This is a book on dreams like no other. Greg Bogart's inspirational approach to spiritual depth psychology is potent medicine indeed. We find ourselves drawn into these gripping stories, awed by the vitality of dreams, which reveal both the sources of our wounding and paths to healing. Bogart's innovative approach to the Dream Mandala allows us to reach the organizing foundation of dreams, and to perceive their profound relational, archetypal, and spiritual significance. This book will be a beacon for anyone seeking the guidance and wisdom that comes to us from the mystery within." * Linda Schierse Leonard, PhD, author of The Wounded Woman: Healing the Father-Daughter Relationship
'Greg Bogart shows how Jungian dreamwork can be applied effectively in brief-term and long-term therapy, couples counseling, group process work, and as a catalyst for personal transformation. "Taming Wild Horses" is a powerful case study that's unlike anything I've ever read. Bogart's creative reading of Jung, Von Franz, and Edinger, his centering, integrative dream mandala method, and his brilliant chapter on dreams and spirituality make this book highly recommended reading." * Stanley Krippner, PhD, Co-Author Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them
'For followers of both Freud and Jung, our analytic work must balance the dream with the transference. While the transference relationship has been abundantly considered in the literature, the process of dream analysis in recent years has remained unaddressed. Finally, a unique and remarkable book has appeared that is valuable to the student, the patient, and the informed clinician. Bogart's subtle, brilliant reflections provide an in-depth resource for Jungian analytic thought reflecting his extensive experience as a writer, teacher and clinician. I highly recommend Dreamwork and Self-Healing for professionals, their clients, and others given to self-reflection." * John Conger, PhD, psychoanalyst, author of Jung and Reich: The Body as Shadow
'Properly understood, dreams enhance the dialogue between therapist and patient about specific problems in living, contribute to a therapist's deductions about a patient's internal object relations, and add to the growth of the patient's self understanding. That Jungian dream work can advance psychological healing is convincingly illustrated in this book.' * John Beebe, MD, Jungian analyst, author of Integrity in Depth
'This is a rich and enthusiastic book about dreams in clinical practice. Bogart's approach to dreams is inspired mainly by the classical and archetypal Jungian traditions. Through the many detailed accounts of his patients' dreams (and some of his own) he explores how relationships, archetypal themes, complexes, persona and shadow, anima and animus, individuation, synchronicity, spirit and body are expressed in dream work. The clinical vignettes demonstrate the evolving therapeutic process as facilitated by dreams and reflected in them. Bogart's passion, respect and devotion to working with dreams is palpable throughout the book and so is the therapeutic, healing effect his approach has on the patients presented in the book." * Review in The Journal of Analytical Psychology
