I received the following email from a woman:
“Good evening, your book Dreams: Guide to the Soul has been so helpful in my journey in dream interpretation. It’s hard to find informative books that aren’t simply dream dictionaries and really relate to the subconscious. Can you guide me to any other resources to further my education in this? Thank you!”
The following was my response:
I personally like Robert Johnson’s Owning Your Own Shadow because it is short. It is the best summary of that archetype that I’ve seen. That archetype is critical to change, of course. His other books are good too.
I like the old Jungian analysts. I would recommend anything by Marion Woodman or John Sandford. I have attended a workshop with Marion Woodman and she gives a good woman’s perspective of it all while Robert Johnson gives more the male viewpoint.
If you want to learn the basic archetypes, there’s nothing better than studying the Greek gods and goddesses. The best source of this which is related to Jungian psychology and dream work are books by Jean Shinoda Bolen Gods in Every Man and Goddesses in Every Woman. I went to a workshop by her and sent her a question by mail. She answered me with a two-page letter about how I might get over my multiple sclerosis.
In a different vein, I will be publishing MS Mission Remission: Healing Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds sometime in 2018. It details all of the 20 or so approaches I used to reach the critical point of sending the MS into remission.
All My Best,
