About the Event
In Social Dreaming, our dreams become a shared, collective world.
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. During the matrix, we avoid dream interpretation or questions to the person who told the dream. “Social dreaming” is not about the dreamer and his or her dream — it is about the dream itself and what it may reveal about the “social unconscious” — that dimension of the unconscious that lies beyond our individual unconscious–the implicit cultural and species-wide interconnectedness. 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.
