Vision: Seeing a cloister: you are emotionally confused. Don’t talk to others about it. Only solitude and silence will bring answers and relief. See Hermit, Monk, Nun.
Depth Psychology: A cloister stands for your idea of the “meaning of life.” It is also a symbol of your faith, your trust in God, or your spiritual strength. See Church. Maybe you would like to pull back in order to renew your strength.
On one hand, a place of silence, meditation, and security, similar to Abbey, Chapel, Cathedral, and Church. On the other hand, the desire to get away from the world, fear of life.
The cloister is also a symbol of sanctuary in times of trouble. This might be a suggestion to learn to deal with discipline—either to exercise more or to be more gentle.
To dream of a cloister, omens dissatisfaction with present surroundings, and you will soon seek new environments.
For a young woman to dream of a cloister, foretells that her life will be made unselfish by the chastening of sorrow.
