Generally, dreaming of meeting a guru or profound spiritual teacher can symbolize the awakening of the Wise One within. When the ‘spirit’ awakens within, you have moved beyond the path of family dynamics. At the same time, this type of dream may be exploring the idea of following a spiritual pathway in a cult like fashion, perhaps denying more basic needs that have not been met. Remembering that all characters represent an aspect of you, explore the symbolism, behavior, and how this character left you feeling to understand its message. See Wise Man under Archetypes and Characters.
