WHO WE ARE
Robert Bosnak is a Dutch Jungian psychoanalyst, and
diplomate of the C.G.Jung Institute, who trained in

dreamwork, based loosely on the work of C.G.Jung,
especially on Jung's technique of active imagination and
his studies of Alchemy.

dreams by inducing a hypnagogic state--a state of
consciousness between waking and sleeping--through a
process of careful questioning. His techniques are now
applied worldwide, by therapists, artists, actors, and others
interested in the creative imagination. His first book,
A Little Course in Dreams was translated into 12 languages.
Since then he has written Christopher's Dreams: Dreaming
and Living with AIDS and Tracks in the Wilderness of
Dreaming in which he describes his techniques in detail. His
in-depth work has been effective both individually and in

rules and group emphasis.
