Description: The dreaming mind, with its broad bandwidth, monitors cycles of our health and illness. Dreams were a central component of the ancient Greek Asklepian and Hippocratic traditions, which are the foundation of modern medicine and psychotherapy. Dreams the patient had before and during an illness helped diagnose it, determine treatment, and facilitated healing. Doctors also turned to their own dreams for diagnostic and prognostic information. This program will cover this historic practice and the specific dream incubation ritual involved. Examples of dream imagery, linked with a wide range of normal and pathogenic conditions, drawn from the instructor’s pioneering study and other sources, will be presented. Those attending will discover that this area has been continually well researched yet remains somewhat unintegrated into clinical practice.

A young woman dreams of finding tiny egg sacs underneath a leaf, and wakes wondering if she’s pregnant; she is. Oliver Sacks dreams the correct diagnosis of nerve damage to his leg from a fall, but his physicians ignore his reports of no sensation. A woman on thyroid medication learns that when she dreams of multiple furnaces in her house, they are too high and when she dreams of her house covered in snow, too low. A woman dreams that a friend, who died of cancer, tosses crabs into a pot of soup they are making; worried she too might have cancer, she got a check-up and it was caught early.
