Animals and Animal Dreams

The Cat, the Dog and the Horse

Regina Abt-Baechi

Daimon Verlag
On the basis of a lifelong relationship with cats, dogs, and horses, Regina Abt a graduate of the Zurich C.G. Jung Institute in 1985 who worked for many years with Dr. M.-L. von Franz, has the ability to understand the dream motifs of cat, dog, and horse in their unique and life-guiding ways. The personal and archetypal dimension of the psyche is nourished by this book. Animals in dreams tell us something about our own inner instinctual nature from which civilized man has increasingly distanced himself. They provide indications as to how we can once again show due respect for this instinctual life energy with its hidden knowledge, and also show us where we underestimate and violate them. In this book we look at animal dreams as a symbolic expression of the instinctual, that is, unconscious psychic functioning of man, which is crucial for the well-being of both the individual and the society.
