Inspirational and Informative Dec 12, 2007
After taking a dreamwork course from Jeremy Taylor, I was interested to know more about the archetypes that appear in dreams. The Living Labyrinth fulfilled my expectations and inspired me to explore the topic further. I highly recommend this book (and Taylor's other books) to anyone interested in dreams.
Universal, archetypal dream symbols lovingly explored Nov 10, 1999
Jeremy Taylor's first two books, DREAM WORK, and WHERE PEOPLE FLY AND WATER RUNS UP HILL, (q.v.) are brilliant introductions to exploring dreams with an eye to their deeper meanings. Both books offer insights that empower individual dreamers to look more deeply into their own dreaming experience and find more of the MULTIPLE MEANINGS that inhere in every dream - (even the tiniest fugitive fragments.) These books deal with forming on-going, lay-led dream groups, as well as working with one's dreams in solitude. LIVING LABYRINTH takes this self-empowerment dream work process one step further, encouraging dreamers to seek the "aha!" of meaning not only in the personal layers of significance in their dreams, but also in the transpersonal, archetypal symbols and metaphors that always appear in our dreams. Filled with re-tellings of some of the world's most interesting and emotionally compelling myths and sacred narratives, as well as accounts of many dreams of contemporary dreamers, the book explores the deep, recurring patterns of meaning and symbol that appear in both our individual dreams and our shared. collective religious and spiritual stories. There are alos 22 charming illustrations and diagrams (drawn by the author) that make the book visually appealing as well intellectually stimulating.
