ENCORE: Dream Incubation To Facilitate Creative Problem-Solving

Mar 13, 2024

2:30pm – 4:30pm CT

This workshop will offer examples from creatives such as Paul McCartney and Larry Page and leaders from Mahatma Gandhi to Barack Obama who listened to their dreams. We will summarize research on dream problem solving, directing dream content, and lucid dreaming—with a special emphasis on “dream incubation,” or asking for advice, inspirations, or problem solutions from dreams. Experiential exercises will offer practical techniques for incorporating dreaming intelligence into one’s personal life, creative professions, and business leadership. You will leave knowing how to do this tonight.
