 Psychodynamic Dream Therapy and Architecture

Anyone who wishes to interpret a dream must himself be on approximately the same level as the dream, for nowhere can he see anything more than what he is himself. - C.G. Jung

Why Dreams?

   Dreams are the expression of the subconscious mind.  The neural network of the brain holds far more information about us, our pasts, and our means for interpreting and interacting with the world than most are ever aware of.  When awake, people use only a fraction of their brains, but when sleeping, their whole subconscious is unlocked. When you are conscious, immense resources are used to process sensory data, but through shared dreaming, we are together able to access the totality of your mind.

"What would be more natural, when we have lost ourselves amid the endless particulars and isolated details of the world's surface, than to knock at the door of dreams and inquire of them the bearings which would bring us closer to the basic facts of human existence?"
-C.G. Jung

Through work in psychodynamic relations and analysis and shared dreaming via the PASIV device, we can bring about true and meaningful change in your life.  Your current problems do not have to be your future reality.
