Overview

Jungian analyst Barbara Black Koltuv evokes the image of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem as a place of dreams and soulful dreamwork. At the Wall, we offer up our prayers to God, and at the Wall, if we listen closely, we can hear the voice of God within us. When analysts works with patients to unravel the meaning in dreams, they are merely acting as a conduit--a Wailing Wall--between the patient and the hidden voice waiting to be heard within the soul. Through our dreams we can connect to the God within ourselves/ we can come to know our whole Self in a complete and truthful way. Simply writing down dreams, and allowing them to matter, opens a sacred pathway to inner awareness.

In this engaging book, Dr. Koltuv shares her wisdom, knowledge, and insight into dreamwork to show how each of us can find the way to the soul by using our dreams to find meaning, renewal, and healing. In her more than forty-five years of practice, Dr. Koltuv has learned that wholeness and healing come through a deep spiritual connection to the Self within. It is her hope that this book will help people find that meaningful connection by working with their dreams. By sharing her own dreams and those of her clients, she shows how important dreams and dreamwork are in the experience of intimately knowing and healing the Self.

Dreams are a gift from God and treated as such, soulful dreamwork brings integration, healing, and joy. Dreams are the heart's knowledge and the guiding words of the soul. They give us a symbol system and a personal soul language by which we can know and become our most authentic self.
