Dream interpretation is a method that supports the understanding of dream content. This helps in surprising ways and can lead to the alleviation of symptoms, the return of the creativity and liveliness, and surprising new connections and directions in life. Dream analysis bring the unconscious background into consciousness, helping us not just to transition through our life stages, but to transform. In its deepest emotional sense, individuation is experienced and felt as spiritual development as well as psychological growth and maturity.
In Jungian dream analysis, the analyst does not interpret dreams in isolation, but in deep exploratory conversation with the dreamer. If an interpretation is not arrived at or does not sit with the dreamer, then it is shelved, and the process to find meaning for the dreamer continues. This exploratory work is grounded in the day to day life of the dreamer.
