The Dream and Its Amplification unveils the language of the psyche that speaks to us in our dreams. We all dream at least 4-6 times each night yet remember very few. Those that rise to the surface of our conscious awareness beckon to be understood, like a letter addressed to us that arrives by post. Why would we not open it? The difficulty is in understanding what the dream symbols and images mean.


Through amplification, C. G. Jung formulated a method of unveiling the deeper meaning of symbolic images. This becomes particularly important when the image does not carry a personal meaning or significance and is not part of a person’s everyday life.


EREL SHALIT is a Jungian psychoanalyst in Ra’anana, Israel. He is past President of the Israel Society of Analytical Psychology. He is Founding Director of the Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy Program at Bar Ilan University, and past Director of the Shamai Davidson Community Mental Health Clinic, at the Shalvata Psychiatric Centre in Israel. His books include The Cycle of Life: Themes and Tales of the Journey; Requiem: A Tale of Exile and Return; and Enemy, Cripple & Beggar: Shadows in the Hero’s Path. Entries, chapters and articles of his appear in several books and jour­nals. He wrote the chapter on Jerusalem in Tom Singer (ed.), Psyche and the City, and ‘Silence is the Center of Feeling’ appeared in Rob and Janet Henderson, Living with Jung: “Enterviews” with Jungian Analysts.
