The on-going significance of significant dreams: The case of the bodiless head
Journal/Book: Dreaming. 1999; 9: 233 Spring St, New York, NY 10013-1578, USA. Kluwer Academic-Human Sciences Press. 235-245.
Abstract: In the growing literature on significant dreams, relatively little attention has been given to the enduring even life-long, influence some dreams have on dreamers' lives. This article describes an ongoing research project on significant dreams by way of an illustrative case of a young woman whose 20-year-old dream still resonates in her psychic life. WE suggest that such dreams might be better understood in terms of the aesthetics of ''image '' rather than the interpretation of dreams as ''text.''
