The writings of Greg Bogart PhD explore astrology and depth psychology, astrology and psychotherapy, dreams and the art of astrology.
Astrology and Depth Psychology
Greg’s writings bridge the worlds of astrology and your dreams, astrology and depth psychology, astrology and psychotherapy, and the stages of life span development. His books on spiritual depth psychology integrate yoga, meditation, and Jungian dream work into the practice of the art of astrology. These books have been developed in the course of 35 years of work as a psychotherapist, astrological counselor, and university educator. This website features book descriptions and reviews, several downloadable articles, and information about astrological counseling and how to schedule an appointment.

Dreams and Depression
My latest book is Dreamwork in Holistic Psychotherapy of Depression: An Underground Stream that Guides and Heals (Karnac Books, Fall 2016). This book describes how dreamwork can help alleviate depression, in both long-term and time-limited psychotherapy, and in self-treatment. The text explores how dreams shed light on issues contributing to depression—including drug and alcohol abuse, divorce, death and bereavement, conflicts about sex, health and body image, parenting, workplace stress and burnout, and ancestral, inter-generational trauma.
Combining Jungian and existential psychotherapy, I describe how attention to archetypal symbolism brings into focus new responses to pressing life challenges; and how allowing oneself to be affected by dream images and narratives promotes emotional, relational, and spiritual rejuvenation. This book will interest those who experience depression, as well as their therapists and loved ones. It details a method that can be practiced by couples and family members and adapted to group work in a variety of clinical, educational, and occupational settings—any place where people feel safe and free to explore, reveal, and discover themselves.
Visit karnacbooks.com for information and orders. You may also order through Amazon.com and other online booksellers. As an author I earn a higher royalty when you order directly from the publisher, Karnac Books, as Amazon takes deep discounts, therefore I request that, if possible, readers order the book directly from Karnac.
