Dreamwork for the Initiate’s Path, by Shauna Aura Knight

Reviewed by Jen McConnel

[Snip] I’ve never really considered doing any dreamwork before, so I was eager to read Shauna Aura Knight’s newest book. Weaving together personal experiences, dream psychology, and Joseph Campell’s mythic hero’s journey, Knight creates an easy-to-read book about the power of dreaming. While I would have enjoyed more exploration of common dream symbolism, as Knight aptly points out, there are a number of resources and dream dictionaries that are already widely available. Her book seeks to take the reader a bit deeper, exploring the process of initiation through dream study.

With short, digestible sections and lovely chapter illustrations, this book traces the initiate’s path through dreamwork, beginning with suggestions for starting out with dreaming, and culminating in trance work. Knight included a section on dreaming the future, taking an interesting stance on prophetic dreams; she has learned that “often that ‘ping’ of a remembered dream…is the sensation that gets me to stop and pay attention to the moment that’s unfolding around me” (pg 61).
