Justina’s book Honoring the Dream: a Handbook for Dream Group Leaders is perhaps the most thorough book on starting and leading dream groups in an effective and ethical manner that I have ever come across. It is a must read even if you have been engaged in working with a group for some time. The in-depth sharing of real world experience is not only invaluable but presented in a genuine heartwarming manner.

I have been using this handbook for four years and I still get new information each time I use it. It contains all you need to conduct compassionate, healthy and inspiring dream groups. Justina explains in very practical terms how to lead and why the process works (theory and practice). The variety of exercises is excellent and each is reliable for bringing dream wisdom into the light of day. Dreams have been used for guidance throughout all human history ~ the scope of this handbook and its user-friendly approach makes it clear why dream work is enriching and important to individuals and communities in our times. It is also motivational and encouraging to those who might question whether they are prepared to lead a dream group.

This book is a fabulous guide to studying dreams. It gave me everything I needed to know to get more focused on dream study. Justina’s passion for dreamwork is obvious; she got me more excited about being part on an ongoing dream group, and she gave me lots of insights for recording my own dreams and exploring them individually as well as in the group. Her ideas are creative, and the book is extremely well researched.

This heartfelt and motivational as well as easy-to-use handbook contains everything necessary to begin learning about dreamwork and dream group management. The large margins allow for note making while the binding allows the reader to spread the book flat. I have taken great pleasure in using this book with my dream groups.

Even though English is not my first language, I find the book Honoring the Dream very dear and comprehensive. It reflects Justina’s knowledge of dreamwork based on her love and passion for the theme, her constant study and her years of experience. Justina has the wisdom of expressing complex concepts into simple words. This book is a real treasure. I strongly recommend it.
