Dreams & Dream Work

Theresa Andersen > Dreams & Dream Work

“Working with dreams” means remembering and exploring the dreams from sleep with an eye to their deeper meanings. Each one of us is uniquely blind to the deeper meanings of our own dreams, and dream work helps us see what amazing gifts are there, just below the surface.” The Wisdom of Your Dreams.

Have you ever wanted to know what your dream meant?

Are you curious about learning the language of dream symbols? Me too.

If you are interested in learning about some how to’s and learning more about dreams and dream work then you have come to the right place. As I love interpreting dreams.

What can I expect?

Once we are set up to meet via zoom, or a conference call this is what you can expect from a dream interpretation session:

For a 30 minute session: be prepared to bring and share a dream that you are curious about and want help interpreting. We will work together to unpack your dream. We will talk about different aspects such as meaning, context and any new discoveries you might uncover from your dream. If you booked an hour long dream interpretation session be prepared with more than one dream.

Hints & Tips: I will give you some hints & tips about how to work with dreams on your own. Like this hint: There is no such thing as a dream with just one meaning. Dreams are multi-valent, meaning that: there are many applications, interpretations, meanings, or values within each dream.

According to Jeremy Taylor, “dreams are enormously helpful for loosening up the knots in our lives. They provide a bountiful source of creativity, renewal, strength, and wisdom. They are a direct portal to what is ripe for consciousness.”

My Experience

I became interested in learning about dream work over 12 years ago. One of the key teachers whose dream work continues to greatly influence me is that of Jeremy Taylor, who lived in California, San Francisco. He was a dream work pioneer and highly respected in the Dream Work field. With his 40 plus years of working with over 150,000 dreams he figured out a few brilliant things about how to work with dreams. I would like to share some of that with you during your session.

  • I studied and completed dream interpretation course work with Jeremy Taylor.
  • I studied with Peter Occhiogrosso who’s focus was on Archetypal dream work.
  • Another interesting teacher was Robert Moss. Robert developed the practice he calls Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of contemporary dream work and various methods of journeying and healing
  • From there I continued to stretch and grow as I began to co-facilitate dream groups.
  • Even after 12 plus years of doing dream group facilitation and working with individuals one on one with their dreams, it is always so enjoyable. There is such rich material that one can start to unpack with dream work. It is amazing how beneficial each dream is and how it is there to help serve you, as you move through your day to day life.

Understanding the Wisdom of Your Dreams

There are many benefits from consistently doing dream work especially when one engages in a committed and on going way, to unpacking their dreams. You can learn to glean meaningful information from the process of dream interpretation. Doing dream work regularly can serve to help you in your day to day life.

Learning about what some of the symbols and metaphors in each of your dreams might be reflecting back to you is rich material for you to explore. Unpacking some of the multiple meanings within each metaphor and symbol, offers the dreamer more aspects to ponder and make connection to one’s waking life.

Consider that all dreams come to be of service to us. They come in service of health and wholeness. Dreams direct us on a fundamental level to pay attention to something that is percolating beneath our consciousness. It is ultimately up to the dreamer to say for sure what a dream means to them.

Even a short snip-it of a dream can be rich with meaning. And the more you work with your dreams, the more likely you are to be rewarded with additional dreams to interpret. You can learn to capture your dreams effectively and learn ways to invite other dreams into your awareness.
