"Rev. Jeremy Taylor, DMin, (1943 – January 3, 2018[2]) was an American dream worker, author and Unitarian Universalist minister.[3] He was a co-founder and past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams.[4]

He was known as a proponent of Projective Dreamwork, according to which participants in a dream group should not attempt to directly interpret the dreams of another participant.[5] Rather they should preface their interpretation of a dream with a phrase such as 'If it were my dream...', and discuss the dream as if it were their own, in doing so acknowledging the fact that to some extent the interpreter always projects their own associations and life experience onto the dreamer.[6]

He is often associated with his theory that dreams come 'in the service of health and wholeness',[7] rather than merely to reflect the dreamer's life and ambitions, or scare or mock the dreamer.[8]"- wikipedia
