David Low, MS, Ph.D. – Dream Consultant, Meditation Instructor, Substance Abuse Spirituality

“We dream because we are human… they are the most evident and available means we all have of accessing higher reality, of dialoging with God/Self. If you ignore them, your life will probably turn out fine, but you will miss out—as most of us still do, even today—on potentially greater levels of happiness, fulfillment, enlightenment. (Attention to your dreams is one thing worth getting addicted to!)” – David Low, Ph.D.

David Low, MS PhD is an author, former Adjunct Professor of Religion, drug counselor, and entertainer—a juggler for a few years out of college (which he still enjoys doing for charity groups). Today he does dreamwork, teaches meditation, and speaks on topics in popular spirituality and religion.

The first time Dr. Low meditated in college, he had a powerful experience of light and transcendence. After getting his counseling degree he travelled extensively and visited different Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Sufi, Jewish, Christian, and Orthodox Sunni and Shi’ia Muslim groups, all the while recording sometimes “spectacular” dream experiences.

After getting initiation from his major teacher, Dr. Low began having “literal dreams” which ended up directing major decisions in his life, sometimes involving deities and other consistent entities aside from his teacher. In 2014, a “minor epiphany” led him to write his first book, Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice: in Informal Textbook for Discerning Seekers.

His greatest passion is getting people to tune into more profound dimensions of spirituality, at both the personal and political levels. Another tool he uses to do this is his “9-Point Spirituality System,” which helps people fine-tune what they are already doing in their lives to reach deeper levels of their own being—a blissful place inside where we never suffer, no matter what we may be going through on the surface.

“On a number of occasions, David has helped me to discern what to put my attention on in, my vast dreamscape. His ‘passionately soft’ coaching has made a difference for me to then embody the dream, and to honor it. Because dreams are so intimate and personal, it is important to feel safe when you share them… David creates the space for that very well. He’s definitely a “dream whisperer.” – Bill Black, PA

DreamWork Sessions & Consultations

Dreams are important—important for brain maintenance in ways not entirely understood, but just as important spiritually! We all have inborn psychic faculties who job it is to continually scan our higher-dimensional perception for disturbances, and then report back to us in dreams! We’re always being shown potential ways of being happier—if we only care to look. But we don’t get something for nothing. We must do our part through study, contemplation and perhaps therapeutic action to fathom what we are being offered. I can help you see a dream’s best verbally interpreted meaning, and can also help you feel the emotions it can help you resolve, with its deeper embodied meaning.

Through email and phone conversations, we’re limited mostly to verbal interpretation, which of course can be powerful. When brought to the light, the deeper truth about something important in our lives blows away all the other, less accurate ideas we had about it! With Skype however, we can work with the embodied dimension of the dream as well.

So, I would be honored to help you understand and feel the messages that your dreams want you to get—especially if it’s recurring or unpleasant, and even more especially if you’re going through lots of turmoil right now. Obviously the message could be important! Video conference with me by Skype, Zoom (small groups) or just talk with me by phone if necessary. OR we could do written-only interpretations involving email plus a follow-up conversation—or email only. Whatever makes you comfortable. Get in touch!

“I got so much more than I expected from the one-day workshop with David Low. As a Licensed Professional Counselor myself, I am used to going to trainings and David’s was every bit as good as any I have attended. I participate regularly in 2 self improvement groups and was very happy to experience an important piece of personal growth through the processing of one of my dreams with David and our workshop group. It was more than just an ‘Aha!’ moment, it was actually growth. I heartily recommend David’s work. “
Tony Kearney, LPC Dalton, PA
“I greatly enjoyed David Low’s one-day workshop entitled NIGHTTIME DREAMS: GETTING HELP AND RESOLVING ISSUES. The material and work were deeply thought provoking. Thanks to you and the men in the group, I came away understanding two important things about myself that were bothering me but I couldn’t identify until Sunday. Great work, valuable material, excellent organization. Keep me posted if you decide to host other workshops.”
Baker Bell Wayne, PA
“Dr. David is a frequent and very much looked forward guest on BBSradio.com Meta Mondays, where we discuss all topics, and have guests from the metaphysical field. He is so helpful that he returns monthly to analyze and teach about dreams. I have referred clients who rave about his work, and I know that he has answered dream questions on the show so accurately and in tune with exactly what is going on in their lives. He is professional, yet very relatable.”

Adena Bannick AACP® RMT,CMT® Host of Meta Mondays , and Growing Up Indigo.
“I have been in groups with David Low to learn how to interpret dreams. He has been a remarkable teacher. He has shown respect for each student and allowed each their way of reaching understanding thru his carefully crafted program we follow. He is sensitive and caring which shows in many ways through out his time with us. His gentle manner guides us to find our own answers. His formula for interpretations of others dreams is unique for its kindness and clarity of purpose. It allows us to be wrong without consequences. I heartily recommend him for any project he will take on.”

Joselyn Ney, Lafayette Hill, PA
“David’s reading was so helpful in interpreting my dream. He helped me to see to the core of it. He related to every thing that I remembered and was so patient. I never felt hurried and felt he was genuinely interested in helping me. I would not hesitate to contact him again with any future dreams.”

Verlaine Cording, Port Indian, PA

SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND SPIRITUALITY COUNSELING

You have a problem. You leave your latest support group meeting, with a mental dose of personal-discipline reinforcement. 60 days so far! This time I wont screw it up, you think. You see your sponsor the next day, and then leave town for a weekend family get-together at the shore, that you have to attend… and where the booze will be flowing.

When you get there, little by little, you succumb. Feeling the need to connect with people, you laugh and joke, getting slowly swept up in the party atmosphere, with all its fun associations, and no support or strength of mind to stay your course and not drink. You soon toss the Pepsi-Cola out of your glass (or reach for your pipe or pills or works in your pocket) and it’s off to the races.

Sound familiar? If you are prone to addictive behavior of any kind, I can help. I specialize in common-sense and spiritually based strategies for recovery focused around self-inquiry and meditative practices (not in the usual sense) to support your more conventional efforts. And we’ll explore more deeply what each of the 12 steps, traditions, etc. means to you in particular, to get you rock-solid in your recovery! Should you be averse to 12-step meetings, there are other approaches out there which I can get you started on.

The insights you will learn are based on ancient teachings from world philosophical and religious systems. Through this combination of strategies you will learn and experience 1) greater awareness of mental processes, 2) internal recognition of triggers, 3) meditative techniques to apply in different situations, 4) greater self-love, and 5) a refined personal understanding of your “Higher Power.”

Let me get you started on a powerful set of tools that you can use, to ensure a more effective recovery!

LIFE SITUATION COUNSELING

If there is a practical situation in your life that you are confused about, or which you lack the courage or motivation to address, I can help you break the problem and deal with it in a step-by step way, often resolving personal issues for you in the process.

Life presents us with endless situations. Maybe you can’t decide whether to go for a new job you’ve been offered; maybe you have to negotiate with an ex to get belongings out of an old house; maybe you’re confused about whether to devote financial resources to something. Or, more personally, maybe you have trouble approaching someone for a relationship, or for separating or ending a relationship, or for apologizing, for negotiating something important. Or maybe you just want to figure out what you want to do, or what spiritual option to explore for you growth.

What we would do together is break the situation down, look at its components, weigh up the pros and cons, examine the people involved and how they are likely to react, and then be sure that you have the knowledge and confidence to follow through with what we both think (especially you!) is your most likely successful course of action. Personal obstacles often arise as you do this, simply because you would be examining the problem with greater precision than ever before, leading to greater awareness of what you will have to do and of your own problems in doing them. We would then resolve those issues as best we can.

We are often indecisive about things because we don’t see the “big picture”. The big picture always wants the best for everyone and everything involved, even if it doesn’t look that way at first. Otherwise you may feel guilty and reserved about what you’re doing, because you will not have thought it through like you could have. With all the feelings we experience around personal issues, the big picture can be hard to discern. So, if you lack clarity concerning a situation in your life, I would be honored to help you decide what to do!

David Low, Ph.D. Books:

David Low, Ph.D. is the author of Universal Spiritual Philosophy and Practice. This book presents all the central insights of mystical experience, and relates them in a practical way to psychological understandings of spiritual maturity. Over 20 different spiritual practices are reviewed, and 48 illustrations and lively graphics make for easy reading.  Available where books are sold, including AMAZON.

As a dream specialist, I wanted to acquaint my clients, students, and fellow dreamers with what I think are the most important “basics” in the field, including some spiritually related understandings which are often overlooked.  Although I have a thorough respect for the empirical studies which have helped us understand them, I believe the metaphysical dimension of dreams is more significant. They represent more profound, spiritual levels of communication shared by all human beings.

Available soon on Amazon! 

Book Reviews

“David Low’s book offers a haven of basic understanding of spiritual concepts and terms, and also clarifies some misunderstandings. It is simple in the best sense of the word, because its intent is to avoid the sometimes disorienting content of spiritual books: too complex, too dogmatic, too “woo woo” etcetera… it frees seekers from such burdens, so they can be more sure-footed on the path they choose or are already walking.”
Paco Tozan Vérin, Priest,, Hollow Bones Zen Order
“I love how Dr. Low’s book opens the door to a world of spiritual philosophies and practices which provides the reader an opportunity for self-discerning… Whether you are on the very first step of your spiritual awakening or have been on your path for years, this book has something to offer you!”
Rev. Carolyn Stern, , Interfaith Minister and Licensed Massage Therapist
“David’s book is an incredible testament to his life’s work on his own spiritual path. Not only does he include many of the psycho-spiritual traditions, but also the mind/body issues, so it is truly a new kind of comprehensive spiritual textbook to be studied and pondered over… This is a man who has lived the spiritual path for many, many years, and now can become one of its best teachers because of his understanding and personal experiences.”
Carol Day, , Pathwork Helper, craniosacral/energy therapist, former Faculty, Barbara Brennan School
