PART 3

THE GESTALT APPROACH TO DREAMS

Fritz Perls felt that the dream was a projection–that all components in the dream, large or small, human or non-human,  are projections  (representations) of the dreamer. “The dream is you–all of it.”  He suggests we regard every image in our dream to be an alienated part of ourselves.  He asks the dreamer to act the part of each image and to experience the events of the dream from the standpoint of each. Encounters can be conducted between the images, and when they fight, the dreamer knows he is on to something important. The aim of the encounters is to bring the fragmented parts of the personality into harmony so that they help, not hinder, growth. Record your dream in the  first person/present tense, in order to bring it into the here and now and to re-experience the actual feeling of the dream.
