C. A. Meier investigates the ancient Greek understanding of dreams and dreaming, Antique incubation and concomitant rituals. In this greatly expanded version of his classic work, "Ancient Incubation and Modern Psychotherapy" Meier compares Asklepian divine medicine with our own contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches to dreaming. He elucidates how the healing cure was found in the very core of illness itself -- a fact of invaluable significance today in both medicine and psychology. In helping us to recognise the suprapersonal aspects of illness, the dream is shown to reveal a transcendental path to healing.
