In this course, we will explore Jung’s understanding of dreams and his approach to working with dreams from both a practical and a theoretical perspective. We will focus on learning practical dream work methods from a Jungian a perspective.
The interpretation of dreams is central to all of Jung's work
Now learning how Jung understood dreams has never been easier
Jung's method of interpreting dreams, and how he understood dreams, is central to understanding his approach to mythology, fairy tales, and alchemy, and more. Jung understood the unconscious in an innovative way, and his approach to dreams was similar to how he approached all other contents of the unconscious. In this course, Dr. James R. Newell will guide you carefully through Jung's ideas and writings on dreams. Drawing on Jung's own words and the words of some of his closest colleagues you will be taken step by step through Jung's approach to interpreting dreams in a way that is accessible and easy to understand.

Ann Amberg, MCS, Transpersonal Leadership Consultant
I highly recommend Dr. James Newell’s courses. Upon completion of my certificate in Depth Psychology I had gained the confidence, focus and knowledge to support my success in my current PhD program in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. James is a knowledgeable and caring instructor with an engaging teaching style. All of the Depth Psychology Alliance courses I took: Introduction to Jungian Psychology, Active Imagination, Fairy Tales, Dreams, and many more, were phenomenal and I am most grateful for the opportunity to study with James.

Nirlap Bettenhauser, student
This is an outstanding educational program where one can learn multiple areas of Jungian Psychology. These courses are very well structured with an appropriate course load and high quality texts. Plus the price is incredibly reasonable. The courses I have taken with Dr. Newell have been intellectually engaging and have perfectly prepped me for my graduate studies in psychoanalysis. Not something I expected to receive from the academy, but very grateful I did.
