A Profound Method to Work with DreamsIn research at the University of Chicago, Dr Gendlin found that certain specific bodily responses can open up and lead to small steps of a new experience These bodily responses can indicate the steps for interpreting a dream Theories about dreams differ and give contradictory interpretations Dr Gendlin derives 16 questions from the many existing theories to aid you, the dreamer, in the process of interpretation In this book Dr Gendlin teaches you to ask the questions so that your body can respond You learn to recognize how it feels when a question is about to lead to a breakthrough You learn to let the question complete itself so that the dream opens and you know without doubt what it is about.The first stage is learning what the dream is about But this alone may not yet tell you anything you did not know before.The second stage is getting something new from the dream for your own development The BIAS CONTROL solves what was, until now, an insurmountable problem People could not interpret their own dreams because they always imposed their usual biases on them The BIAS CONTROL shows you how to open yourself to a new step.Eugene T Gendlin, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago He has written books and articles in philosophy and psychology His work has been translated into than seven languages He was for many years the editor of Psychotherapy Theory, Research, and Practice In 1970 he was chosen by the Psychotherapy Division of the American Psychological Association for their first Distinguished Professional Psychologist of the Year Award....

Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams (English Edition) Reviews
I liked this book....gave good guidelines on how to interpret....He writes in a manner that is soothing.
I have been working and reading about dreams for ages. This was a great addition to all the other books I have read (Jeremy Taylor, Robert Moss, Patricia Garfield, Karen Signell and Jean and Wallace Clift...etc). Once I read this I got interested in the body focusing technique which led me to Eugene Gendlin's and Ann Weiss Cornell's books. What really helped me bring it all together was buying the CD dream lectures and coursework that were available on line with Eugene's website and also a different collection of CD's about dreams offered on Ann Weiss Cornell's website. The course work really drove home the "how to". They seemed kind of pricey at $80-100/each but it was the best money I spent. It taught me "how to" for myself and others without being dependent on someone else. Side note: I have absolutely no affiliation with Ann or Eugene, but thought I would mention these other adjuncts because it took me about 8 months before I realized these CD's were available. I wish I had found these 15 years ago!
This book has excellent insights on the use of dreams. The writing is, however, poor, and much of it reads like transcripts from a workshop. If it were re-written, its value would be enormous.
I am using this book in a Dream Group, and we have hardly started our study. However the readings look to be most helpful on the subject.
This book is a fabulous read for people who are looking for tools that bring them closer to knowing themselves. It provides valuable insights and simple processes that allow us to explore the depths of our psyche. Probably not for the faint hearted, any self exploration needs committment, compassion and most importantly, trust. Trust that this book will open up a whole new world to your dreams, and the parts of yourself so far hidden or shy about emerging.Do yourself a favour, and add this one to your bed side table.
If you are asking money for something then you should at least make a little effort.I have come to accept that with Kindle versions there is variable quality in terms of lay-out and formatting however this really is just an insult to the reader. There are whole pages which haven't even been OCRed and are rendered simply as images. So you turn a page and are unable to continue reading as the text is now miniscule and as it is an image you cannot even tweak the font.I had to return it.This is a pity as I was very interested in the book itself, I guess I will just have to pick up a second hand copy in paper.It is unfortunate that one cannot leave a review without a star rating, as I cannot comment on the author's work and it seems somewhat unfair on him, so I have given this a 3.
