articles and stories, facts and reflections about not only dreams

This project was created as a platform for articles by various authors about dreams, dreaming, the unconscious and other phenomena related to the perception of reality and the human soul. The main idea and message of the project is that our dreams are a way to communicate with the unconscious – the divine being within us, through which we can not only learn something about ourselves, but also heal.

Towards the end of the fourth century A.D., the Neo-Platonist Synesios of Cyrenaica wrote in one night the book „On Dreams“, where he mentions a divine intelligence, an image-forming entity. I think it’s the same phenomenon we call the inner self, the unconscious, nature, god. That’s also why I named this platform „about dreams“, in memory of the philosopher and dreamer Synesius.

Who am I?

My name is Markéta Jurištová. I am a graduate of Masaryk University in Brno, specializing in psychology and sociology. I published a popular educational book about lucid dreams in 2021. I also publish articles as a journalist on Invisible Dog, the online newspaper of Lidové noviny, and on Seznam Medium. I am a contributing author, along with physicist and writer Rostislav Szeruda, to the online magazine Quantum Soul. I have collaborated with the American writer and popularizer of lucid dreaming practice, Robert Waggoner, on texts for the non-profit organization Lucid Dreaming Foundation. I have been analyzing dreams (not only lucid dreams) and trying to find a way to understand the manifestations of the unconscious and how to safely (yet effectively) communicate with it.
