A Soulful Dreaming and Writing Practice
Sally J Nelson

Being a really good writer involves looking deep into our selves as well as others in order to understand human nature our challenges and what motivates us. Often we work out our own problems through the stories we tell. Our dreams provide essential clues to our deeper selves. Nelson's soulful dream-writing practice teaches readers how to catch their dreams and turn them into a treasure-trove for personal growth as well as an endless source of writing material. Beginning with information about the different kinds of dreams we have she offers a unique perspective on how to correlate our chakra issues with our dreams. She also shows readers how to recognize personal mythic and transpersonal themes in dreams. Often a dream seems to end leaving us wondering what it was all about so Nelson introduces the Jungian technique of active imagination - drawing the dream material out in fantasy - to flesh out the dream and get more insight from it. Throughout the book she provides writing exercises and helpful advice on the craft of writing along with information on how other writers have used their dreams in their work. Sally Nelson has her doctorate in clinical psychology and master's degree in humanistic and Jungian psychology. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and family therapist and certified in biofeedback and hypnotherapy. She studied in graduate school with Dr. Stanley Krippner and studied the Ira Progoff approach to journal writing. Dr. Nelson conducts corporate stress management programmes and gives seminars in Jungian dream work and personal creative writing as a therapeutic process.
