Social Dreaming | Sunday, October 25, 2020 — 10 AM Pacific Time
Presented by virtual care lab and Leslie Goldenberg
In Social Dreaming, our dreams become a shared, collective world. We tell dreams, we listen, we discover what connects them, and we let our imagination run free.
Experienced social dreamer Leslie Goldenberg, along with co-hosts Stephen Fitzpatrick and Sara Suarez, will guide participants to freely associate as we share dreams, weaving a collective dream from the dreams experienced individually. Instead of interpreting what a dream might say about an individual dreamer, we will approach dreams as an interconnected, collective experience to be transformed and shared together. After the practice, we will engage in group reflection to ground our dream experience and consider the unconscious social dynamics that undergird our experiences and agency. We will also compose a collective dream poem.
This practice opens a space for participants to safely share night dreams, sensory free association, and connected dreams emerging from what we share. Here, we offer our dreams as shared images for a collective reverie, available to associative transformation and re-telling by the group. Those who don't remember night dreams (or don't wish to share one yet) are still fully able to engage in Social Dreaming through the dreams offered by others.
