Dreams urge us toward wholeness. They express an inner wisdom that shines a light into our blind spots and steers us toward realizing our unlived potential.
"All dreams reveal spiritual experiences," said Jung. Dreams connect us to a source that lies beyond the personal self and infuses our lives with the experience of meaning.
Artists and scientists throughout history have found inspiration in their dreams. By opening a dialogue with our dream life, we establish a connection with a profoundly creative source within.

"Dreams show us how to find a meaning in our lives, how to fulfill our own destiny, how to realize the greater potential of life within us."
Marie-Louise von Franz
Dreams are the channel that bring the good part of us, the free part of us, out into the open.
Only when dreams are highly valued can they exert great influence. Our first step is this: we must place much higher value on dreams and visions than the modern world community affords them as sources of wisdom and transpersonal energy that can benefit our body/mind system.
Together the patient and I address ourselves to the 2,000,000-year-old-man that is in all of us. In the last analysis, most of our difficulties come from losing contact with our instincts, with the age-old unforgotten wisdom stored up in us. And where do we make contact with this old man in us? In our dreams.
