But what began as an exercise in autobiography soon morphed into an altogether more profound undertaking. The result is an absorbing piece of self-analysis: a frank statement of faith, philosophy and principles from one of the great explorers of the human mind. Covering everything from Sigmund Freud, analytical psychology and Jungian dream interpretation to a forthright discussion of Christianity and the existence of God, these final reflections on an extraordinary life are a fitting coda to the work of Carl Gustav Jung.
Why we dream: the definitive answer tells the remarkable story of how Joe Griffin discovered how and why dreaming evolved in mammals and helped us unravel what our dreams actually mean. Thanks to Griffin's work we now know what dreams are doing for us: they keep us sane, or, in certain circumstances, can drive us mad (psychotic). And this knowledge opens up wonderful new possibilities for humanity: greater creativity; improved mental health and deeper understanding of who we are. Griffin and Tyrrell convincingly show that dreaming is vital for mental health and that the brain state we associate with dreaming (the REM state) also has crucial importance for when we are awake. This understanding of the REM state explains not only how our brains construct a model of reality, but also explains hypnosis, how creative behaviour works, and why we develop mental illnesses such as depression and psychosis.

Nearly a century ago, Gustavus Hindman Miller published his groundbreaking masterwork, "10,000 Dreams Interpreted" (9781402751844), the most compelling and thorough study of all the symbols that appear in our dreamscape. Miller offered an enlightening introduction to dream history and types and organised his symbols into eminently logical categories. Now, popular psychic and medium Linda Shields has updated this classic, with revisions and additions to more than 2000 of his original interpretations as well as 2000 entirely new entries. This brings the book up to speed with our modern life, including objects unknown in Miller's time, such as mobile phones, computers, televisions and more. This title offers an exciting, enriching and elegantly packaged revision that's a must-have for anyone who dreams!

Why do we need sleep? How much sleep is enough? What is sleep? What happens when we don't get enough? We spend about a third of our lives asleep - it plays a crucial role in our health and wellbeing. References to sleep abound in literature and art, and sleep has been recognized as fundamental to the human condition for thousands of years. Over the past century, our knowledge of how sleep occurs, what it does, and what happens to our health if we do not have enough has developed hugely. The impact of poor sleep on our quality of life is also gaining recognition and the prevalence of sleep disorders in the population appears to be increasing as we live ever stressful lives. This Very Short Introduction addresses the biological and psychological aspects of sleep, providing a basic understanding of what sleep is and how it is measured, looking at sleep through the human lifespan and the causes and consequences of major sleep disorders. Russell G. Foster and Steven W. Lockley go on to consider the impact of modern society, examining the relationship between sleep and work hours, and the impact of our 24/7 society.

This groundbreaking new translation of The Interpretation of Dreams is the first to be based on the original text published in November 1899. It restores Freud's original argument, unmodified by revisions he made following the book's critical reception which included, under the influence of his associate Wilhelm Stekel, the theory of dream symbolism. Reading the first edition reveals Freud's original emphasis on the use of words in dreams and on the difficulty of deciphering them and Joyce Crick captures with far greater immediacy and accuracy than previous translations by Strachey's Freud's emphasis and terminology. An accessible introduction by Ritchie Robertson summarizes and comments on Freud's argument and relates it to his early work. Close annotation explains Freud's many autobiographical, literary and historical allusions and makes this the first edition to present Freud's early work in its full intellectual and cultural context. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

What is dreaming, and what causes it? Why are dreams so strange and why are they so hard to remember? Replacing dream mystique with modern dream science, J. Allan Hobson provides a new and increasingly complete picture of how dreaming is created by the brain. Focusing on dreaming to explain the mechanisms of sleep, this book explores how the new science of dreaming is affecting theories in psychoanalysis, and how it is helping our understanding of the causes of mental illness. J. Allan Hobson investigates his own dreams to illustrate and explain some of the fascinating discoveries of modern sleep science, while challenging some of the traditionally accepted theories about the meaning of dreams. He reveals how dreaming maintains and develops the mind, why we go crazy in our dreams in order to avoid doing so when we are awake, and why sleep is not just good for health but essential for life. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Our dreams are the diaries of our lives: as personal and unique as fingerprints, they are a record of our subconscious. More often than not, they are everything we never confess out loud, not even to ourselves. We all sleep every night. We don't always remember what we dreamed about and we almost never wonder why we have these dreams. But dreams can be a map of the things we want in the future, they can cure past neuroses and help us to understand the present. That's why they are so important. That's why they can be critical to our lives. The Book of My Dreams is a personal secret diary. It is a guide to drawing, outlining and identifying the motives and reasons behind the adventures that you experience each night. But mostly, it is like a writing manual that allows you to put down on paper the ultimate diary - one that comes from the fears, desires and joys that inspire your dreams. It also acts as a guide to understanding them and understanding yourself. The Book of My Dreams is unique. Like your dreams. Like you.

In this book, Stephen Larsen and Tom Verner examine dream traditions from around the world, beginning with the oldest records from ancient Egypt, India, Greece, and Australia and expanding to shamanic and indigenous societies. The authors investigate the psychology of dreaming, the neuroscience behind the dreaming brain, the Jungian perspective, and the intersections of yoga and modern dream research. They show how dreams and myth are related in the timeless world of the Archetypal Imagination and how dreams often reveal the wishes of the soul. They explore the practice of dream incubation, an age-old tradition for seeding the unconscious mind to help solve problems and gain deep insights. They examine the profound role that dreams have played in the survival of exploited and persecuted cultures, such as the Native Americans, African slaves, and the Jews during the Holocaust, and share inspirational dream stories from exceptional woman dreamers such as Hildegard von Bingen, Joan of Arc, and Harriet Tubman.

Sleep consumes a third of our lives, yet we tend to only think about it when it's proving a struggle - when a baby is born, if we develop insomnia, or when ageing brings new challenges to our slumber. The latest research tells us that sleep is essential for learning and memory, for mental health and well-being, and for optimal physical health. We also know that our sleep evolves throughout our lives, changing from baby to child to teenager and beyond. Sleep plays a crucial role in our waking lives, and we need to start paying it more attention. Nodding Off leads you on a fascinating journey through the science of sleep throughout our lives. Based on knowledge accumulated over almost two decades as a sleep researcher, Professor Alice Gregory shares real-life stories as well as insightful discussions with other sleep experts. She answers questions such as: Why are certain babies so much harder to settle to sleep than others? Why do children experiencing anxiety, behavioural problems or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder so often have co-occurring sleep problems? Why do so many adolescents enjoy lying in at the weekends? Why are scientists turning to sleep disorders such as sleep paralysis to try to understand paranormal experiences? Could prioritising sleep could help us control our weight and increase our attractiveness? Are sleep problems an inevitable part of ageing? Throughout this book there are important tips on helping you improve your sleep, which will allow you to feel better during the time you're awake. It is an essential read for anyone considering embracing the zeitgeist of prioritising sleep, and is perhaps even more important for those daring to resist.
