About the Author
MONTAGUE ULLMAN, M.D., is a New Yorker who attended Townsend Harris Hall, the City College of New York, and New York University School of Medicine, where he received his medical degree in 1938. Following his internship and residencies in neurology and psychiatry, he served as a captain in the army medical corps both here and abroad from 1942 to 1945. A graduate of the Comprehensive Course in Psychoanalysis at the New York Medical College, he became a member of the faculty there in 1950. In 1961, he left private practice to head a department of psychiatry at the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn. His interest in preventive psychiatry led to the opening of the first fully operational community mental health centers in New York City in 1967. His research interest led to the establishment of a sleep laboratory devoted to the exploration of the paranormal dream. Dr. Ullman is a Charter Fellow of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis and is currently Clinical Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Ullman has written numerous papers on the neuro-physiological, clinical, and social aspects of dreams and is the author and coauthor of several books, including Dream Telepathy (1988) and Working With Dreams (1979), and is coeditor of the Handbook of States of Consciousness (1986) and The Variety of Dream Experience (1988).

This volume is the culmination of many decades of Ullman's work to create an effective group dream process. It is designed to be available to everyone. The process does not require a therapist or other professional in an authority role. For Ullman, the dreamer is the authority and the group is there to help the dreamer reach his or her own insights about the dream.
This book gives everyone a chance to learn Ullman's method. It was developed by a man who has put his extraordinary mind, heart, and soul into his work. The basic steps to the process are clear, but the group dreamwork in action is subtle and yields profound insights about the symbolic content of dreams. As Ullman says, one of the most important points is that the dreamer feel safe, as the feeling of safety makes it more likely that they will be able to make deep discoveries. The work is valuable for both the dreamer themselves and the group that participates in the process.
I have done dreamwork for years, and have used this book as a guide since it first became available. In my work with dreams, and my studies of the myriad of approaches to dreamwork that have been offered by others in books and workshops, I have encountered well-known practitioners whose systems are loosely based on Ullman's work. Some of them have presented similar systems without crediting the source. Sometimes they have changed elements of the process, and have weakened the effectiveness of the process by going against one or more of its essential principles. I have not yet found a method to surpass the one Ullman has developed and refined through his years of first-hand dream leadership with people from around the world.
