He then asked the eminent psychoanalyst Marie-Louise von Franz to interpret these dreams on film, just as she would in a private analytical session.

    Most enlightening! This book (I read an older hardcover edition) is basically the transcript of a 10-hour documentary series that Fraser Boa made in the 1980s in which he interviewed Marie-Louise von Franz and had her interpret some dreams from volunteer contributors. The later version of the documentary that I've seen also included some bits and pieces by Marion Woodman as well, which were very helpful but aren't included here. Nonetheless this is a treasure of insights into the dreaming proces Most enlightening!

The later version of the documentary that I've seen also included some bits and pieces by Marion Woodman as well, which were very helpful but aren't included here. Nonetheless this is a treasure of insights into the dreaming process and common dream motifs from the perspective of one of Carl G. Jung's most prominent disciples. I've been reading about Jungian dream interpretation, and putting what I have learned to use with my dreams, for a few years now, and I learned so much more from this practical resource, it's amazing. I recommend it highly, though I recommend familiarizing oneself with at least the basics of Jungian dream interpretation first. The best starter book that I know of for that is Robert A. Johnson's Inner Work.

    Great read on Jungian dream interpretation and archetypes. "...fidelity is the basic loyalty to the essence of the other person, loyalty without compromise to the innermost heart of the partner. But that doesn't exclude taking a certain freedom, or leaving the other to have a certain freedom. On the contrary, if one loves the other really, one wants him ot be free, not to put him on a leash like a dog." Great read on Jungian dream interpretation and archetypes.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book to me is an eye-opening on the dream interpretation. There are some dream-themes that are really helpful to understand my own dreams from a psychology perspective. The book was easy to read because it's presented in an interview style; between Fraser Boa, the writer, and Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz, a Jungian psychotherapist. It may have some technical terms, but worth trying anyway. หนังสือเล่มนี้เปิดหูเปิดตาดิฉันเป็นอย่างมากเกี่ยวกับการวิเคราะห์ความฝัน มีธีมฝันหลายประเด็นที่ช่วยให้ฉัน This book to me is an eye-opening on the dream interpretation.

    Maria von Franz is an icon in the Jungian culture. The Way of the Dream (a transcript from the movie of the same name) is a very readable primer on the importance of knowing and discussing the meaning of our dreams. Most often, a Jungian analyst or dream therapist is needed. Her discussion on animus/anima or the hidden contrasexual parts of ourselves is colored by the patriarchal world of Jung in which she lived. It is a helpful read, although not definitive.

    I think that this book was very interesting to hear. I find this topic compelling, and this book helped me learn more about it. I personally think that this book can be confusing and hard to read sometimes, but it was a higher reading level than I am. Other than that, it was really well written and explained what it was trying to tell the readers using real stories and much more.

    This book is a solid introduction to Jungian dream theory. It is a well-edited transcript of documentary that flows easily when read. Now that I have a foundation thanks to this book, I plan to read more Marie Louise Von Franz.

    More than a great book on dream interpretation. Also describes a Jungian approach toward understanding the shadow, the anima & animus, and the Self. The index lists a large number of dream images which von Franz explains in the book. She has immense understanding of looking at dreams from a psychological viewpoint. (I love all her books, so I'm quite biased!) More than a great book on dream interpretation. Also describes a Jungian approach toward understanding the shadow, the anima & animus, and the Self.

    I took this book along on a flight between Chicago and San Francisco, reading it quickly en route. Having read pretty much all of Jung and quite a bit of other works about him and analytical psychology, including some of M.-L. von Franz' works, it was pretty old hat and, so, boring.

    Perhaps the single best introduction to the power of Jungian dream analysis and the psychology of men and women. Cannot recommend this book highly enough.

    I like this book very much. If you are interested about your dream and have an effort to write your dream on. Maybe it can help you to understand or discover your nights' tales.
