If we want to interpret a dream correctly, we need a thorough knowledge of the conscious situation at that moment, because the dream contains its unconscious complement, that is, the material which the conscious situation has constellated in the unconscious. Without this knowledge it is impossible to interpret a dream correctly, except by a lucky fluke. ~Carl Jung, CW 8, Para 477

On Body and Soul / Testről És Lélekről

On Body and Soul / Testről És Lélekről | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
What if one day you met someone who, at night, dreams the same dream you do. Try and imagine... Would you be thrilled? Would you be scared? Would find it funny? Or rather intrusive? Or, perhaps, romantic? But what if you are not the romantic type at all? If you shudder at the thought of esoteric crap? What if you have problems dealing with your own emotions? How would you face this stranger next day after your shared, tender dreams of the night before? Would you attempt to create the same intimacy and affection you share in your dreams during the day? How is it possible that at night, several kilometers apart, while both of you sleep in lonely beds, you can become one in soul and body, but during the day, facing each other in your flesh and blood reality, you are unable to properly get through even a measly first date? And what if even the second date was a catastrophe? And the third was especially disgraceful? Would you give up? And if you gave up, could you stand it? Could you bear knowing that the person who is your soul mate at night and whose body so naturally caresses yours, remains a stranger to you during the day? Wouldn’t you just die?
A contemporary tale about the pain and beauty of our existence. Endre, the director of a modern, decent, EU-comform slaughterhouse and Maria, the new quality inspector sent by the controlling authorities can’t stand each other. One day, by pure chance, they learn that they just had the exact same dream the night before. Both of them are embarrassed by this discovery.
The following day they check: once again, they had the same dream. As they continue to compare dreams day after day, suspicious and astounded, it becomes clear that they meet each night in a common realm. This other world is peaceful and harmonious: a snowy forest, where Endre and Maria are graceful deer who gently love each other. They cannot ignore the intimacy they share so effortlessly in their dreams.
Hesitantly, they try to recreate it in their every-day, flesh and blood existence. It proves to be harder than they guessed. After struggles, failed attempts, insults and tensions, the result is humiliating disappointment. But just when they are about to give up, passion breaks down the wall raised by awkwardness, and these two people, who are so evidently not fit for love, find each other. From that day on, they step as lightly and gracefully beside each other in their waking hours as their dream-world alter-egos do among the trees of the forest.

Dreaming, Racism and the Unconscious

Dreaming, Racism and the Unconscious | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
dreams offer an immediately accessible route to understanding these unconscious motivations. Because racism, (and all the other "isms"), disrupt our health and wholeness, both individual and collective, on a daily basis - our dreams regularly address these injuries and roadblocks to our evolving consciousness of relationship and deep shared common humanity.

BASHO & THE BURNING BUSH: How to approach your dreams barefoot | Natural Dreamwork w/ Rodger Kamenetz | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
Every image in life and in our dreams is potentially a burning bush. The “bush” by the way is a very humble object– it’s not a burning cedar for instance, it’s a little scrubby bush. The burning is the key.

Great short essay by my friend and teacher Rodger Kamenetz on the importance of becoming the image from the dream rather than having an idea of the image.

Bathroom Dreams: Vulnerability, Control, And Letting Shit Go

Bathroom Dreams: Vulnerability, Control, And Letting Shit Go | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it

The truth is, dreams about peeing, pooping, or trying to are some of the most common dreams I’ve come across—I can’t even remember all the pee or poop dreams I’ve worked with clients over the years. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ve had one. It’s not that surprising—all humans do this every day, multiple times a day.

Depth Psychology, Art, and the Archetype of the Walled Woman

Depth Psychology, Art, and the Archetype of the Walled Woman | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it

When you engage with the unconscious, when you invite dream characters into dialogue, when you create art that is truly driven by mystery and then surrender to the process, you move beyond words. Then, and only then, are you able to dismantle the bricks of those walls, conceptual artist Tracy Ferron insists. (Click title for audio interview and summary article)

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM | Natural Dreamwork w/ Rodger Kamenetz

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM | Natural Dreamwork w/ Rodger Kamenetz | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
To me these stories suggest that certain events take place in the imagination. Such also are the ‘events’ in dreams. That does not make them less real. They are real in their domain, have real effects and real causes. They become facts in the imagination, just as there are facts in the waking world. In some ways these events are “more” real in the sense that they underlie feelings and attitudes, and direct behaviors– if unseen then in unseen ways, but if seen, confronted, felt deeply– then in ways that give us greater insight and the possibility of changing our lives.

The Grail story is itself a projection of the Self as an inner center, unrealized by and inaccessible to those trapped in the medieval mindset.
Paulette Turcotte's curator insight, May 30, 2017 12:56 PM
Carl Jung remained faithful to his wife Emma in one way only serious scholars can understand: He promised never to talk or write about the Grail Legend, as Emma Jung spent thirty years of her life researching the Grail story. She died in 1955 before she could finish and publish her work. In keeping with his promise to her, Jung asked Marie-Louise von Franz to complete his wife’s lifelong endeavor. The Grail Legend, by Emma Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz, is the result of this joint feminine circumambulation around the archetype of the Self.

Marie Louise von Franz Comments on the Dream of Gilgamesh

 Gilgamesh got up and revealed the dream, saying to his mother: Mother, I had a dream last night Stars of the sky appeared, and some kind of meteorite of Anu fell next to me. I tried to lift it but it was too mighty for me, I tried to turn it over but I could not budge it. The Land of Uruk was standing around it, the whole land had assembled about it, the populace was thronging around it, the Men clustered about it, and kissed its feet as if it were a little baby. I loved it and embraced it as a wife. I laid it down at your feet, and you made it compete with me.

On Soul’s Revolutionary Road: Witnessing Another’s Unfolding. | Rebelle Society

On Soul’s Revolutionary Road: Witnessing Another’s Unfolding. | Rebelle Society | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
Soul wants to sink us down into the ground of our being, where it's fecund and rich, damp and ripe, ready for flourishing, continually opening and deepening into more of who we are, and what we are here for. To do so, our soul needs a witness in the other. An empathic, fiercely loving, solidly present, yet soft, warm and open witness. A witness that knows our soul is also feral, that it does not present itself front and center like the egoic aspects of the psyche do.
Laura M. Smith's insight:
Mining the depths of our dreams with another offers us the deep witnessing that the soul craves. In our dreams, our soul manifests as the wild, untamed, innocent child within that longs to be reconnected with us. www.archetypaldreamworks.com
