    A succinct, empathetic and eloquent description of how to interpret dreams by a Jungian psychoanalyst. Dream analysis of "a letter from home": - Write down the dream as precisely and clearly as possible. - Highlight all the nouns (person/place/thing). Sometimes adjectives (e.g., colors). - List these nouns, then write a personal association(s) (images/ideas/feelings/thoughts) for each noun. - Read the dream aloud replacing each noun with a personal association. - Take the essence of the dream: where i A succinct, empathetic and eloquent description of how to interpret dreams by a Jungian psychoanalyst.

Sometimes adjectives (e.g., colors). - List these nouns, then write a personal association(s) (images/ideas/feelings/thoughts) for each noun. - Read the dream aloud replacing each noun with a personal association. - Take the essence of the dream: where is this happening in my life now OR where is it needed in my life now? How to deal with troubling recurring dreams or night terrors: - Speak the dream aloud to another person (re: signals you've received the dream in full) - Make a picture of the dream, write the story of your dream below, then tell it aloud to another person Dreams encourage us, they break open our narrowness of vision, they open our tightness of heart. Dreams make us as large as we really are. They give us the world on the terms of our wholeness, rather than on the terms of our woundedness or our smallness. So we have a longing to listen in order to be made whole...

    Beautiful well written guide to help you tap into your inner power to interpret your own dream. The author doesn’t tell you about symbols and their meanings but rather guides YOU to reflect on symbols in your life and what they mean to you. This is a great beginner book for anyone wanting to learn more about the meaning of their dreams

    I was amazed at how useful and beautiful this take on dream interpretation is. She doesn't declare dreams to have a specific interpretation, but rather, invites the dreamer to tune into her own life and find where the resonance is. Her discussion of dreams that people commonly have (being late, finding oneself naked, missing the plane, etc.) was helpful, too. I also appreciated the discussion of what to do with troubling and recurring dreams. I will definitely listen to it until I know it by hea I was amazed at how useful and beautiful this take on dream interpretation is. She doesn't declare dreams to have a specific interpretation, but rather, invites the dreamer to tune into her own life and find where the resonance is. Her discussion of dreams that people commonly have (being late, finding oneself naked, missing the plane, etc.) was helpful, too. I also appreciated the discussion of what to do with troubling and recurring dreams. I will definitely listen to it until I know it by heart. I think it will help me gain the good from visions in the night. For those who say this is not academic enough or scientific enough, I say, this is about dreams. It's a part of ourselves and our lives that isn't very well understood. All the science out there still can't explain dreams. If you want a dream dictionary that gives you someone's list of what symbols are supposed to mean, go pick up a dream dictionary. But if you want to be guided into understanding your dreams for yourself, without someone else's ideas laid on top, I think you'll enjoy this introduction. (You can get the whole thing on Amazon for 99 cents right now.) One last thought: Sometimes I have a hard time listening to Clarissa Pinkola Estes speak. She gets too rambling or soft-toned for me. But in this one, I felt she was speaking more directly, less dreamily (that's ironic). She was speaking like she had something specific to say. Anyway ... I liked it. Maybe you will, too.

    Listened to the audio book on Overdrive (1hr and 19min.) and greatly enjoyed her words and soothing tone.

Beyond understanding our dreams, I was surprised to find quite a bit of solid direction in inducing lucid dreaming, as well as how to use the knowledge we glean to improve our waking lives. Five Stars!

    This book is an introduction. I listen to this book and I think it was only an hour and 20 min. but it is a good started book. The author also wrote Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype. Briefly she talks about different types of dreams and how to work with them.

    When she says beginner guide, she really means BEGINNER. Very short, and goes over the most basic of concepts. Barely even grasps the surface of archetypal images. Nothing against the author, I'm sure she has other works that are great when she delves deeper, however I feel like there are other places to start in understanding dreams.

    A discussion on dream interpretation which includes writing your dream down, and writing down the associations for all the nouns and prominent verbs. As the associations are the ones that decipher the dream.

    Interesting and quick the idea is to write down dreams then pull out the big nouns and do word association on them then retell the story with your associations in there instead to figure out what the dream is trying to tell you.

    A non-fiction read that I found fascinating even for its brief analysis/interpretation. I did like that Estes breaks down the dream interpretation into simple categories, and how to examine them (with examples in tow), while also blending her own experiences. However, I don't think it's a comprehensive guide to dreams, even for the beginner. Some dreams are far too complex to interpret by the categories that she gives alone (as a writer, I know I have far more complex dreams in the sense of crea A non-fiction read that I found fascinating even for its brief analysis/interpretation.

Some dreams are far too complex to interpret by the categories that she gives alone (as a writer, I know I have far more complex dreams in the sense of creativity). However, she does emphasize good practices in order to remember one's dreams - writing them down being one of the key aspects of it. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, especially since Estes has such a pleasant, even dreamy voice.

    Consistent ambiguity is a strong theme throughout this piece. The interpretations are so vague that they become consequently unhelpful, and eventually annoying. Lack of scientific descriptions of the human brain (ie. "the dream maker" is really used as an area of the brain) is thoroughly frustrating. Especially, if you appreciate the sciences. Strongly influenced by cultural beliefs and not a practical approach to dream interpretation. Had to put it down half way through. Consistent ambiguity is a strong theme throughout this piece.

    An interesting book about dreams and their possible interpretation. This audiobook version is read by the author, which adds to the value as she has a nice, soothing voice. It can be ambiguous at times though. Also, I would not recommend it to "science" types as with the exception of some interesting psychological observations, it has no scientific basis. Yet, it is an interesting topic. An interesting book about dreams and their possible interpretation.

    This is a great beginner's guide. I listened to the audio book narrated by Clarissa Pinkola Estes herself. She reviewed 7 types of dreams and 14 types of archetypes that appear in dreams. Lots of my clients are interested in their dreams - I will recommend this book to them. This is a great beginner's guide. I listened to the audio book narrated by Clarissa Pinkola Estes herself.

    This book just hits the tip of the iceburg for dream interpretation but it was fascinating. She talks about figuring out the message your subconcious is trying to send to you through dreams and how to discover what that message is. I'll definitely be looking at my dreams more closely.
