Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the best and most complete introductions to dreamwork."—Spiritual Frontiers



"At the more interesting end of the dream book spectrum we find books like Bosnak's, in which, after the basics of remembering and recording are taken care of, we get a taste of the interest and excitement the author feels on the subject of dreams, as we are invited to involve ourselves in our dreams, first through the eyes of the author and then entirely on our own."—New Age Digest

"Why do I like this book? It's full of surprises, charming, intelligent, subtle yet simple; not mystical or pompous as dream books tend to be. It never talks down. Ideas are original, deep, and many, and they are packed right into dream examples. This 'little course' is big stuff! There's nothing like it anywhere."—James Hillman, author of The Soul's Code

17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By William Timothy Lukeman TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 6, 2010
Format: Paperback
It may only be 121 pages long, but this slim volume is the best introduction to Jungian dreamwork that I've ever read. Each brief chapter is written in a deceptively conversational, non-convoluted style that contains a wealth of complex information -- not just important facts, but plenty to think about afterwards. For example, the chapter on alchemy & its symbolic value in dreamwork is all of 14 pages ... but it enables me to understand the basics of Jung's alchemical approach to the psyche more clearly than entire books. Bosnak may be providing us with nothing more than starting points, but they're solid & surprisingly rich in detail & substance. It's as if this skilled & understanding analyst is speaking directly to the reader, not just as doctor to patient, but as person to person.

If you're at all interested in exploring the world & meaning of your dreams, but you're daunted by the sheer immensity of the subject, and unsure of where to start -- well, this is the place -- most highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I never paid too much attention to my dream-life until my daughter started experiencing night terrors and intense nightmares. After visiting two different therapists, we found a great approach to cope and learn from her scary dreams in The Nightmare Solution: Simple, Creative Methods for Working Out Your Dream Problems) and now I'm ready to work on myself! I bought myself a dream journal and chose this book on dream work for its warm reviews and small size. There are a lot of similar resources out there, but what you can find in Robert Bosnak's Little Course in Dreams are:

- One of the best introductions to Jungian dreamwork
- Brief, conversational, clear language that conveys complex information
- Vivid personal anecdotes of dream-work from solo, partnered, or in group scenarios
- Minor amount of technical jargon considering the type Jungian tome
- Hands-on exercises for studying your dreams

I feel so much better in touch with myself now that I've started recording and analyzing my dreams.

If your want to start a dream journal, this is a great book. It is small enough to take anywhere. He also uses real people's dreams to illistrate different exercises and ideas which really helped me understand my own dreams better.

Bought and read years ago, and recently purchased another copy as a gift. It's an excellent and compact introduction to working with dreams - "The royal road to the unconscious" - from a Jungian perspective. Offers practical tips for retrieving and paying attention to dreams. A little gem that I recommend to others.
