Joseph Dillard, LCSW, Ph.D., has been a student of healing, balancing, and transformation since exposure to meditation and dreamwork through the work of the exceptional medical clairvoyant, Edgar Cayce, beginning in 1963, when he was thirteen. He studied philosophy, psychology, and comparative religion in college and taught meditation and dreamwork widely. He has worked as a psychotherapist specializing in pain management, anxiety, depression, addiction, and stress disorders since 1976. Concerned with the projective aspects of traditional dream interpretation, in 1981 he developed a dream character interviewing process called Dream Sociometry, after methods pioneered by J.L.Moreno. This work is a type of dream yoga, or psychospiritual discipline, whose purpose is to outgrow the self-induced dramas of our waking and dreaming lives. It is also a process of transpersonal awakening, called Integral Deep Listening (IDL). In 1985 Dr. Dillard co-authored Dreamworking, How to Use Your Dreams for Creative Problem Solving with Stanley Krippner, a pioneer in dream telepathy and shamanic healing. In addition to Waking Up, he is the author of a series of texts used in the IDL Practitioner training program: Integral Deep Listening: Awakening Your Life compass; Transformational Dreamwork: Toward an Integral Approach to Deep Listening; Escaping the Drama Triangle in the Three Realms: Relationships, Thinking, Dreaming; Integral Deep Listening Interviewing Techniques, Integral Deep Listening Practitioner, Transcending Your Monkey Mind: The Five Trees and Meditation,. He is also the author of Dream Sociometry, Understanding the Dream Sociogram; Seven Octaves of Enlightenment: Integral Deep Listening Pranayama; Ending Nightmares for Good; Light from Heaven: Deep Listening to Near Death Experiences; Words and Concepts that Are and Are Not Conducive to Enlightenment; Der Weg der Traume (German).
