Mythos: Shapes of Mind
Dreamwork has come a long way since Sigmund Freud's 1899 The Interpretation of Dreams. Today, a multitude of professionals use unconscious imagery to help patients heal.
The link between the unconscious and conscious is fragile and happens most vividly through dreams. In the presence of a therapist, these symbols become a container for the dream sequence, and therefore a point of entry for current psychological theories and practices. The objects act as tethers, so that the emotionally significant elements of the dream are not forgotten.
