"Dreams are our personal guides to self exploration, discovery and understanding"
Since the beginning of history, civilizations have explored dreams to understand their meaning and messages. Centuries of discovery and learning from the world's greatest thinkers, religions and cultures.
Today, modern dream interpretation builds on this historical foundation, applying professional counseling, psychotherapy and personal coaching practices and techniques to give individuals practical and proven ways to personally understand their dreams, their lives, and the answers to live their own lives more fully.
The symbol in the dream has more the value of a parable.
It does not conceal, it teaches.
~ Carl Jung
