In Dreams: Language of the Soul, Marion Woodman turns her attention to the world of dreams and their collective patterns and interpretations. Acclaimed for her work as an author and Jungian analyst specializing in feminine psychology, Woodman describes how the very destiny of the soul is directed through dreams. In rich detail, she helps us explore the images, myths, and metaphors that express our collective concerns and grasp how dreams allow us to navigate and fathom the future.
In a noteworthy sequence, Woodman points to a collective dream pattern she has detected: the roaring to life of a vast feminine force. This "Black Madonna" archetype symbolizes the matriarchal soul, and it is related to the fate of the Earth itself. Listening to Woodman is like listening to a poet: We are able to feel the meaning of her words both emotionally and intellectually.
Dreams: Language of the Soul is a highly informative interview session with one of the world's leading Jungian analysts.
Additional topics: the value of dream interpretation, the collective unconscious, relationship of dreams to health, addictions and dreams, the wounded inner child, new myths for today, redemption of the female body, and much more.
