This chapter describes Jung's method of dream interpretation and explains how contemporary teachers can apply his approach in different classroom settings. The chapter starts with a detailed reading of the newly published book Children's Dreams: Notes from the Seminar Given in 1936–1940, which contains the edited text from a series of classes Jung taught at a graduate school in Zurich on the subject of earliest remembered dreams from childhood. This book provides a fascinating window into Jung's own teaching methods, and it allows readers to hear his spontaneous personal voice more clearly than in his other writings. Following Jung's advice in these classes, the chapter outlines various ways of putting dream interpretation methods into practice in present-day courses in religious studies, theology, psychology, and other disciplines. The chapter addresses common concerns about bringing dreams into the classroom that can be allayed by proper framing and a more precise definition of what a Jungian dream interpretation can and cannot reveal.
