We Dream Together
Threads that tie people together are invisible until we turn them into new art. Making a camp or community integrates form and improvisation with artistic practice. The piece below is written for a Burning Man theme camp application as a process of creating culture and encapsulating the experiences we craft together in our dreams.
We are all dreamers, there is no other
We share a dream that spans space and time.
We ignite the dreamer within us, lighting up new ideas.
We connect hearts, bodies, minds with our passionate pursuits,
mobilizing movements with our community.
Dreamers do because we love.
The Dream Society creates the experience of the shared dream, seeding inspirations for each other. We share joyfully.
We care for ourselves and reach out to each other in this ongoing process of self-tuning and collaborative alignment. We hone each other by being honest with each other, seeking to be our best by reflecting the best in each other.
Our space is dedicated to collaborative dreaming. In this society, our shared dreams create reality.
Dreamspace can be created at any gathering or event.
We begin by transmitting open space for exploration.
Through play, song, poetry, light, art, science and discovery we explore timeless wisdom, rhythm and the beat of a shared signal.
We create nourishment for each other and experiment with tools for wellbeing to enhance our abilities together.
Dreamspace happens when we come together and share passions. The society we share is decentralized, open and available to participation. Our place is open as sanctuary to lucid dreamers and explorers from all walks.
The dream becomes more intricate and real as we weave ourselves together in vast experiences, a dreamcatcher mandala of jeweled moments tied together through our people.
Our shared dream becomes a sparkling dance of culture creation, improvising to flow with the surreal systems around us to create the world we want to live in.
Our dreamspace is open to share.
We invite you to relax and dive deep within the Dream Society to amplify and transmit your vision with others.
Dance, create, flow, love and be yourself in the shared dance of culture creation. In this play we become both the dreamers and the dream of who we want to be, in this world, together.
We are all dreamers, there is no other.
Who are you dreaming with now?
This post is a dedication to the man who first taught me the power of sharing dreamspace in music — RIP Prince. From When Doves Cry, the song I sang in the elementary school cafeteria:
Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you.
