Jeremy Taylor is the cautiously pessimistic, king of projective dream work.
In this very lively, and completely unzipped conversation we explored:
- Ways to transform nightmares (#Trumpmares, in particular) into fuel for your creative expression
- Spirituality in dream work
- The truth beneath the words, “Projection” (spoiler alert: it’s what we do all the time, whether asleep or awake)
- And (drumroll please), the two greatest stumbling blocks to great dream work (spoiler alert: mistaken literalism and premature closure)
These are among the things he will be sharing as one of the featured keynote presenters at this year’s IASD (International Association for the Study of Dreams) conference at the Wyndham hotel in Anaheim, CA.
If you don’t know who this amazing man is, here’s the 411:
Doctor Jeremy Taylor is a Unitarian Universalist minister who leads workshops and seminars all over the world, and also works with individuals and small groups. A major focus of his teaching is the role of projection and shadow. He is a founder and past-president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and the author of four books on dreams. After forty years of work in the fields of Jungian psychology, dream work, social justice, world mythology, cultural change, and the archetypal realm, he is convinced that all dreams come for our health and wholeness, and he continues to be intrigued and surprised by the multiple layers of meaning present in every dream.
