The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

ISPSO ERM 2023 Meeting



Social Dreaming Invitation
(Monday 27 June – Sunday 3 July)
Early Session: Monday to Saturday 9:00-10:00 CEST
Early Session: Sunday 9:00-10:00 CEST "Reflection on the Social Dreaming Experience" 
Late Session: Monday to Wednesday 17:00-18:00 CEST and Thursday to Saturday 17:15-18:15 CEST

As many of our members know, it has been a tradition for over 25 years to offer a space each day for Social Dreaming. The matrix will open twice a day for an hour and will include a Dream Reflection Dialogue from Monday to Saturday. The final session on Sunday will be a shared reflection space about the dreams and the experience of Social Dreaming together.

Social Dreaming provides a space for the conference attendees to share the deep meaning of dreams as they emerge, not on an individual level, but on the social/collective level. We will invite participants to offer dreams and engage in a process of responding to the dreams with another dream or with an association. There is no interpretation or discussion, as the dreams, not the dreamers, speak with each other. In the Dream Reflection Dialogue we explore what has arisen in the matrix. The dreams may reveal new perspectives, raise collective concerns or reflect new thoughts and meanings in relation to this annual meeting or the wider social context.

The hosts for this year’s Social Dreaming are Angela Eden, Toni Mateeva, Michelle May, Rose Mersky and Matias Sanfuentes.  Stan Gold is the container for reflection and new thoughts.  

Social Dreaming sessions are open to all attendees registered for the Symposium.
