Jung said that the imaginal work that he documented in the Red Book was the basis for all of his academic and theoretical contributions that followed. Wow! Given that this chronicle of his active imaginations occupied him for only a couple of years, and he contributed prolifically over the next 40 years, that's a pretty clear directive on the importance of such inner work. I have seen over and over that the act of engaging with dreamscapes and dream images as if they are living creatures, distinct from our rational selves, brings about a shift for the better in the individual's sense of wellbeing. Of course, these images have something important to "say" to us: Otherwise, they would not have shown up at all. Even those images that spring from the collective, or the World's dreaming, would not have come through unless they had met with some resonance deep within the individual's psyche. As a dream worker, I consider myself a facilitator of these "conversations," and I have found that I don't have to tend all the figures that seem important, or take a dream through to some resolution--the simple act of guiding the dreamer into some form of relationship with even one figure is deeply touching and can be transformative. It's about making real and deliberate contact with a soul figure, even if the connection is brief and light.

Thanks, Bonnie--I LOVE dream work! It's pretty funny, because when I encountered forms of dream work over the years that involved applying fixed interpretations on dream images, I felt completely dumb . . . As a result, I turned to collage, which I considered "dreams made manifest." Engaging with collage images in Active Imagination opened up astonishing revelations and insights. Tending dream images in that way has completely turned me on to dream work.

Dorene! So glad you created this group. I'm looking forward to doing a session with you soon so you can use DreamTending on me. Thanks for your good work!
