Dream Guidence

Machiel Klerk is a licensed therapist, expert and international speaker on dreams.  In his early twenties, faced with challenges, Machiel found a book by Carl Jung by chance. He has ever since been inspired by dreams, their guiding and healing powers, and has nurtured his special connection with them. Machiel has studied different dream traditions and has worked with African shamans, western dream workers, eastern dream traditions, and Jungian psychology, etc. integrating them into his unique way of engaging and being with dreams. Machiel’s new book, “Dream Guidance: Connecting to the Soul Through Dream Incubation” explains dream incubation, an ancient practice that has been used by cultures throughout history and provides practical and valuable information on how dreams can help us in all areas of our daily lives and personal development. In his book, Machiel explains how to cultivate a relationship with your own dreams – by taking the guidance you receive from your subconscious and how to understand what’s really going on when we dream and how to work with our dreams. He is also the founder of the online organization “Jung Platform”, which was created as a result of a dream that he experienced. Jung Platform is the worldwide leading organization in providing Jungian and Soul-Centered psychological programs to the general public. The organization has over 150 programs taught by prominent teachers and serves people in over 150 countries. Their free online summits attract hundreds of thousands of attendees. Machiel has, on numerous occasions, been recognized by his community for founding and growing the non-profit organization, The Jung Society of Utah. He was acknowledged in Catalyst magazine’s ‘Catalyst 100’, an exclusive listing of 100 people who have made Salt Lake City a more compassionate and vibrant place to live. For “making a measurable difference in the lives of Utahns through innovation, collaboration and commitment to the common good,” the Community Foundation of Utah recognized Machiel as one of the Enlightened 50, “a visionary who brings deeply impactful and highly accessible depth psychology education to Utahns.” Machiel is also on the board of several organizations, including the Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association and the International Society for Embodied Imagination.
