The Way of the Dream

The Way of the Dream is an in-depth documentary about brilliant psychologist Carl Jung’s work on the significance of dreams. Presented here in four parts, you will get priceless insight into the dream world from Jung’s personal friend and fellow psychologist, Marie-Louise von Franz. The series was filmed in 1987, but this presentation includes new introductions and commentary by Jungian analyst Marion Woodman. The Way of the Dream is truly incredible and it is really sad that people do not realize the importance of dreams. Dreams are truly “the language of the soul.”

“Like all of us, I have the impression that our culture and civilization is in a final stage, that it has entered a stage of decay. I believe that either we shall find a renewal, or else it is the end. And I can only see this renewal coming out of what Jung discovered, namely in our making positive contact with the creative source of the unconscious and with dreams. These are our roots. A tree can only renew itself through its roots. For this reason my message is to urge everyone to turn back to these inner psychic roots because that’s where the only constructive suggestions are to be found — how to come to grips with our enormous dilemmas: the atom bomb, overpopulation. This is the best way of solving all our problems which appear insoluble.” – Marie-Louis von Franz
