Course Description

Dream Interpretation

"A dream that is not interpreted is like a letter that has not been opened." 
(The Talmud)


Dream InterpretationAcross cultures and over the ages -- since the beginning of history -- dreams and their interpretation have both intrigued and bewildered people. From the ancient Greeks and Egyptians (and the peoples before them), to the Sigmund Freud's and Carl Jung's of this world and beyond.


That mysterious world we drift into and through, when we sleep, is bound by neither time nor space.  It is a land where the impossible becomes possible, and the nonsensical appears completely plausible and practical.


IT IS THE LAND OF DREAMS that has neither boundaries nor limitations -- a land where you can, and do, achieve whatever you aim for.


BUT as with any other land you need to be able to understand, to be able to speak the language' and that is what this course is all about.


We do not claim to cover everything you will want or need to know -- that would be impossible to do and misleading to claim.  But after completing the course you will most certainly have the knowledge to make basic sense of your dreams and the ability to begin interpreting them correctly.  Fluency will come to you with time, experience and a broadening of your skills.


There is so much more we would have liked to include but the contents will most certainly ignite the torches within that will illuminate the way for you.


You will learn how to become your own dream interpreter!

Course Lessons

  • Lesson 1: Why We All Dream -- and Why We Should

    A dream well-dreamt can prompt us to question the world around us, what we are doing in it, how we view it, and what we do -- as well as defining what is real and what isn't.
  • Lesson 2: Dreaming Through History

    The point is that dreaming is a fundamental part of all our lives, one of the very few universal strands that unites the human race.
  • Lesson 3: Freud/Jung/Perls

    Described by Sigmund Freud as the "royal road" to understanding the unconscious mind, dreams were the centerpiece of his highly controversial book, "The Interpretation of Dreams."
  • Lesson 4: Dream State, Levels, and Logic

    In this lesson we will be covering several of the better known, and more widely acknowledged dream states, as well as some very important points in relation to levels of dreaming.
  • Lesson 5: Dreams Across the Cultural Divide

    Dreaming is a truly universal experience; however, cultural and religious factors do play an important role in how people regard the significance and consequences of dreams.
  • Lesson 6: Your Own Dream Lexicon

    Our dream pictures and feelings are generated by our unconscious, and for our own benefit; you can find comfort in that. Our unconscious talks directly to us through our dreams, one-to-one.
  • Lesson 7: Dream Symbols

    The messages contained in our dreams are typically conveyed as symbols -- representing an idea, concept, or emotion -- something that is difficult to put into actual words.
  • Lesson 8: Dreaming About

    Yes, we often dream about things, and occurrences, that are common in our every day lives.
  • Lesson 9: Analyzing and Interpreting Your Dreams

    In practically every culture, and during every age in our history, dreams have both enthralled and mystified us, inspiring us to find bigger and better ways to understand their implications.
  • Lesson 10: An Eclectic Approach to Dream Interpretation

    Everything changes over time, so naturally the approach to dreams and their interpretation is no exception.
  • Lesson 11: Dreaming Creatively

    The real meaning of what it is to be creative is frequently misunderstood, with so many people thinking and saying things like, "I'm not creative at all."
