Jeremy Taylor invites us to look inside of ourselves for healing. He takes us on a powerful journey into the dreaming mind and gives us tools to try and make sense of the often confusing signs and symbols we find there. The author is respectful in understanding that a dream is a singularly personal experience, and so does not try to fit dreams into a mold. He offers keys and clues to unlocking the mystery within. His guidelines for group dream work are grounded in respect and trust for individual members of the group, for the healing nature of the work, and for the very act of exploring the subconscious.

This dynamic book is filled with profound insights into the nature of dreaming, the health and wholeness promoting quality of dreams, and specific techniques for exploring and "unpacking" the MULTIPLE LAYERS OF MEANING & SIGNIFICANCE IN EVERY DREAM - (even the tiny, fugitive "fragmants"!) The book will be of great use and interest to those just beginning to take a deeper interest in their dreams, as well as seasoned, experienced dream workers. Filled with a wealth of fascinating annecdotes and examples, as well as clearly stated findamental principles, the book is a tool of self-empowerment for dreamers - particularly dreamers who are interested in FORMING THEIR OWN ON-GOING DREAM GROUPS.

Having read the book with care, and having experienced the author live, I can and will testify that, for the group in which I participated, the processs works, and the book fairly represents the process. All dreams that can be remembered ultimately do seem "to come in the service of health and wholeness." Taylor-style Dreamwork combines a form of intimacy with respectful distance, because only by looking deep within "as if it were my dream" can a group member have anything to say about someone else's dream. So, each dream belongs to each member of the group -- in individual versions. This process is illustrated, with huge quantities of theoretical material tantalizingly presented. Quoting Taylor again, "I am a fanatic because I am convinced from 30 years experience. Don't take my word for it. I am the circus barker outside the tent, touting the wonders of 'Jo-Jo the Dog Faced Boy.' Come inside the tent and see for yourself." I agree. The book conveys more of the flavor of the live experience than one would think possible.

This is one of the most accessible books on dream work that I've read -- and by "accessible" I don't mean dumbed down, because there's insight & intelligence in these pages, born of decades working with dreams. The emphasis here is on dream work in a group setting, exploring & explaining the advantages of this particular process, while warning against some of the potential pitfalls, especially for the inexperienced & ego-driven. Taylor places his focus on the healing aspect of dreams, sometimes edging a little too closely toward New Age thinking for my taste -- but that in no way invalidates the material he presents. He's quite open about his own personal preferences & even prejudices, and doesn't pretend to be all-wise & all-knowing. So the reader has a clear-eyed picture of what to expect going in, which I respect. For anyone who values the wisdom & self-knowledge to be found in dreams, this is an excellent resource; for anyone who doubts that dreams mean anything, this might just change your mind. Taylor comes across as warm, caring, and experienced in such work -- just the sort of guide you'd want when venturing into the universe of the Unconscious. While he provides plenty of background & theory, this is above all a practical, hands-on book. Recommended!

I had originally bought this book in 1993 when I had taken a course from Jeremy Taylor. It contains a development of his original book Dreamwork. I had lent the book out, and now needed a new copy. It's indispensible to understand Jeremy Taylor's continuing experience with Dreadwork.

A little long and round-about for getting to the very meaty stuff at the end.

The most beneficial part is at the end where it tells you to take every emotion/verb/person/place/thing in your dream that you can remember and assign its attributive description to the words "part of me." So, if you dream about your father, you might try "authoritative part of me" and retell your dreams doing this. Cleared up some major recurring dreams for me!

One of the best books that I've read on dreams that I still highly recommend to people when we start discussing dreams. It is an easy read, yet interesting and covers considerable ground. The book made more of an impression on me than most in other respects as well, the content is considerably more memorable to me than any other dream books that I've read. I attribute that to both the content covered and the succinct style of writing.
