This Dream book is an introduction to the Dream Repertory (Dr. Filip Degroote 2008, available through Radar Opus). The Dream Repertory contains about 150.000 additions to the well-known Dream Repertory of Kent and Synthesis.
For the moment this book is only available in an electronic way, in RADAR Opus. In the near future a paper edition will also be available.
Content of the book:
The first part, gives an overview of the possible ways about approach and use dreams in homeopathic praxis.
Although homeopaths do not handle the same methods as psycho-analytic therapists, some of their approaches can be useful, especially those of Freud and Jung.
Dreams show frequently the essence, the main delusion or the deep sensation related to the indicated remedy. Signature language, as connection to the collective unconscious, often comes to us by dreams.
The Dream Book shows how to use whatever dream symptom coming from a proving or clinical experience (see: additions by the author to the Repertory). This in addition to the classical homeopathic interview and also in order to define the suitable remedy for the patient.
Additional information on this subject can be found in the dream article on website of the author (referring to publication in Homoeopathic LINKS, Vol. 24, 02/11 and 3/11: “The Dream as View into the Soul”, Filip Degroote).
The second part (main part of the book) consists of alphabetically ordered examples of ‘how to work with dreams as a homeopath’. About 200 -mostly rare- remedies, unmasked by the dreams of the patient, are explained and illustrated. Of each remedy a number of cases are listed and discussed separately. At the end of each case a general conclusion is formulated.
The third part gives us a practical tool, namely a repertory of dream themes, extracted from the cases in the book.
