What are waking dreams ?

They are an experimental mental imaging technique; they help access the unconscious. Their purpose is to unlock the symbolic language of our souls' desires, angers, sorrows, joys and so on.


The method was developed by Robert Desoille (May 29, 1890 - October 10, 1966).

Lying on his back, the subject puts himself into a state of relaxation and closes his eyes in order to create an imaginary scenario in which he is the principal (or sole) hero. Placing himself behind the subject, the therapist sometimes intervenes to specify part of imaginary space or a possible bifurcation of the scenario. In another phase of the therapeutic work, the subject writes a written report which will be used in a face-to-face session in order to explore the meaning of the scenario.
