Mythology and Dreams

Some say that dreams are personal myths and myths are cultural dreams. In modern dreamwork myths are ancient stories from a culture's sacred history that are revived as modern metaphors which can amplify and deepen our use and understanding of dream imagery.

For understanding how ancient myths can significantly enhance one's life, I highly recommend Joseph Campbell's Hero with a Thousand Faces. It is also a wonderful introduction to mythology and especially as it is used by Jungians. For a little more his series I suggest the Masks of God. All these have recently been re-released and are readily available.

There are two wonderful video collections now on Joseph Campbell, the most popular is an interview style with Bill Moyers called the Power of Myth and the other is a longer class like presentation called Transformations of Myth through Time. They are readily available in North America at local video stores for rental as well. I suggest with both of these that you have your dreams ready as you read or watch them!

To begin you online search of Joseph Campbellology, try the Joseph Campbell Home page Great for bibliography as well as classes, seminars and foundation issues.

Another great beginning mythology series is by the late Mircea Eliade, A History of Religious Ideas which traces the great mysteries from the Stone age through Christianity.

Self Guided Field Trip: If you are familiar with how to access Usenet, I suggest that you take a trip to alt.mythology, where there is an attempt to re-interpret mythology in modern day meanings. I feel there is a slight bias toward the light and New Age thought, and often it becomes a place to argue about Dungeons and Dragons issues, but beyond this is a developing community of myth concerned individuals focused on the patterns of meaning and value through myths and mythic symbols.

If you want to explore the world of mythology via the web, I suggest starting with MtyhText A great place to find a collection of resources on mythology not only on the web, but individual mail lists dealing with various cultural mythologies.

Bodywork and Dreams

Many of the popular techniques used in grassroots and peer group dreamwork have evolved in part from the body based psychologies of people like Arnold Mindell and Eugene Gendlin. Each of these therapists have developed techniques that can be useful outside of therapy for insight and life enhancement.

Lucid Dreaming Researcher's Bibliography
A extensive review of lucid dream research, articles and books by Drs.Carolus.M. den Blanken. 


Recommended Books on Lucid Dreaming:

Lucid Dreaming, by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D., (Ballantine, 1986). This is the seminal work that first brought lucid dreaming to the attention of the general public and legitimized it as a valuable field of scientific inquiry. It is still the best general reference on lucid dreaming, and a pleasure to read.

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming, by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. and Howard Rheingold (Ballantine, 1990) A practical guide for lucid dreamers. The first half of the book establishes a basic understanding of sleep and dreams, followed by a progressive series of exercises for developing lucid dreaming skills. After presenting the lucid dream induction techniques, Dr. LaBerge explains his understanding of the origin of dreams, founded on current views in the sciences of consciousness and cognition. The applications considered are: adventures and explorations, rehearsal for living, creative problem solving, overcoming nightmares, healing, and discovery of expanded awareness and spiritual experience. Many delightful and illuminating anecdotes.

Conscious Mind, Sleeping Brain, edited by Jayne Gackenbach, Ph.D. and Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. (Plenum, 1990) Nearly twenty dream researchers and other professionals, this is an essential reference for anyone interested in studying lucid dreams. Topics include: literature, psychophysiology, personality, therapy, personal experience, related states of consciousness, and more

Control of Your Dreams, Gackenback, Jayne and Bosveld, Jane (HarperPerennial,1989). A full exploration of the techniques available to bring about and control lucid dreams, how to use them to explore your life and personality and overcome fears and contact your desires. Who could ask for more?

Lucid Dreams, by Celia E. Green (Hamish Hamilton, London, 1968). This is the book that inspired Dr. LaBerge to begin his studies of lucid dreaming. Green reviews the literature on lucid dreaming up through the 50's, including the Marquis de Saint-Denys' work described below. She also presents case histories of lucid dreamers and well characterizes much of the phenomenology (subjective experience) of lucid dreaming.

Dreams and How to Guide Them, by The Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys, edited by Morton Schatzman, M.D. (Duckworth, London, 1982) A great pioneer of the art of lucid dreaming, the Marquis first published this exploration of lucid dreaming in 1867, yet this is a very modern, and, yes, lucid, thesis. He describes his personal experiments, and the development of his ability to exercise control in his lucid dreams.

Pathway to Ecstasy: The Way of the Dream Mandala, by Patricia Garfield, Ph.D. (Prentice Hall, 1989) Delightfully told story of Patricia Garfield's transcendent and erotic adventures with lucid dreaming.

Controlling Your Dreams, by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. (Audio Renaissance Tapes, Inc., 1987, 60 minutes) This audio cassette tape captures the essence of Dr. LaBerge's public lectures on lucid dreaming. It is highly informative. Dr. LaBerge begins by portraying the experience of lucid dreaming. He then presents methods for learning the skill, including the powerful MILD technique and more.

Trance Induction of Lucid Dreaming, by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. (The Lucidity Institute, 1993, 40 minutes) LaBerge's trance induction is designed to help you create a mind-set in which lucid dreaming will happen easily, and includes some other interesting symbol techniques

The Sun and the Shadow: My Experiment with Lucid Dreaming. Kenneth Kelzer, Kenneth (ARE Press,1987). A powerful account of an psychotherapist's journey into lucidity and wonderful document of the process and considerations. One of the best personal accounts as well.
