David Sunfellow writes:

"Let me cut to the chase: Wesley Wyatt is the most skilled person I know at dream work and dream interpretation. His abilities with dreams arise out of a lifetime of working with his dreams and the dreams of others. I know because I'm his brother. We not only learned how to work with our dreams together, but we have spent four decades sharing dreams and honing our skills. Whether you are someone new to dreams and dream work, or a seasoned veteran, everyone can benefit from the treasures my brother has collected over the years. Do yourself a favor. Buy his books. And then buy a few copies to share with those you love. While we are all born with angelic companions, in the form of dreams, only those who actually know how to work with these powerful, magical forces can make the most of their gifts. My brother can show you how to tap the same forces that have guided, protected, healed, and inspired many of humankind's most celebrated dreamers. The Alchemy of Dreams, in other words, are spiritual dynamite. These books contain pearls of great price that can make everything better, deeper, healthier, happier."

EXCERPTS:

“Each dream can be seen as aiming toward a widening of awareness. It offers comments, correction, and contributions toward problem solving. Thereby it strengthens, coalesces, or balances the dreamer’s (and/or analyst’s) waking views, and, thus, it serves as an important vehicle to support psychological development. It can also be seen as giving evidence of a source within the dreamer that does see and present metaphor and symbol for the sake of potential psychological insight — a source which comments, corrects and teaches.

“Indeed there is much evidence to suggest that dreams are manifestations of the guiding and ordering center of the personality, the Self, in Jungian terms. Both dreams and outer events can be fruitfully related to as symbolic messages coming from a source that sustains and directs the individuation process throughout the dreamer’s life. The art and craft of dream interpretation, whether the interpreter is aware of it or not, is an act of reverence toward this transcendent guiding power. Working on dreams in therapy serves to provide access to this source…”

...

“Dream work, thus, requires a witness, someone to provide a perspective coming from other than the dreamer’s context, with whom the dream can initially be encountered. Working with dreams, to be most effusive, requires a dyadic or group setting. Further, a mirroring and calling other can serve as a screen on which to project the dreamer’s reactions. The witness or therapy group helps to elicit associations and explanations, and to ground the dream’s message by drawing attention to relevant areas of the dreamer’s psychology and behavior that are visible to others but fall into the dreamer’s blind spot.

“…even among experienced therapists themselves, dream work needs dialogue with another person. In spite of extensive experience with dreams, such collegial checking and confrontation usually reveals essential details and personal applications that were overlooked. The saying popular among doctors, ‘the doctor who treats himself has a fool for a physician’ applies here, for the dream brings us unconscious dynamics, and we cannot, by definition, be aware of them easily.”

...

“To begin to do adequately deep work with a dream, the therapist must revere the dream’s image material carefully in its context and with open puzzlement until a corresponding associative affect-response emerges from the dreamer. Thus it is not enough, in associating to a particular dream figure, to find that she was ‘a friend from high school.’ Persistent questioning needs to find the current, emotionally charged, personal quality, event or memory ascribed to that person… Since it is all too easy to get trapped prematurely in the apparently obvious interpretation, it is imperative to heed Jung’s warning: ‘The analyst who wishes to rule out conscious suggestion [must] consider every in interpretation invalid until such time as a formula is found which wins the patient’s assent.’ The only reliable criterion is the dreamer’s assent — not necessarily conscious assent, for that may be colored by rational conviction, wishing, fear, or resistance. If assent is to be reliable, it must come from what might be called an embodied or ‘gut’ sense of ‘Aha!’ ‘Yes!’ ‘Touche’. This kinesthetic validation presents a deep confirmation for ‘the Self in the body’ which knows even when the conscious ‘I’ cannot. Unless this response is forthcoming, the analyst’s views of the meaning of a dream can only be considered hypothetical possibilities still awaiting confirmation or disavowal from the Self of the dreamer. Inevitably, too, following dreams will confirm, modify, or challenge an interpretation and the dreamer’s understanding of a dream. Specifically, inadequate interpretation by the therapist or understanding by the dreamer is likely to call forth repetitions of the same dream theme, often in a more numerous, more drastic or more dramatic form.”

Quotes

"For these, if paid attention to, brought back in the memory, written and kept and studied, interpreted as actual experiences which are symbolic and yet real in their nature, become guidelines to such an extent that one should be able to understand and rectify all those things in the life which are of an imperfect nature."  

"The greatest book of study is that one of your own, written by the soul upon time and space -- that of your dreams."  

-- Season of Changes, Ways of Response

........

 "You do not need dictionaries of symbols, nor do you need some esoteric knowledge to unlock your dreams. Dreams are as fundamental as breath to the human experience. The simple commitment to value your dreams and begin to share them will help open the doorway to understanding their meaning."

-- David La Chapelle

........

"If you take the idea of evolution of the species at all seriously -- if you think there is anything at all to the idea that species alter both behavior and physical structure to enhance their ability to survive in particular ecological/environmental circumstances -- then there must also be something about dreaming itself that is of primary and fundamental importance from a collective evolutionary survival point of view, because in spite of the multiple, serious, and dangerous drawbacks associated with dreaming, there is not a single relatively evolved species that has found it of increased survival value to abandon this seemingly... dangerous behavior."

-- Jeremy Taylor, from the book, Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill

.......

"In our era, the past is vanishing like smoke. The ancestors and gods and spirits who speak through dreams were once welcomed into the circle of community; were among its essential members. But who now will listen to them? The cultures that honored them are dying, their very languages becoming extinct. The thread of received wisdom that has sustained us is stretched thin to breaking. Shorn of memory, we no longer recognize as part of life's fabric those who have come before us. The voices of the myriad beings, visible and invisible, who surround us grow faint, though they are still talking in our sleep.

"...Our dreams are a continuum, revealing, if we care to look, that we do not exist alone, but in a skein of relationship with all that has been, all that is, and all that shall be."
