Some dreams seem beyond our own personal creativity. Meditating on such dreams gave me my first taste of a "higher power," presence, a being, an intelligence or consciousness-take your pick-that knows me better than I know myself, that is worldly wise yet spiritually adept, and who seems very close at hand, if invisible. Is it possible to empathize with such a cosmic perspective?

Dreams are real experiences, real because they make a difference. They change us, understood or not. Edgar Cayce considered dreams to be experiences--experiences of soul. His story of what happens in the dream state is that while the body-mind sleeps, the soul compares the activities and experiences of the conscious personality with the soul's larger awareness and idealistic intentions for that life. What we remember in the morning is an echo of the soul's evaluation.

To appreciate the soul's action in a dream relative to the ego's awareness of that activity, imagine this scene: A child plays with a ball outside, hypnotized by its experience and lost in the moment. The parent sits up on the porch, with an all inclusive perspective and ageless wisdom. The ball suddenly surges out into the street. The child automatically runs wildly behind it, aware of nothing but the joy of pursuit. The parent sees, in an eternal moment, not just the child's joy, but the immanent danger of the road, a life possibly cut short, and exclaims involuntarily, as any parent would do, "Oh, my goodness!" From somewhere above and behind the child, there comes the startling sound, the emotion in the parent's voice causing the child to hesitate and pay attention, but now aware only of the echo of that feeling laden sound.

One often wonders "Who is painting this dream world I find myself experiencing in dreams?" "Who is the Director of this movie?" In The Dreammaker's Apprentice, Mindell explores those questions and gives us a map to find the answers. He moves us beyond the personality & identity of the dreamer and the images & landscapes that intrigue us. He shows us how mindfulness can bring us to the subtle voice speaking through the dream in what he calls "flirts". As with any flirt, we can respond or shy away from it. To respond is to be the Dreammaker's Apprentice, to surrender our own perceptions to a much deeper Source and to benefit from the guidance of that Source.

More About the Author

Arny Mindell developed process work or what is called today, "process oriented psychology" (p.o.p.), in the mid 1970's. Beginning with Taoism, physics and Jungian psychology, by the 1990's he expanded process work to include quantum theory and deep democracy, a deeper form of democracy that applied to all states of consciousness for individuals and groups. Now process work applies to individual therapy, body problems, coma and near death experiences, large group, and organizational change management.

Arny is in private practice in Portland, Oregon, and teaches with Amy in many places around the world. He is known for his development of the "dreambody" and "process work" (process oriented psychology). He is the author of 21 books in 31 languages, including Dreambody, The Shaman's Body, Quantum Mind, Quantum Mind and Healing, and ProcessMind. Arny has an M.S. from M.I.T., was a Jungian training analyst, and has a Ph.D. in psychology. He is also known in the area of conflict management for his Sitting in the Fire and for his integration of psychology and physics, work on dreams, bodywork, relationships, and for interventions in near death situations. His newest work is the "Dance of the Ancient One" published by the Deep Democracy Exchange, was released in 2013.
