Robert Bosnak is a Dutch Jungian psychoanalyst, and diplomate of the C.G.Jung Institute, who trained in Zurich, Switzerland from 1971 to 1977.
In the late 1970’s he pioneered a radically new method of dreamwork, based loosely on the work of C.G.Jung, especially on Jung’s technique of active imagination and his studies of Alchemy.
From the point of view of the dreaming state of mind, dreams are real events in real environments. Based on this notion, Robert Bosnak developed methods to re-enter 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 groups and easily adapts to the Web because of its simple rules and group emphasis.
