Erik D. Goodwyn is an assistant professor and director of psychotherapy training at the University of Louisville, USA. He has published on the dreams of soldiers in combat zones, on archetype theory and cognitive anthropology and folklore studies, on the psychology of rituals around the world, on combining depth psychology with symbolic anthropology, and the application of ritual theory to grief and mourning in clinical practice. His previous books include Healing Symbols in Psychotherapy: A Ritual Approach, The Neurobiology of the Gods and, with Susan Greenwood, Magical Consciousness: An Anthropological and Neurobiological Approach (all Routledge).
"Understanding Dreams and Other Spontaneous Images is a
significant contribution to understanding and befriending dreams,
those nightly visitors which inform and connect us to the greater
realms of nature and the cosmos. Dr. Goodwyn has a gift for
integrating a vast range of research and boiling it all down to
digestible and useful concepts - the best dreamwork manual since
Robert A. Johnson's Inner Work."

"Drawing on a wide range of dream theorists and researchers, the
author explores dream interpretation (Jungian concepts, etc.) in
light of anthropology, folklore, mythology, neuroscience, dynamic
systems theory, and other disciplines. Created as a practical guide
for working with dreams, the book will appeal particularly to
Jungian therapists as well as to a broader audience.This
contemporary and creative text brings a renewed interest to the
exploration of dreams."
