There is a threshold where unconscious material may not cross into consciousness and falls back, unable to provide revelations. This is particularly clear when dreams, created and stored in the unconsciousness, fail to break through. Freud considered there to be a “censor” that prevents dreams from breaking through – an idea reflected by Jung but framed in terms of complexes.
This presentation looks to psychoanalytic theory along with a neuroscientific understanding of non-dreaming. I’ll offer clinical vignettes and present some alternative techniques to dream work, derived from active imagination, whereby one may access unconscious contents.
