The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

Patterns of Connection with Social Dreaming

Patterns of Connection with Social Dreaming

Social Dreaming (SD) has developed a wide community and evolving practice. This workshop is designed to familiarize and train individuals in the art of hosting a SD matrix, both online and in real life situations. We will offer both theory and practice in SD and in taking the role of host in a matrix. Our objective is to provide you the underpinning to further explore dreams in groups, incorporating SD in your practice and organization. This workshop is designed for all levels of SD experience: Familiarizing first-time participants in the art of hosting a SD matrix and providing experienced SD hosts a space to share case studies & reflect on various forms of design & application. The workshop takes place online during the conference with two review and reflections sessions after the symposium.
