Dreams of Healing combines an intimate and poignant personal story with a deep look at the life of the unconscious psyche. In a therapy process focused on the provocative symbolic imagery of her dreams, the author confronts the searing psychosomatic legacy of her mother's illness and death. After years of terrifying nightmares, her dreams slowly reveal a positive energy that embodies and fuels the conscious work of therapy. Drawing on careful dream analysis, the psychology of Carl Jung, ancient mythology, alchemy, Marcel Proust and contemporary biology, the book takes readers into the deepest realms of the human psyche, exploring the nature of its transcendent, transpersonal center in detail. Relationship with this sacred center can open the door to integrative healing and to authentic religious experience, and can offer modern humanity a bridge between the implacably demystifying world of science and the longing of the human soul for relationship with divine mystery.
