DREAMBODY

Dreambody presents, in clear language and examples, a rich approach to working human experience that integrates many traditions including Taoism, somatic body and energy work, Alchemy, mythology, quantum physics, shamanism, and psychology. Psychology traditionally focuses on understanding and analysis, whereas Dreambody work, which later came to be known as Processwork or Process Oriented Psychology, focuses on entering the experience directly.

Overview



"One may have listened to, adored, followed, and trained oneself to know the unconscious but still may have never truly experienced it. Only when consciousness is altered through accident, illness, or body work can one realize that the previous devotion to the Self was a type of subservient dependency, which now inhibits development." - Arny Mindell in Dreambody

 

Editorial Reviews



Dreambody is the foundational introduction to process oriented psychology, by its founder Arnold Mindell, an MIT Physicist and Jungian Analyst. The Dreambody bridges the gaps between depth psychology, somatic psychology, spirituality, and energy based mind-body practices.

Customer Review

"There was a gap between depth psychology and focus on the body, as if these two perspectives on the human experience were different worlds. The Dreambody bridged it by describing an underlying process that is both dream and body, and this  opened up whole new perspectives..."  - Serge Prengel, Editor, Somatic Perspectives on Psychotherapy
