Synopsis:

Social Dreaming is the name given to a method of working with dreams that are shared and associated within a gathering of people, coming together for this purpose. In the first chapter, W. Gordon Lawrence outlines some ideas on this phenomenon.

Reviews and Endorsements:

'In editing these papers, I am struck by how the idea of Social Dreaming has caught the imagination of the writers and those with whom they have worked. I am also struck by the quality of thinking made available in these papers. Although it has a short history, Social Dreaming is now well enough established in a range of countries like the USA, Australia, Denmark, Finland, Italy, France, Israel, Ireland and the UK. As yet, there is no well-rehearsed theory, but there are working hypotheses, which are testimony to the fact that Social Dreaming is always in a process of becoming.'
- W. Gordon Lawrence, from the Introduction.
