Social Dream Matrix

July 31, 2012 on 6:31 pm | In Dreamwork | No Comments

Participants create a dream-sharing community on the mezzanine at the Pulitzer.

Art therapist Shelly Goebl-Parker and artists Hap Phillips and Nita Turnage lead a dream matrix.

The act of dreaming is normally a solitary one. Through social dream matrices, it becomes a shared experience, building a small temporary community when participants enter a dream matrix together.

Sharing dreams in this way enables the discovery of new meaning and significance in dreams. The dream matrices are followed by art making as a way to reflect on newfound discoveries, reflections and inspirations.

There’s a Nightmare in My Closet

July 28, 2012 on 6:37 am | In Nightmares | No Comments

There’s a Nightmare in my Closet, written and illustrated by Mercer Meyer is another good book for helping small children deal with scary dreams and the fear of the monster in the closet—or under the bed.
“Childhood fear of the dark and the resulting exercise in imaginative exaggeration are given that special Mercer Mayer treatment in this dryly humorous fantasy.”
-School Library Journal

Dream Work in Therapy: Facilitating Exploration, Insight, and Action

July 25, 2012 on 8:33 pm | In Dream Types | No Comments

In Dream Work in Therapy, distinguished researchers and clinicians explore Clara Hill’s cognitive-experiential model for working with dreams.

Dreams are useful therapeutic tools because they help people circumvent their defenses to reach deeper levels of self-awareness. Developed over many years by Hill and her students, the approach integrates aspects from several existing dream theories, such as Freudian, Jungian, Gestalt, phenomenological, client-centered, and behavioral, to create a theoretically consistent, three-staged model.

Working in collaboration with their clients (patients), therapists can help them explore their dreams, gain insight into the meaning of their dreams, and take action to resolve issues in their waking life. The book discusses the theoretical basis of the model and provides clear instructions for implementing it in practice.

Through the use of valuable clinical examples, authors present extensions of the model in specific settings and populations, such as groups, men, the bereaved, and nightmare sufferers.

Of particular interest to readers will be the last part of the book, which describes how to train therapists to use the model and provides a detailed review of the model’s empirical research. This invaluable approach offers therapists and their clients a structured but flexible method for maximizing the therapeutic benefits of working with dreams.

What is the Connection Between Dreaming and Play?

July 25, 2012 on 11:54 am | In Health and Dreams | No Comments

For small children the difference between dreams and real life is often unclear. They wake up from a dream of a favorite dessert and wonder where it is. Sometimes, if a dream was fun for them, they want to act it out. Experiencing the difference between dreams and reality is part of the vital importance of play in child development.

Children need free playtime to develop properly. Over-supervision, too much supervised “play” imposed by adults, inhibits their imagination and keeps them from acting out their dreams in the natural way that children do without adult interference.

Children need good playgrounds, places to run and scream and grow and act out fantasies from their dreams. Safe playgrounds provide a place to fall safely as well as to run freely. And safe playgrounds reassure adults enough for them to allow children to play freely.

Playground structures are important, too. They become the supports for acting out dreams. The top of a slide becomes a mountain top. A jungle gym becomes a castle, or a rainforest, or whatever a child makes of it.

Today playgrounds are safer than they were a couple of generations ago. The structures are safer. But are they more fun? That depends a lot on the freedom allowed to children for play.

One thing that helps reassure parents of playground safety is resilient playground surfaces to fall on, surfaces that repel water and keep the ground below swings, slides, and other structures from turning into slippery, dirty mud holes.

‘Rubber mulch’ such as that offered by RubberRecycle can be used to create a dryer playground surfacing and a safer place to fall. It is being used more and more on school and commercial playgrounds. So children can run and jump and build their imaginary worlds without interference from overprotective adults.

So parents can relax and simply let children be children. And children are once more free to run and play and climb and act out their dreams.

Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self

Lucid Dreaming

Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self.

While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to act and interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer-the apparent Inner Self-within the dream.

At first this seemed shocking, even impossible, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Subliminal Self, the Center, the Internal Self-Helper in vague and theoretical ways.

Waggoner came to realize, however, that aware interaction with the Inner Self was not only possible, but actual and highly inspiring. He concluded that while aware in the dream state, one has both a psychological tool and a platform from which to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man’s psyche as well.

Waggoner proposes 5 stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to a new level.

Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the definition of reality.
