Jungian Dreamwork with Eva Rider

Katherine speaks with Eva Rider about the Jungian approach to dreamwork including a discussion of Jungian concepts including compensation dreams, big dreams and the dialectic, and also why nightmares are “the most important dreams” to connect with. A theme that weaves through the conversation is the lizard brain.
