Jungian analyst Barbara Black Koltuv, Ph.D. evokes the image of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem as a place of dreams and soulful dreamwork. At the Wall, we offer up our prayers to God, and at the Wall, if we listen closely, we can hear the voice of God within us. When Dr. Koltuv works with patients to find meaning in their dreams, she is merely acting as a conduit— a listening heart–a Wailing Wall—–between her patient and the hidden voice waiting to be heard within the soul. With soulful dreamwork we can come to know our whole Self in a complete and truthful way. Simply writing down dreams, and allowing them to matter, opens a sacred pathway to healing, wholeness and joy.

In this engaging book, Dr. Koltuv shares her wisdom, knowledge, insight and soulful approach to dreamwork. She shows how each of us can use soulful dreamwork to find meaning, renewal, and healing. In her more than forty-five years of practice, Dr. Koltuv has learned that wholeness, healing and joy come through a deep spiritual connection to the Self. It is her hope that this book will help people find that meaningful connection by doing soulful dreamwork.

Dreams are a gift from God and treated as such, soulful dreamwork brings integration, healing, and joy. Dreams are the heart's knowledge and the guiding words of the soul. They give us a symbol system and a personal soul language by which we can know and become our most authentic self.
