History of Dreamwork in Austria
Sigmund Freud: Dream interpretation is the "via regia" to the unconscious.
In 1900 Sigmund Freud published "Traumdeutung" (Dream interpretation). With this epochal book he founded psychoanalysis and engraved the discourses of the 2oth century like no other scientific school of this century.
Freud`s revolutionary contribution to dream research was the occupation with the dynamic latent dream thoughts behind the manifest dreamtext. He described a microanalytic method of dreamwork: association.
The classical psychoanalytic theory says that dreams are covered wish fulfillings, that means in dreams we find covered and taboo wishes in a symbolic form trying to get from the unconscious into consciousness.
Freud recommends to study symbols for an easier understanding of dreams. He tried to formulate a theory of universal dream symbolism. He thought that dreams come from a psychic region that is built up in early childhood when all people are occupied with experiencing their bodies and body functions and learning to get into relationship with parents and siblings.
Freud (1856 1939) worked and lived in Vienna, Austria till 1938, when he emigrated with about 100 of his students and colleagues to escape the Nazi regime. This migration of psychoanalysis led to a scientific and intellectual loss for Austria.

In Austria we have a varied palette of dreamwork:
dream yoga, dream inspired art, dream events, intuitive dreamwork,
various dream therapy and scientific dream research. Most of the
Austrian dream researchers are interested in other ways to explore
dreams, but until now there has been nearly no networking. I hope this
dream online guide will be a first step to more networking among the
dreamworkers of Austria!
