Sample text

We asked the students to prepare for the next session by reading the text, and attending to their dreams. They were advised not to try to make connections at that stage. The programme for the workshop was as follows: • Social Dreaming Matrix. Thirty-seven dreams were shared in the space of an hour. These students needed no encouragement to work in this way! • Reflections. The students were asked to think about the experience of the Matrix.
