Social Dreaming: Unblocking the Creative Process

Training workshop for Artists, Psychotherapists, Counselors and Consultants

Facilitators: Servaas van Beekum and Kathy Laverty

Creativity is seen as central in our professional lives. Within the creative process we are working with what is seen and unseen. “The “Unthought known.” (Bollas 1991)

We all dream and we can work with dreams  individually and collectively, the latter is called ‘Social Dreaming.’

Social dreaming was discovered to be an important way of increasing awareness of aspects of collectively held unconscious.

When a dream is considered to be more than just a mental activity, it delves into the totality of our existence, including our brains, bodies and souls.

In this up and coming workshop, a Social Dreaming Matrix is introduced as a central methodology to uncover those hidden threads.

The dreams that are offered in the Social Dreaming Matrix are worked with as belonging to the group. We will look for the collective meaning, for the community in which the dreamers dream.

‘The Social Dreaming Matrix is a place, or setting, outside the goal-orientated configurations experienced in daily life. It is a special space for the mind to be reflective, to enlarges itself through considering dreams as social phenomenon. In short, it is a unique, precious space for people to find the potential for being creative.’  [Creativity of Social Dreaming by Gordon Lawrence]
