WORKING ON DREAMS
is a growing interest in dream groups. How
can a dream group function, especially
is not available a trained person who
knows how to
"interpret" dreams? This problem is one that
faced and the following article is perhaps the first
do so. McLeester proposes that the dreams themselves
can function as the leader, given that the people in the
group are mutually supportive and patient. We hope
that this humble and gentle essay will provide a start-
ing point for further discussion of this important topic.

Welcome to the Magic
Theater: A Handbook for
Exploring Dreams, which is reviewed
on page 243
of this issue of Sundance.
groups have been a part of
my life for about
three years. How I got started was that I
met a woman
who did work with dreams and she
offered to lead a
group for some of us that coming fall. I was very excited,
but when fall came she had changed
her mind. I didn't
want to stop there, so I decided to start the group myself.
The purpose was simple:
to get together, share our
dreams and see where that led us.
