"The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach."
The Meaning of Psychology for Modern Man. Collected Works of C. G. Jung, Vol. 10. 2nd ed., Princeton University Press, 1970. 609 p. (p. 134-156).


Chances are you don't remember all your dreams? You might even believe you don't dream at all?

Well, surprise! You do dream each and every night! During the typical night with 8 hours of sleep time - we each average around 2 ½ hours in the state of dreaming. And this dreaming sleep state most generally (but not always) occurs during the early hours of the morning, the hours just prior to our waking up.

So (very generally speaking) our first 5 ½ hours of sleep are spent in deep, dreamless sleep...

Mystic Tradition
Ancient mystic tradition tells us the first 5 ½ hours spent in the dreamless state are when we journey home each night to a deep, timeless place that lies beyond all images and where all images cease...
a place called Unus Mundus...

Our dreams originate from the "unconscious," and they have important stories to share with us.

So according to mystic tradition, each night we journey home to that place beyond all images (Unus Mundus).

Then... in the early morning hours we return from Unus Mundus carrying the gift of our nightly dreams.

Dream Interpretation
There are several different "schools of thought" concerning dream images and their interpretation.
However, one huge split is between those who interpret dream images as "signs" and those who interpret dream images as "living symbols."

"Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
And dreams in their development have breath,
And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy;
They leave a weight upon our waking thoughts,
They take a weight from off waking toils,
They do divide our being;..."
