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, he outlines some ideas on this phenomenon. Here follows a wide-ranging collection of essays on the experiences of various practitioners, either personal or what they have found when taking this phenomenon into the wider social arena, such as the church, schools, consultancy and working with children.

'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.
