Pen and paper to capture the dream.
Dreaming circle is a part from the Dragon Dreaming method, developed by australian author John Croft and rooted in aboriginal traditions.
Dreaming circle can be used to connect personal intentions into a shared dream of the whole group. Dreaming circle does not compromise and intends to make all dreams come 100% true.
Once the group has a vague idea what do they want to achieve together it is time to ask a generative question: “What would this project have to be like so that afterword you can say – this was the best possible way to have spent your time?” Or: “What would enable you to say – yes! I am so pleased I worked on this project!?”.
And now everyone present answers the question in turn, perhaps using a talking piece. Add one dream at a time. If someone has nothing further to add for the moment, they can pass. They can add a new idea when it is their turn again. It is important in a Dream Circle that every idea is recorded. Don’t try to capture every word, just get the essence of it. Check with the speaker that this reflects what they wanted. Make sure that there is a flow in the Dream Circle – this way it is an uplifting experience. If you find the energy falling, there is something going wrong. Watch out for Analysis Paralysis, i.e. that your Dream Team gets stuck in the debate over the meanings of words. The Dream Circle continues until everyone in turn has passed.
Remember, to make the most out of the Dream Circle:
It is important to declare the circle as finished and – of course – to celebrate!
