The first book to approach reincarnation from the perspective of dreams

• Identifies soul bloodlines, the key to past life therapies

• Combines the author’s own experiences with case studies and dreamwork with empirical research

• Reveals how the analyst and client are often karmically linked

In Past Life Dreamwork, Sabine Lucas examines “soul bloodlines”--character traits, talents, and life issues that are the common elements and circumstances of successive past lives. Found threaded through our dreams, these bloodlines reveal the forces manifesting in this life, and, taken together, they shape individuality as well as destiny within the reincarnation cycle. Though a wealth of past life related material regularly surfaces in dreams, until now dreamwork has been largely ignored as a therapy for successfully integrating past life experiences.

Using the results of 27 years of personal and professional work, Lucas explains that past life memories help us work out karma on the macro level and trauma on a micro level. She distinguishes three types of past life dreams--classic, informatory, and hybrid--and demonstrates how to distinguish these from other dreams. Her dramatic case studies illustrate the effectiveness of dream therapy in recognizing and integrating the resonant and recurrent circumstances and ethical dilemmas that are played out in the subconscious mind. These psychologically revealing stories bear witness to how individuals are made whole through the integration of common strands of forgotten or repressed past lives. Lucas shows that the integration of past lives enriches the conscious self and also promotes universal tolerance through an understanding of the patterns of our psychic soul inheritance.
Past Life Dreamwork is a serious book, and ranks among the very few that are worth carrying in one’s briefcase, and sleeping on.”
D. V. Ahluwalia-Khalilova, Ph.D., senior lecturer in high energy and mathematical physics, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

“Both emotionally engaging and intellectually satisfying, this book is a major contribution to the literature of dreams and of inner exploration by a distinguished Jungian psychotherapist.”
Joseph Dispenza, author of God on Your Own: Finding a Spiritual Path Outside Religion

“This beautifully written description of a personal and professional journey will help many in their own search for ‘past life soulprints.’ Sabine Lucas’s case studies, grounded in dreams and validated through past life biographical research, add to the growing scientific evidence for the reincarnation hypothesis.”
Paul Von Ward, author of The Soul Genome: Science and Reincarnation

“I have just finished reading Past Life Dreamwork and I want to give it a five-star review. Aside from insights into her patients and ultimately herself, Sabine Lucas has helped me understand and contextualize dreams and patterns of dreams I have experienced over the past sixty years.”
Philip E Miller, Ph.D., director of the Klau Library, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion

" . . . a valuable addition to the library of anyone seriously interested in dreams and reincarnation."
Arlene Shovald, Ph.D., New Age Retailer

"From different kinds of past life dreams to case studies of dream therapy results, the focus in Past Life Dreamwork offers many paths for healing."
The Midwest Book Review, July 2008

"Sabine's personal thread of posited previous lifetimes for her soul genome reads as a historical thriller that should be experienced without my giving away any clues. It will take you through sex changes, cultural divides, positions high and low, and across continents and millennia."
Paul Von Ward, Dream Network, Vol. 27, No. 2, Summer 2008

"Sabine's beautifully and sensitively written book provides valuable evidence that our nightly dreams preserve memories from previous lives that clearly influence our emotions and behaviors today."
Paul Von Ward, Association for Humanistic Psychology, Oct 2008
