"Greg Bogart's inspirational approach to spiritual depth psychology is potent medicine indeed." Linda Leonard, Ph.D
Books by Greg Bogart
Dreamwork and Self-Healing: Unfolding the Symbols of the Unconscious, is available from Amazon.com and Karnac Books (London). It is available in print and Kindle editions. Here's what the reviewers have said:
"Greg Bogart shows how Jungian dreamwork
can be applied effectively in brief-term and long-term therapy, couples
counseling, group process work, and as a catalyst for personal transformation.
“Taming Wild Horses” is a powerful case study that’s
unlike anything I’ve ever read. Bogart’s creative reading
of Jung, Von Franz, and Edinger, his centering, integrative dream mandala
method, and his brilliant chapter on dreams and spirituality make this
book highly recommended reading."
"This is a book on dreams like no other.
Greg Bogart’s inspirational approach to spiritual depth psychology
is potent medicine indeed. We find ourselves drawn into these gripping
stories, awed by the vitality of dreams, which reveal both the sources
of our wounding and paths to healing. Bogart’s innovative approach
to the Dream Mandala allows us to reach the organizing foundation of dreams,
and to perceive their profound relational, archetypal, and spiritual significance.
This book will be a beacon for anyone seeking the guidance and wisdom
that comes to us from the mystery within."
"That Jungian dream work can advance psychological healing is convincingly illustrated in this book." John Beebe, M.D.
"A unique and remarkable book that is valuable to the student, the patient, and te infrormed clinician. Bogart's subt;e, brilliant reflections provide an in-depth resource for Jungian analtic thought, reflecting hs extensive experience as a writer, teacher, and clinician." John Conger, Ph.D
"This is a rich and enthusiastic book
about dreams in clinical practice. Bogart's approach to dreams is inspired
mainly by the classical and archetypal Jungian traditions. Through the
many detailed accounts of his patients' dreams (and some of his own) he
explores how relationships, archetypal themes, complexes, persona and
shadow, anima and animus, individuation, synchronicity, spirit and body
are expressed in dream work. The clinical vignettes demonstrate the evolving
therapeutic process as facilitated by dreams and reflected in them. Bogart's
passion, respect and devotion to working with dreams is palpable throughout
the book and so is the therapeutic, healing effect his approach has on
the patients presented in the book."
"The accessibility of the book and its
plethora of examples make it ideal for people who are interested in learning
how to understand their dreams on their own. In fact, it would be hard
to identify another book so ideally suited to teaching individuals how
to begin working with their dreams alone without any reference to a “dream
professional.” The numerous case examples not only makes the writing
extremely clear in terms of what to do and how to do it but also in terms
of what kinds of immense gifts dreams represent. It would be hard to imagine
anyone reading this book without being inspired to work with his or her
own dreams immediately, the author makes such a compelling case. Story
after story shows how, even for people who feel beaten down and hopeless
in waking life, their dreams contain what they need to heal and hold up
a mirror of their own resplendency in wholeness. Different aspects of
Bogart's technique are illustrated, gently educating the reader in how
to work with dreams, especially how to make the connections between what
might appear to be mundane, baffling, or even disturbing imagery that
will unlock the symbolism in terms meaningful to the dreamer. Bogart guides
dreamers through a process to unpack the meaning of all dream elements,
and he shows how an understanding of Jungian symbolism can further extend
this interpretive process. A compelling case is made that dreams hold
the key to self-understanding, self-healing, and even self-transcendence.
This is a book of hope, a book that will inspire and empower readers of
any level of experience or expertise to unleash the potential of the apparently
mundane revelations given to them every night. Bogart shows how dreams
are blessings broadcast, and that anyone can access their foresight, hindsight,
and insight for personal growth."
