About Dream Symbols

What does the content of your dreams say about your mind?

When trying to interpret or prescribe meaning to a dream we can look for symbols. Calvin S Hall developed a theory of dreams, where what we call symbols or contexts are all visual representations of personal conceptions. On OpenDreamLab we use the Hall/Van de Castle dream coding system for content analysis on dreams.
