness, no dream comes to tell dreamers what they already know, a nightmare is frightening to ensure that the dream will not be forgotten and because its message is of great importance. Author assumes all dreams come from God and helps the reader see spiritual meaning in them.

Jeremy Taylor's book Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill was one of my first great experiences in working with dreams. I took a workshop with him in Spokane many years ago and it changed my life.

I was able to work a dream in class that resulted in the understanding that I had "picked up my cross" and was on the right path. I'll find that journal article and post it here later. Perfect book to begin as we move ...more

There are many dream books - some are truly terrible - the ones that say - if you dream "X" it means "Y."

This is one book on Dreams that I feel comfortable in recommending. I do not Believe that anyone else can interpret your Dreams. Your Dreams are your own and only you can really interpret there meaning.

What I like about this book is Taylor's formation of Dream groups meeting on a regular basis to interpret each others Dreams. How this works is that talking about one's Dreams with others gives the person different possibilities as to the possible meaning of the Dream. This exploring of one's Dre

-only the one who can consciously consent to the power of the inner voice becomes a personality.- Carl Jung

This book demonstrates how dreams can be conceived as keys to understanding our past as well as leading one to creative inspiration for the future. this book discusses the universal symbolism which wakes its creapy head in our dreams. Dreams can be either crystal clear or unexplainably mysterious. dreams always lead the dreamer to discover truths about their deepest selves as well as one's

A great read to begin working with dreams. The book offers some comfort to those of us who rarely remember our dreams by reassurance that even dreams unremembered are moving the dreamer to health and wholeness. The techniques for improving dream recall have been helpful to me.
