THE WAY OF THE DREAM - GREAT FILM SERIES

Postby jasmine2 » 17 Feb 2014 06:00

I highly recommend this (free,online) film series to anyone interested in an in depth discussion of the psychological interpretation of metaphorical dream symbolism.

- YouTube - "The Way Of The Dream - Marie-Louise von Franz"

(4 videos - about 10 hours total)
This is an extensive series of interviews with Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz, analyst, who was a close collaborator with Carl Jung, psychiatrist.

Dr. von Franz initially says that she thinks many people can not understand their dreams without professional help.Then she provides a wealth of information and insight regarding frequently recurring symbolic dream themes and characters (or personifications), such as the shadow, animus, anima, and the Center (higher Self). Included are film clips of people on the street talking about their own dreams.

The film is introduced by Marion Woodman, analyst, who also has written a number of very wise books, including "Dancing In The Flames". She draws on her own experience with anorexia and other transformative life experiences. There are a few short YouTube videos featuring Marion Woodman.

Here is an article reviewing this film series.

Also, this article gives a good overview of the influential career of Marie-Louise von Franz.
