This book, the first in the four-volume Deep Well Tapes series, presents Marc Bregman’s visionary theory and practice of Archetypal Dreamwork. It is the foundational book for study at the Center for Archetypal Dreamwork, but is accessible to anyone with an interest in this fascinating way of working with dreams.
In this book you will learn the fundamentals of Archetypal Dreamwork, including what an Archetype is, why the Archetypes want to engage us, and how the process works: from dyads to Dying to Self to the alchemical process that leads to a soul connection with the Divine. Topics such as fear, trauma, projection, essence, love, and sensuality are explored at length in the context of the many dreams that are shared throughout. This integration of theory with the practical application to dreamers’ work maps the Archetypal Dreamwork process with incredible clarity and beauty.
The Deep Wells Tapes contains an in-depth table of contents and complete glossary of terms for easy reference of the material. Filled with diagrams and beautifully illustrated with artwork and poetry from many clients and students of Archetypal Dreamwork, this book is must-have for anyone with a passion for the dream.
"The journey to the Fields of Abraham and the fullest sense of being in the fields require the descent into the deep well. It is there that one finds the true life with the Divine. I know of no spirituality that exists without a direct, personal soul to soul connection with the Divine.
The dreams are like a giant screw turning ever deeper into this deep well. Ultimately, it is where the work will go, passing through the hurts, the loss, the ignorance, the lack of feeling, passing through the history of the past that has long since been forgotten. The screw turning through and in the underbelly of the core fear and pain that all humanity feels, and still turning into the place where He stands resplendent in front of us, driving us yet even deeper into evolution and growth.
The unfoldment within the deep well is the blossoming of our very selves and the experience of our selves that is completely new and unchartered. There is nothing I can say that is not just an implication of that future within each and every person. We are all capable of this, if we are willing."
