Waking Dream Therapy: Unlocking the Secrets of Self Through Dreams and Imagination
For the past one hundred years, psychotherapy has neglected the inner world of image in favor of words. Now, Dr. Gerald Epstein presents the next evolution in therapy -- "Waking Dream".
Epstein's approach is brief, effective and powerful. Waking Dream Therapy uses mental imagery to journey inward. The explorer starts from a waking state and via imagination, reenters a night dream fragment to explore the dream. This inner journey reveals new directions and jolts the person to change. The book also contains a history of imagination; instructions for the process; examples of waking dreams; and the meaning of symbols. It appeals both to clinicians and to anyone who seeks self-transformation.
